Your eight bucks is in another castleIt was almost impossible to grow up in the 90s without watching the abomination that was the Super Mario Bros. movie. Being little, it wasn’t so bad. However, at some point you grow up, and you realize that your favorite childhood movie was nothing more than garbage.

I’m sure many of you feel the same way. So does Bob Hoskins, whose biggest regret was starring as everyone’s favorite plumber. In a recent interview with Guardian, Bob revealed some startling information about his feelings towards his role as Mario.

“What is the worst job you’ve done?

Super Mario Brothers.

What has been your biggest disappointment?

Super Mario Brothers.

If you could edit your past, what would you change?

I wouldn’t do Super Mario Brothers.”

There you have it. I don’t blame him though. The film was on Siskel and Ebert’s top 10 worst films list of 1993 and has an underwhelming score of 13% on Rotten Tomatoes. Even Miyamoto himself has regrets involving the film. However, I will say that it’s one of the better video game based movies out there. Definitely better than anything that director Uwe Boll has ever crapped out of his mind. Check out the full interview over at the Guardian.

Also feel free to leave some comments on your feelings towards the film and any other video game related movie.
