Super Mario Bros.

Trivia: The portable devo guns Mario & Luigi use to turn Koopa into slime are actually Super Scopes, (used in the Super Nintendo Game "Super Scope"). They're kind of the Super Nintendo version of the Nintendo Zapper from "Duck Hunt" for NES (Nintendo Entertainment System").

Trivia: A rather odd piece of trivia. The entire plot of the movie was original, and follows none of the video-games in the series. The actual games take place in the "Mushroom Kingdom", a fantasy world filled with fantasy characters. But for some reason, the movie takes place in our world, with alternate universes and sci-fi creatures. Many fans of the games were dissapointed that the filmmakers did no justice at all to the games.

Trivia: Years after the film came out, co-star Dennis Hopper's son asked his dad why he was in the film, given its notoriously poor reception from critics and fans. Hopper, a working actor, responded with "So we could have money to buy you shoes." His son then quipped back "Dad, I don't need shoes that badly."

Trivia: Early drafts of the script reportedly followed the storyline of the video-games more closely, but for whatever reason these drafts were passed on to give the film an original storyline.
