First of all, you HAVE to understand it's tongue in cheek. (Steven DeSouza knows tongue-in-cheek, from the first Die Hard, and even the Stallone Judge Dredd.) And good intentional tongue-in-cheek is hard to do, outside of Flash Gordon or the Batman TV series.
Then, you have to have played the game--DeSouza said in the disk commentary that he loved to play the arcade game with his little 'un, and it's one of the few video game movies where the director actually appears to have ever seen the game in his life. That HELPS, especially when nearly every speaking character in the movie is one of the playable characters. When the characters actually spout their video game lines before the big battle, it just shows what was missing from the Super Mario Bros. movie.
JCVD is the only one taking it with dramatic seriousness, but that's part of the fun, while--as you can see in the linked clip--Raul Julia plays M. Bison like Gomez Addams plotting world domination, and a pre-SHIELD Ming-Na takes on Chun Li without a bit of irony.\

...It's just fun, is all.

I had low expectations but that was pretty amusing.
