snooozer....
17 November 2008 | by eduardo10075See all my reviews

Wouldn't go out of my way to find this one...okay for late-night viewing if you channel-surf to it.

I think Morgan Spurlock dresses up in the Superman suit in the telephone booth to introduce the film, but that also falls a bit flat.

The characters and their stories just aren't that exceptional or interesting. The small-town history of the Wonder Woman character is a perfect example. Whether Christopher Dennis is really Sandy Dennis's son is somewhat interesting, but left unresolved.

Also interesting is that Christopher Dennis certainly doesn't have the Superman physique. Margot Kidder mentions this in a roundabout way. He should wear a padded-suit-image a 98lb weakling instead!

His obsession with Superman reminded me of another film called Cinemania (2002 Angela Christlieb) about NY city film obsessives.
