And the sequel wouldn't sell that good if they called it Teenage Sex Comedy with Same Characters as American Pie.

I guess you wouldn't like either!

Thanks for your help in helping me "understand" POTA 2001, but It still isn't as good as the original.  frown My dad figures that the whole ending was just a setup for sequels. While we're on the topic, isn't American Pie the same basic movie as "Animal House?" (the original teen sex comedy)

It doesn't work. Animal House was about sex, but it was also about pranks and food fights and giving horses heart attacks.

i just bought the original planet of the aps on dvd yesterday!!! man, i haven't seen this movie in it's original (means undubbed) version!!! this is really one of my favorite movies. i remember when i was a child and saw it for the first time...i loved it from the first moment on. i even had planet of the apes comics (i think marvel did publish it) but sadly i lost them (i wish i hadn't). austrian tv had the whole serie running once. every friday night one movie!!!! that was sooooo great, although i loved parts 1 -
3 i enjoyed part 4 + 5 not so deeply but anyway....the original still rocks!!!!!! at this weekend i will go to see the new version of planet....i hope it will be half as good as the original (what i really doubt).

I mean, why did Super Mario Brothers suck? Because it's about a couple of semi-italian plumbers who get sucked through a pipe into a mushroom kingdom, where they fight weird villians and rescue a princess. Just like the game!

Actually, I thought the movie failed because it strayed away from the game. First, Bowser is a turtle, not a dino. His henchmen were not his cousins but his kids in the game. Goombas were not these huge things with small heads. The B-bombs(sp?) were not tiny little wind-up toys. They DID NOT get sucked through a pipe in the movie, they used a  piece of meteorite rock to go through a wall into the other dimension. (They should used a pipe to stay true to the game) They didn't put on their trademark clothing until the movie was almost over. The princess went for Luigi instead of Mario (this was the only screwup I could stand) They also got her name wrong, but oh well.

So you see, because the movie was nothing LIKE the game, it failed, IMO smile

"Eight Legged Freaks" ?

Sounds like a crap B-movie to me.

Allen, be serious. I know the movie strayed from the game, but do you really following the game's plot would make it better?

What's the difference between going through a wall to get to another dimension and going through a huge green pipe to get to another dimension? So what if Bowser is a dinosaur instead of a goofy turtle/dragon? The videogame is silly...there's no way to make a good movie out of that.

Yeah, there waas no way to make a good movie out of the game. Unfortunately, they went ahead and made a movie anyway.

Hey, I never claimed it would make it better, I just said it wasn't like the video game. You said it was and that's why it sucked. I just set you straight. The ONLY true way that movie could work is if nobody had played the game. They did though and I know it wasn't what people were expecting. Yeah, it probably still would have sucked if they had gotten it right, but we'll never know, will we?  wink

the Mario games are about a plumber who eats mushrooms and flowers to grow big and attack turtles to try and save a princess from some kind of giant super turtle while he travels thorugh pipes.
