John Leguizamo Recounts His Time on the Super Mario Bros. Film on its 20th Anniversary

May 28, 2013

There was a time when Super Mario Bros. was considered to be not just one of the worst video-game-to-film adaptations, but one of the worst films ever made. As the film’s core audience has gotten older however, some have started to embrace the campiness and allure of the direction that was taken, in light of the fact of how absurd a live-action Mario film that was 100% true to canon may have come off.

Leguizamo, who played Luigi in the 1993 film, took to YouTube to thank fans for their longstanding support of the film and told a few funny stories about filming the movie and accidents that occured on set. Whether you still hate the film or not, getting  an inside-look all this time later was pretty interesting. The video is embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
