Clark Kent return to Smallville to find out that Anette O'Toole is a hot Lana Lang. Seeing Christopher Reeve kicking and punching the shit out of himself as his evil double is the best memory from this film that is ruined by trying to be more of a Richard Pryor comedy movie and have Superman added as an afterthought. The film really drags the franchise in the sewer.
One of the most underrated of superhero movies. Doubling as a parody of free market libertarianism and a sort of inner self-reflection on the duality of its hero, Superman III, for some reason, strikes a nerve towards fans of the character. That's unfortunate because the film is of the same quality and confidence of its predecessors. Call it the OG Spider-Man 3.
Okay the movie is corny but Richard Pryor really was funny in this film. And I so much liked Christopher Reeve. Strange to think they are both gone. Pryor had MS and died of a heart attack. Reeve Reeve became a quadriplegic after being thrown from a horse and later died from cardiac arrest.
