Faye Dunaway and Peter O'Toole star in this 80s box office bomb. Kara Zor-El (Helen Slater) escapes the lost Kryptonian Argo City to retrieve the precious power source which she carelessly sucked out of the airlock. She emerges on earth as Supergirl, where she is pursued by hunks, an evil witch, and Lois Lane's teenage sister who kind of resembles Rachel Dratch.
Despite a near rape scene, Supergirl handles gender politics surprisingly well. It's possibly because of her willingness to sit down with shirtless teenagers at the local Popeye's, or humbling experience as a C student in Argo City. Overall an enjoyable movie despite making very little money. At the very least better than Superman IV.
