The internet’s response to the trailer for Movie Super Mario Bros. pretty good…except for Chris Pratt’s much-awaited debut as Mario. The reaction to his voice choice (that is, Chris Pratt with a little Brooklyn accent), was at best slightly warm, not helped by Pratt’s own warm introduction to the trailer. in which he says that he likes to stomp Koopas in video games – that’s impossible, by the way; they don’t have Koopas in arcade games, actually.
But it turns out a lot of people out there think Mario is like… Linda Belcher from Bob’s Burgers.
You can’t hear it, be warned:
We already know what you will say. “It’s just a line!” “Pratt sounds GREAT, you just have a slow news day.” “You just have to jump into the gang that hates Pratt to get the clicks.” “I WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THE STUPID MARIO MOVIE.” Listen, we get it. A line that sounds a bit like another cartoon character? Not the worst in the world. And Pratt maybe other sounds in the rest of the movie. maybe.
But what if we had to watch an hour and a half of Linda Belcher inside a short, fat plumber? We’re going to have a very weird time at the cinema.
What do you think? Does this spoil Mario for you? Is Pratt’s voice okay? Are you? than have the ability to watch the movie now? Let us know in the comments section.
