The producers of The Super Mario Bros. Movie knew what they were doing when they decided to release the film over the Easter holiday weekend. And their genius planning has resulted in both Mario and Luigi taking in a huge payday at the box office with a whopping $205 million during its US premiere, despite its bad reviews (it’s certified Rotten!). So apparently, Chris Pratt wasn’t lying when he said he was going to do Mario’s character justice. Maybe all of his films should be animated from now on since that’s the only way many can tolerate him.

Yes, Sex & The City 3 will never happen but who needs that crap when we have Kim Cattrall getting the tingles in her Princess Peach over Super Mario.
