Still Fun
24 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you look past the low budget, terrible visual effects, casting errors and a very uneven score, you might enjoy this tele-movie based on the failed Broadway show.

At least everyone on screen appears to be having a great time, especially Loretta Swit who steals the show with two great musical numbers.

The plot follows the attempts of mad doctor Abner Sedgewick and reporter Max Mencken to destroy Superman for comic reasons. Respected actor David Wayne fails as a song and dance man but shines as Swdgewick.

Looking as if it was filmed in a garage the production features amateurish choreography lame humor.

Still, I really enjoyed the program as a kid in the 70s and after seeing it again recently, as bad as it is, it still leaves a smile.
