Cult Classic among fans
The Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive is a site that discusses the movie and archives information about its actors, production, merchandise, etc. and has a small community of fans devoted to discussing the movie and working towards a special edition DVD or Blu-Ray release.
It's just one small site, but has been active for the last three years (established 14 years after the release of the movie, suggesting there was continued interest) and has continued activity on the forums. I'll work to get further evidence of significant cult status among general Super Mario and movie fans if this information isn't enough. Jackal Killer (talk) 21:14, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
- I don't get it. It is natural fans of Super Mario will enjoy the movie. This is not noteable. G.I.Joe fans enjoy the Joe movie, for example. Lots42 (talk) 03:34, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
- A fair amount of fans of the Super Mario Bros. game series don't enjoy the movie while a fair amount of fans of the G.I. Joe franchise doesn't like their movie adaptation. The difference is that the Super Mario Bros. movie was a commercial and critical failure, only recently garnering praise from fans and the crew of the film.

Chicxulxub meteor reference?
I really don't beleive that the reference for a 'Chicxulub meteor' is an appropriate link from this article, cos said meteor struck Mexico, and not Brooklyn, where this film took place. However, I put this on the Discussion page in case anyone has objections before the link is removed. 3dsfan (talk) 03:29, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
- I've no objections whatsoever. I considered removing it myself but felt if it was truly unnecessary someone would tackle it themselves. I don't believe the meteorite theory had been proven at the time of writing (or filming) so that link is just a retroactive change. Jackal Killer (talk) 08:55, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
- I also support the removal of the link. Also, this should not be linked per WP:EGG. Darth Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 12:37, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
List of roles
Shigeru Miyamoto, Mario's creator, stated, "[In] the end, it was a very fun project that they put a lot of effort into," but also said, "The one thing that I still have some regrets about is that the movie may have tried to get a little too close to what the Mario Bros. video games were. And in that sense, it became a movie that was about a video game, rather than being an entertaining movie in and of itself."
I recall reading somewhere that Miyamoto might have actually been talking about the animated film that was released in Japan. He might have been asked about the live action film, but the animated film was probably more familiar to him and so he likely misunderstood the question. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I read this. - furrykef (Talk at me) 18:27, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Now I can't fix the grammar and plot mistakes in this article either? Geez.
I mean, I fixed them a couple of days ago, but then, the article reverted back to the way it was before I fixed it. It's like, the article asks for someone to fix it, but when it rejects my edits, that, my friends, is hypocrisy at work.
