Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Super Mario Bros. is a live-action 1993 film very loosely based on the popular 1980s Nintendo video game. Those expecting a more direct link to what happens in the video game are bound to be disappointed. There is frequent cartoonish violence -- pratfalls and slapstick -- but some of it is more than that, such as when two men attack a woman by grabbing her in a doorway as she screams. Characters are hit in the head with flashlights. There is some puerile name-calling on the order of "butt breath." There's occasional monster imagery that might be disturbing to younger viewers or those prone to having nightmares. During a slow dance, Mario reclaims a stolen necklace by burying his face in a woman's cleavage.
