Hoskins slams Super Mario Directors

BobHoskins.jpgBob Hoskins has come out guns blazing about that long past embarrassment of a film Super Mario Bros. He's extremely harsh about the film and in particular the Directors.

This film was perhaps the forerunner of the practice of Hollywood to adapt videogames into disastrous films, and it didn't help that they chose an incredibly weak plotted videogame as it was.

Bob Hoskins, through Digital Spy, has said that this was the worst thing that he ever did, and I don't think that anyone is going to disagree.

“It was a nightmare. It had a husband-and-wife directing, whose arrogance had been mistaken for talent.

After so many weeks their own agent told them to get off the set. F*****g nightmare. F*****g idiots. That's the nature of the game, the whole experience was a nightmare.”

Wow, well he didn't really pull any punches on that. I have to give the couple who directed Super Mario Bros. Some credit, not for that film, but for D.O.A. which Annabel Jankel and Rocky Morton both directed well.

Hoskins is right though, Super Mario Bros. was a disaster and an embarrassment.
