* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter:
** With [[AdvertisedExtra very little screentime]] and a [[WTHCastingAgency questionable casting choice]], the general consensus is that Venom was completely wasted when a whole separate movie could have been made around him.
*** In fact, this ''was'' originally the plan, for the movie to be released in two parts, with the second one being very Venom-focused, but the studio didn't allow it. This ends up being [[HilariousInHindsight hilarious]] (or [[HarsherInHindsight harsher]]) in hindsight due to the fact that two-part movies would become in vogue just a few years later after the ''Harry Potter'' series did it.
** Also Creator/BryceDallasHoward as Gwen Stacy, who could have left more of an impression and had more of a relationship with Peter and MJ had it not been for all the other characters and their arcs fighting for screentime.

TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: This ended up happening to multiple characters due to the producers trying to cram in too many characters in a limited screen time.

* CriticalDissonance: While it actually ''was'' divisive among critics, you'd be surprised that it has a 63% on Rotten Tomatoes, which means that most reviews were mixed to positive. However, based on the hate it gets from fans, you'd think its score would be much, ''much'' lower.

Added DiffLines:

* RonTheDeathEater: Although being intentionally written to make bad and selfish choices, Mary Jane tends to get far more grief from certain fans [[DoubleStandard even though literally every other character in the movie also makes bad and selfish choices.]] The whole point of the movie was that everyone's a sinner and that they must resolve to do better and forgive themselves and others, or else be destroyed by their own negative emotions.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The ''Editor's Cut'' version of the movie outright cuts out the much-panned scene where Harry's butler convinces Harry to help Peter save MJ by [[WhatAnIdiot only just NOW revealing to him that he had proof of Norman dying by his own hand]], and instead has Harry make his choice all by himself, making his role in the film's climax much more powerful.

* BrokenBase: Want to start an argument? Ask if Peter's behavior under the symbiote's influence is bad or brilliant. Defenders claim that he's ''supposed'' to be super lame and just thinks he's being awesome, while detractors either take it at face value and/or cite the fact that the majority of characters respond positively to Peter's change like he's actually being cool.

The editor's cut is also controversial in this regard as some hate that the "Emo Peter" montage was kept in at all, while others appreciate that it was given a darker context since it now ''immediately'' follows [[spoiler: Peter throwing a bomb at Harry and hideously scarring him]], emphasizing his sociopathic callousness as much as his geekiness.

* HarsherInHindsight: A major part of the film is Peter planning to proposing to Mary Jane. This was also released in the same year as ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'', which ended the Peter/MJ marriage.

* WTHCastingAgency: General consensus is that Topher Grace wasn't a very good cast for Venom. WordOfGod says that Topher was cast because Raimi enjoyed his acting and thought he'd make a perfect [[EvilCounterpart Anti-Peter Parker.]] Basically, the casting was more about this version of Eddie Brock than it was about Venom -- which didn't work out for them in terms of fan reaction, as most fans either don't really care about the Eddie Brock part of Venom, or think that the usual version of Eddie Brock is much more interesting, at least after his CharacterDevelopment, and in the animated adaptations.
