* {{Narm}}:
** When Gwen falls to her death, the web Spider-Man throws to catch her takes the shape of a human hand.
** The chanting in the song "My Enemy" can get a little ridiculous, mainly since one of the lines being repeated is "he hates on me".
*** Becomes almost ten times as narmy when you notice, like [[WebVideo/YourMovieSucksDotOrg Your Movie Sucks]] did in his review, that the line [[{{Mondegreen}} sounds hilariously close]] to [[SuperMarioBrothers "He hates-a me."]]
** The villains. Rhino is an [[LargeHam intentional]] [[NarmCharm case]], but both Electro and the Green Goblin are supposed to be serious. Turns out it's quite difficult to take a guy that looks like [[Film/BatmanAndRobin Batman & Robin's Mr. Freeze]] or a guy whose makeup resembles Warwick Davis' ''Film/{{Leprechaun}}'' very seriously. Though admittedly, they do have their intimidating moments as well.
** Electro's first time in Ravencroft -- he's tortured by a German scientist named ''Kafka'' who puts on classical music before the experiment. If that sounds silly already, wait until you hear [[ClicheStorm the dialogue]].
** In the beginning of the film, Max Dillon is so stereotypically nerdy that he actually becomes a more ''subtle'' character once he turns into a glowing super-villain that shoots lightning bolts.
** When Max is getting turned into Electro, there's a big close-up of the electricity fixing the gap in his front teeth. What was the point of that?!
** While the original trilogy had Uncle Ben appear posthumously and actually have a role in Peter's development, this movie does so with Creator/DenisLeary as George Stacy...just standing there and staring. Or sitting in a squad car...and staring. This is the source of the "always watching" MemeticMutation above.
** Harry Osborn's {{Wangst}}y behavior during his attempts to appear sympathetic, combined with the fact that he's sporting a haircut akin to that of Peter's emo persona from the infamous ''Film/SpiderMan3'' movie, make him come off overly dramatic to some.
--> Harry: You're a fraud, Spider-Man!
** Gwen's graduation speech is criticized for basically telegraphing her death at the end of the movie with absolutely no subtlety whatsoever.

* OlderThanTheyThink: One of the things Beenox have hyped up is the improved web-swinging mechanics from the previous game, frequently pointing to the fact that the webs Spidey swings on are attached to buildings this time around... Something that was in ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2'', ''[[VideoGame/SpiderManTrilogy Spider-Man 3]]'', and ''VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan''.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Harry Osborn is either a sympathetic individual trying to find a cure for his disease or an entitled angst-wanking and arrogant creep. [[spoiler:His "Strawman Has A Point" moment detailed below helps those in favor of the former interpretation, and those in favor of the latter cite the murder of Gwen Stacy as proof of the other. Even before then, his default response to learning that Peter cannot help him use his DNA to make a cure is to demand a price and lash out at him.]]

His "everybody wants my money" line lends a bit more credence to the LonelyRichKid interpretation.]]



* HoYay: Peter and Harry certainly give off a certain vibe. The scene with Harry and Gwen in the elevator makes Harry look like a jealous romantic rival.

The whole plot, really-[[BelligerentSexualTension the affectionate jibes]], the childhood-friends reunion, the tragic illness-none of it would be out of place in a romantic dramedy. At least, [[spoiler: up until Harry goes full DIY trying to cure himself and attempts to kill Peter.]]
** On the bad guys' side, Max's IJustWantToBeLoved tendencies give a bit of this vibe to his and Harry's relationship. Max's awed face when Harry tells him he needs him....
--->'''Harry:''' I need you! Please! [[WhamLine I know what it's like]] [[BirdsOfAFeather to be thrown away!]] ''Please'', Max!

* CriticalDissonance: This movie has had the least warm reception from critics out of both ''Spider-Man'' series, but audiences seem to at least like the movie, though not unanimously (just like the ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' sequels).

to:

* AuthorsSavingThrow:AuthorsSavingThrow: Peter Parker's reason to break his promise.



** Nerdy Peter Parker vs Teenage handsome Peter Parker.



* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: As stated in AuthorsSavingThrow, many people who disliked this version of Peter Parker in the previous movie have come to like him in this one. In general, the character is significantly more responsible for his actions, whereas in the first movie he seemed to be [[DesignatedHero more reckless and selfish]].
