SUPER MARIO BROS.: Extended Cut Now Streaming Online

They Should Have Called it the "Corpulent, Very Corpulent Cut"

An extended cut of the 90s Super Mario Bros. movie is now streaming online. Entitled “The Morton Jankel Cut”, the new version extends the original 104 minutes runtime to 125 minutes. The never-before-seen footage includes a new subplot, Koopa executing a henchman, and Igg & Spike performing a rap at the end. Also, scenes throughout the movie have been re-edited and extended.

The film’s listing on the Internet Archive features a breakdown of the details behind the restoration.

Brooklyn plumbers Mario and Luigi get the shock of their lives when they discover a parallel world populated by the intelligent descendants of dinosaurs. It seems they weren’t destroyed by a meteor millions of years ago but hurled into another dimension and, now, they have plans to rule our world. It’s up to our unlikely heroes to battle the evil King Koopa and his Goomba guards, free the beautiful Princess Daisy and save mankind in this adventure of a lifetime.

The film sports a 24% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes. The Critics Consensus: Despite flashy sets and special effects, Super Mario Bros. is too light on story and substance to be anything more than a novelty.
