Not to disparage Amy Adams but Isla Fisher is much better looking, but at a quick glance they do both have similar-looking features.
I agree, however, I think Adams has the Lois look and Fisher does not.

Wow, then everybody else who read with him must have been terrible. I didn't think they had any chemistry whatsoever, one of the biggest problems with that movie.
Well it was hard to really get a good feel for their chemistry, because she was supposed to be so bitter at him for leaving. And the tone of the whole movie was so somber and reflective as well.

But I thought their scene on the roof was well-played, and by the end of their flight I had no trouble believing they had some kind of history together.

Bosworth as Lois Lane was fine for the situation the film had Lois in. The problem was that the she (and Routh, for that matter) appeared way too young (because she was) for the backstory to successfully work. If it was an origin film, I'd think she wouldn't have been viewed as harshly. Just my two cents.

She was far too young for the role and I enjoyed Superman Returns overall.

Didn't have a problem with Bosworth, relative to most of the other Lois Lanes - none of them have been great. I'm fond of Phyllis Coates and Noelle Neill, of course; they're "grandmothered in."

Benicio Del Toro is out of the movie just as fast as we found out he was in. Now who are they going to get to play Khan?

That makes me wonder, if they had equal resources and pitted against each other who would win, Khan or Luthor?

Yeah it was a stretch, but I didn't really have a problem accepting that they were meant to be older in SR than they might have appeared.

Hell, Routh and Bosworth actually ARE 5 years older now (32 and 28), and they don't look any different whatsoever from how they did back then.

Those two just do not freakin age.
