Superman III

Deliberate mistake: There is no way for Gus to jump over the terrace with the skis since there's no ramp. He would have crashed against the wall and the flower pots we saw in a previous shot.

Deliberate mistake: When a man bumps into pole, it sounds as if a truck had crashed (which makes it funnier), but in reality he just bumped his chest.

Character mistake: When Richard Pryor is on the computer attempting to formulate Kryptonite to kill Superman, a screen shot of the computer shows the word "recieved." The I and E should be the other way around. (00:59:25)

Question: In the original Superman television series, Superman created a duplicate of himself so that he could be in two places at once. However, as one went to pull the bars out of the wall, he had to have the other help, as the strength of one was half that of the original. That said, how is it that both Clark and Evil Superman have the same strength of the whole being after being split?

Chosen answer: The effects of Red Kryptonite on Superman are always random and unpredictable. In the comics, the effect lasts 24 hours, however, for a film, they last as long as the writer needs them to. This time, it copied all of his powers as well to make the Evil Superman.
