Superman III

Stupidity: When Clark is fighting Evil Superman in the junkyard, Evil Superman looks up and sees a huge magnet directly over Clark and Clark notices it too. Evil Superman uses his heat vision on the chain causing it to heat up then break dropping the magnet on Clark. Clark had plenty of time to get out of the way before the chain snapped but he just stands there when it finally falls on him.

Stupidity: When Superman gets to the bridge after the truck falls off, he asks the firemen if there's anything he can do. They responds that there's really nothing as he got there too late. How about asking him if he could get the truck out of the water. That would have been a help.

Other mistake: Towards the end of the movie, when Superman drops Gus off at the coal mine, Gus begins talking with the coal miners about him and Superman. He then rips open his shirt (as if he had a Superman costume on underneath). How did Gus know that Clark Kent tore his shirt like that in order to change into Superman, or keeps his suit under his clothes at all? The only people who know this fact are the ones who have seen the transformation from Clark to Superman, i.e. the audience.
