Finally watched the movie, and I completely understand this score. The movie is only mildly entertaining if you are not a Mario brothers player. It relies way too heavily on nostalgia, and a lot of the things that happen in the movie mean very little to me out of context. So given that the core audience consists of people who played the game (which is a massive swath of people, admittedly), or parents looking for something for their children to watch it makes sense that the audience score is so high. But when solely judged on it's merit as a movie it falls short.
