I believed Christopher Reeve was Superman, though - Clark Kent, not so much.
I've always felt the opposite. Reeve was a mediocre Superman, but the definitive Clark Kent.
Nope. His Kent was a caricature, so broadly played as to verge on slapstick in some scenes.

I know that works well within the "Tarantino theory" of Supe's alter ego, but I don't buy that either.

I suppose it could be somewhat justified as part of the uneven comedic tone of the Reeve Superman movies.
I think somewhere in between Reeve's portrayal of Clark Kent and George Reeves' portrayal of Clark Kent would be a good balance. George Reeves played Kent as a pretty tough guy.
