Super Mario Bros.
The first video game film, Super Mario Bros. also broke ground by showing how not to handle a big-screen adaptation. It had plenty of big name talent, including Bob Hoskins, Dennis Hopper and John Leguizamo. Unfortunately, that's all it had. Hopper played King Koopa, who was human instead of a reptile for some reason. Hoskins and Leguizamo, neither of who look even vaguely Italian, played the titular brothers. When asked what the worst thing he ever worked on in his career was, Hoskins replied, "The worst thing I ever did? Super Mario Brothers. It was a fuckin' nightmare." That pretty much sums up what it was like watching it as well.
