Super Mario Bros.: The Movie - 20 most ludicrous moments, 20 years later

But wait, theres more!

Perhaps the strangest part of all comes in the closing scenes of the movie. After Mario and Luigi have resumed their normal lives, Daisy suddenly returns, dressed in quasi-military gear, telling the Mario Bros. that theres big trouble and she needs their help. That alone isnt too weird, but the implication is that someone, perhaps, believed that the movie would be popular enough to warrant a sequel. Yikes!

Its-a terrible!

Mario and Luigi may be gaming icons, but their debut on the silver screen--which was a critical and financial flop--left a lot to be desired.
