Out of all the Superman movies, III is the only one I haven't seen since I was a kid. But after listening to this episode, I decided to watch it again. And now I know why I haven't seen this since I was a kid. This movie epitomizes why I despise Richard Lester's directing on the Superman films -- if you want to direct slapstick comedy, stay away from Superman. It's as if he got all his ideas from watching a Looney Tunes marathon.
Superman IV at least had the saving grace of bringing back Lex Luthor, whom Webster is a very, very poor substitute for.
