Richard Pryor and Annette O'Toole (Smallville) join the familiar cast of Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, and Margot Kidder for this blockbuster third installment in the wildly popular film series. In this outing, which takes much more of a comic tone than its predecessors, Superman battles a super computer and the evil businessman exploiting it. As Clark Kent (Reeve) and Lana Lang (O'Toole) become reacquainted at their high school reunion, a megalomaniac tycoon hatches a plan to use the super computer to achieve world domination--and only Superman can stop it. At one point, the scientist's meddling with Kryptonite causes Superman to split into two people, one good and one evil!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: When not overusing sight gags, slapstick, and Richard Pryor, Superman III resorts to plot points rehashed from the previous Superman flicks.

Outdated superhero movie may interest older kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Richard Pryor's Gus Gorman is as much of the main character in this movie as Superman. Therefore, expect some of the "loveable" con-artist antics that made Pryor famous in his R-rated films, including drunkenness, theft, avoiding honest work, and even letting a swear word slip out. It's all suitably rendered PG-mild, though.
