Our review of the third Superman film in the Christopher Reeve/Pierre Spengler/Ilya Salkind era, and the first 100% directed by Richard Lester. Because the Salkind’s owed him a film. So he ruined Superman III to get back at them. Or the WB ruined it by insisting they toss out their first script and cast Richard Pryor instead. Whichever happened, the results will still drive you to drink. Just like Superman on synthetic kryptontie.
