|AS SUPERMAN RETURNS FOR THE
UMTEENTH TIME, STUPIDMAN JUST
FIGURED OUT HOW TO GET HERE!
As Superman triumphantly returns, there is another superhero about
to blast off on-screen! Yes, Superman’s hilarious alter ego,
STUPIDMAN, in a parody of the legendary hero’s comic book, TV and
From Los Angeles-based independent filmmaker Jim Polivka (Last
Man Out), STUPIDMAN ambitiously traces Stupidman’s beginnings
from his dramatic escape off the doomed planet Crapton to his arrival
on Earth where as Kent Clark, his unusual talents are soon exploited
by his cash-strapped new parents. He eventually gets a job at the
curiously outdated Evening Moon newspaper where he is easily
misled by the frustrated, career-driven reporter Lotus Lamé and her
geeky, sexually ambiguous sidekick, Jamie Oldstone. When insane/evil
environmentalist Lax A. Tiv has his bumbling stooges Nipps LeTrog
and Clyde Pigsqueal kidnap Managing Editor Barry Black, Clark’s
rescue attempt is delayed by his elaborate costume change and a
flirtatious flight with Lotus Lamé. Can the stupidest man on the planet
save the most hard-boiled editor in Megalopolis…and how long can he
possibly protect his secret identity?
Full of antiquated special effects, lots of B-grade action and tongue-in-
cheek film and cultural references, STUPIDMAN is a refreshing breath
of fresh air!
