Super Mario Rescues The Princess

We're all familiar with stories about damsels in distress getting rescued by hyper-masculine heroes. But Super Mario Rescues The Princess — a spoof of the many Super Mario video games created by Nintendo's legendary game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto — updates this formulaic fairy tale for the digital age. We don't want to spoil the ending for you, but given that it was created by Seth MacFarlane, the Emmy-winning smart aleck who created Fox's Family Guy, let's just say that things don't go quite as planned. Anyone in the dating trenches today will be able to relate, and everyone else can just have a good laugh.
