The Super Mario Bros Movie

Genre:  Animation, Family, Adventure, fantasy, & Comedy

Where I Got It: Peacock

A plumber named Mario travels through an underground labyrinth with his brother, Luigi, trying to save a captured princess.

I am such a cheap-ass. I really don't like going to the theaters much but I do have my regrets not seeing this on the big screen. Oh well. This was still fun on our TV.

Mario and his brother are sucked into an underground labyrinth. Mario has to save a captured princess, save the Toads, and save his brother. 

This was done so well. It was beautiful and was a wonderful nod to the games we all love. Lots, lots, lots of references that made me cheer and smile. 

The story was good. It felt fast in some areas, but I do get this is catered to kids so they don't want to waste too much time. Also - I can't complain it's only 1.5 hours long which is a nice change. I get exhausted with the long movies sometimes. 

Ooooo both sets of extra clips in the credits were fabulous and it made me excited for a second movie someday. 

Overall, this was a lot of fun and def worth the watch if you like the games or you like a fun movie. I'll stamp this with 5 stars. Might as well. No issues!

Glad you enjoyed it so much. We don't go out to theaters and I rarely even watch tv or movies or streaming. I'm just such a reader. *shrugs*
