Superman III Movie Review

The third entry in the Superman series stands as one of history's most infamous cautionary tales about the danges of computers, and it's also one of the silliest. Not only does Richard Pryor engineer a way to steal all the rounded half-pennies from his employer, he manages to synthesize kryptonite (using tobacco tar as an ingredient where needed) and design an artificial intelligence system that "wants to live." No Lex Luthor this time out; Pryor's employer is Robert Vaughn -- a corporate mogul trying to use technology to cause world disasters and profit from them. There's barely any Lois Lane either -- she's on vacation -- so Superman/Clark Kent finds himself with his highschool crush, Lana Lang (Annette O'Toole), who is about twice as much fun as Margot Kidder ever was.
