There was way too much filler, too much of the grandma and uninteresting trials and tribulations of Peter chasing M.J. If you're the emotional type that gets teary-eyed at movies, I guess this was for you. I'm surprised that the 95% male population in here enjoyed it so much :-P

I'd have rather seen "The English Patient"........or even "Sack Lunch" for that matter. Biggest waste of $10 I can recall.......and I saw "Mean Girls" not too long ago............


this is the only response I would expect from LBJackal. lol. Anyways of course the movie is going to be on the corny side, everyone forgets it is a superhero movie, and superhero stories/movies are corny.

Spider-Man 2 was EVERYTHING I hoped it would be, AWESOME. It was wroth being one of the first to see it at midnite the night before it came out.

If you didn't know Im a spiderman fan, well, you should have, after reading my signature for the last 6 months.

It was poorly written. Cheesy, with glaring plot holes. The dialoge sounded like it was written by a 10 year old.


What is up with the scene changes. It seemed like they guys in the editing boothe wanted to see hom many different swipes they could use.

i give it one and 1/2 stars.

There we go, at least somebody didn't think it was the greatest movie ever. LOL. Just because it was big budget with a few special effects (I admit, the guy with 4 arms was cool) doesn't mean it's a good movie.

X-Men, X2 and The Punisher were much more entertaining. This movie was similar to "Under the Tuscan Sun" with a few action scenes and a bunch of corny lines.

X-Men X2 and espiecally the Punisher all lacked likable, well- developed characters. Those action sequences were less entertaining and the direction was a lot less organized (I do admit, I normally like the director who did the X Men movies . Bryan Singer I believe? Directed Usual Suspects!!) Spiderman 2 is no Oscar winner, however it is certianly worth your $8.50. Comparing it to Under the Tuscan Sun (2 hours of hell) is ludacris.

On a slightly seperate note, I spent the last 8 hours playing the video game Spiderman 2. Great, great, fun.

Yeah, Under the Tuscan Sun was a waste of 2 hours, which is why I compared it to Spider-Man 2. I can see if people like the dramatic, love story type of movies, then both films could be appealing. I'll paraphrase Peter Griffin on how Under the Tuscan Sun was though: "Destiny. It was her destiny. There, I just saved you 2 long boobless hours." :-D

At least Spider-Man 2 had the requisite wet t-shirt scene with Kirsten Dunst. If she wasn't so weird looking it might have made the movie worth the $10 I paid :-b

Lol, yeah I'm not sure what was going on with Kirsten Dunst, but I found her strangley unattractive.

And is Under the Tuscan Sun the first movie Diane Lane did keep her bra on?!

Not that there's anything wrong with that. :-b
