Super Mario Bros. is an American adventure-comedy film slightly based on the Mario video game series by Nintendo. The couple Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel directed the 1993 film. The story follows the Mario brothers through their quest in rescuing Princess Daisy from a dystopic parallel universe that is ruled by the ruthless President Koopa. The film wasn’t well received at the time due to its lack of similarity. To the video game and confusing black comedy narrative. But the movie didn’t die because of its cult-like following.
Fun fact: A sealed copy of the US version of Super Mario Bros. made a record of the most expensive video game to be ever sold; the game hit $114,000 at auction.
