Satirizing Superman IV: The Quest for Peace is like throwing a grenade down a gofer hole: too easy. Unquestionably the worst installment of the original Superman movies with Christopher Reeve, the real question was… how could anything get this bad?
As the folks at Screen Junkies point out, this film killed the original franchise. It was the Batman and Robin of the 1980s. I can’t help but cringe when watching this edition of Honest Trailers. This has got to be one of the corniest movies ever (though, I’m pretty sure Hot Ticket To Hawaii still reigns supreme in that category).
Let’s just say that in Man of Steel, Superman has come a long way.
