Is “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” appropriate for young kids?
The violence in “The Super Mario Bros. Move” is mild and cartoonish.

There is one scene where Bowser incinerates a koopa trooper with his fiery breath who becomes a skeleton koopa.
The scenes where Luigi finds himself in a haunted mansion and dangling precariously over a pit of lava may upset very young viewers.
There is no adult content, though Bowser has an intense, unreciprocated love for Princess Peach. There is no profanity.
