Spider Man is a sarcastic smartass. Parker is not.
The quips as Spider Man didn't bother me. The fact that the character of Peter Parker was a selfish dick from beginning to end did. He undergoes no growth. He's Spider Man because it makes him feel cool and gives him the confidence to bag Gwen. Uncle Ben dying has no lasting effect. Capt Stacy dies for him, asks him to stay away from has daughter and he reneges on that promise almost immediately.

^^^ I agree so far.
But in terms of overall quality, I'm leaning toward this one. I'm watching it as I type this. His character as Parker just doesn't really fit. Hippy nerd genius and a smartass throughout, lol. But yeah.. it's picking up

I finally saw the movie:
1. People are way too hard on Spider-Man 3. All because Toby McGuire went all emo for 15 minutes.
2. McGuire was more like able as Parker. He didn't seem as smart as the Garfield portrayal though. I didn't like ASM overload smartass remarks. Reminds me why I want to smack all these spoiled brats nowadays. That hipster persona killed it for me.
3. ASM Spider-Man was more realistic, especially with the webbing but still far fetched. I like their twist on it though. More believable.
4. I thought Spider-Man had recovery and healing qualities? Dude gets a 2 inch deep slash on his chest and he's all like "I don't treat the wound cause it makes me look like a beleaguered super hero".
