The Crossover Moment:
If you’ve played the Super Mario game, you’ll remember that Mario and Luigi can jump really high.
But jumping really high would be ridiculous in a movie, obviously. It would be exactly the sort of thing that would require a scientific explanation.
So, rather than innately possessing the power to jump during their time in an ALTERNATE LIZARD DIMENSION, our heroes discover a couple of rocket boots, because… we don’t know.
Success Or Game Over:
Definitely game over. The jumping moments look nothing like the game. They don’t work in the same way as the game. They make us retroactively hate the game.
Still, it's the most faithful moment in the movie, which explains how it made it onto this list. It definitely wasn't us taking another chance to have a pop at Super Mario Bros.
We’re pretty sure the closest anyone in this film came to the original Mario games is faintly hearing the sound of someone else playing Sonic The Hedgehog in a neighbour’s house.
