Super Mario Bros. (1993)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-m4nn5-1212648

Grab your mushrooms and trust the fungus, dear listener, because like the accident-prone vehicles of Dinohattan, we’re screeching and flipping our way into the Super Mario Bros. movie from 1993! A flawed diamond is still a diamond, so despite its many faults and the tumultuous production, we love this weird adaptation of the famous video game series. Joey swoons over Princess Daisy, Ron is in love with Bob-omb’s shoes, and (like Mario falling through an interdimensional portal) Paul is head over heels for Yoshi’s cuteness. We chat about the stellar cast and the earnestness with which many of them deliver their performances, the hit-or-miss visuals, the extended cut deleted scenes, Bertha, hair, music, behind-the-scenes shenanigans, and so much more. Check it out and let us know your thoughts on the movie (you can check out the extended cut for free here: https://archive.org/details/super-mario-bros-1993-the-morton-jankel-cut-extended-vhs). Joey also laments (kinda?) a long lost love, we share recent GTA hijinks, gastrointestinal problems, and more.
