Other mistake: In the rest of Superman movies, whenever he used his eyes to do some trick a beam came out. In this (really cheap) movie the beam is gone.

Other mistake: When Superman breaks his ice cage and makes it explode, a long black rubber band flies away. Where the heck did that come from?

Other mistake: When Lenny has the prison guards locked in the car and is putting the top up, the steering wheel is spinning but the front wheels aren't moving. The amount of revolutions of the steering wheel is mechanically impossible also.

More quotes from Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Trivia: Near the end of the film, Superman gives a press conference in front of a bluish mirror-glass building which is meant to be the Daily Planet skyscraper in Metropolis (which we all know is New York, sort of). The shot is framed so you can only see the bottom of the building - necessary as it is only about 3 floors high, and is in fact the railway station in Milton keynes, England, about 400 yards from where I work. Even the crowd have a vaguely British look about them - presumably passers-by were recruited and stood there in their own clothes (this would matter less now - Brits look more American than they did in the Eighties).
