The main actors in the film share a connection to the DC Comics character Superman in both film and television. Christopher Reeve played the character in Superman I-IV (1978-1987), while George Newbern played him in )"Justice League" (2001)_, (Reeve was also influenced by Cary Grant for his role in His Girl Friday (1940), of which this film is a remake). Burt Reynolds was considered for the title role in Superman (1978), while Ned Beatty co-starred with Reeve in that film as Otis, Lex Luthor's henchman. Interestingly, Kathleen Turner was one of many actresses considered for the role of Vicki Vale in Batman (1989), a movie based on another DC Comics character. See more »

I thought the updating of the Front Page to the electronic era was surprisingly relevant and poignant. Henry Gibson is a standout in an excellent cast. The laughs and stories are updated for modern audiences and lose surprisingly little in the translation. The chemistry between Reynolds and Turner is pretty hot. All in all quite entertaining.
