Factual error: The supercomputer has the British spelling 'Defence' written on it, instead of the American 'Defense', even though the movie takes place in the USA.

Factual error: When Richard Pryor is working his job in the computer room his boss walks up behind him and is amazed at a program that Pryor has written. The boss asks how he did it; Pryor answers that even he doesn't know. Look at the computer screen - Pryor's amazing computer program is just a bunch of worthless print commands that print sentences onto the computer screen; it serves no real function whatsoever.

Factual error: At the start we see a blind man and his guide dog, who runs off after a smaller dog. Guide dogs are specifically trained not to do this before being given to their owner.

Question: How come Superman is so nice to Gus at the end? He was working with the baddies, he created a computer and the Kryptonite to kill Superman! Yet Superman is totally cool and even asks the coal miners to give Gus a job. Did I miss something?

Answer: The only reason that Gus was working with Ross, Vera and Lorelei was because he stole money from the company he worked at. To avoid going to prison, Gus was forced to do anything that they wanted. After realizing that his computer was designed to do anything it was ordered to, including killing Superman, Gus removed a small screw which shut down the power momentarily but, after the computer brought itself back online, Gus attempted to destroy it with an axe to save Superman. Superman saw this and realised he was wrong about Gus and after the computer was destroyed decided to help Gus find a job.

That makes sense, thank you! Been bugging me for years.
