          obviously you arent familiar with todays trends and obviously you didnt see he made a gadget that freakin locked his door from his computer. what doesnt make him a nerd in that movie? and dont say looks because thats ignorant and theres a lot of good looking kids that dont have girlfriends or boyfriends because people think theyre weird.

                    17 year-old schoolgirls find rejection much harder to deal with than their father's death, a death which has been at least partly caused by the subject of their rejection.

                                Use a real 17 year-old actor instead of a 27 year-old one.

                                  At least Tobey Maguire was more convincing as an outcast than Garfield who I think was too attractive looking to be an outcast. It's high school. Everyone judges by plain appearance. If your not attractive looking, you'll have no friends. If you look attractive, but a jerk, you'll have tons of friends still. It's how high school works.

                                  not to mention that Andrew Garfield looks more like a 17 year old than Tobey Maguire did...

                                  Tobey Maguire was also 27 in Spiderman, 2002.

                                  If you secretly venture into a mysterious, highly off-limits laboratory and see a room with various, probably experimental spiders that are all hanging around on a strange contraption - not under any sort of protective container or wall of glass - by all means, just walk in.

                                    Comic book writers from the 1960s know that if you are bitten by a radioactive spider you have super human strength, super senses, super reflexes, super agility, and can stick to walls, but shooting webs from your wrists is just bullshit.

                                      Parker manages to design, purchase, and make a superhero costume that would make the military jealous.

                                          A bully can beat the ever-loving heck out of Peter Parker in front of a bunch of classmates and get away with it, but Peter can humiliate said bully (not fight him, but humiliate him), and get community service.

                                                        Any Spiderman movie aint the same with at least one kid trapped in some way.

                                                          You can babble incoherently and still manage to appear attractive to the opposite sex.

                                                            All evil geniuses leave a poorly animated video of their evil master plan on an infinite loop next to their expensive equipment in their unsecured sewer lab.

No need to talk him into going to the hospital for a possible tetnus shot or to get stitches.

No, just sit in a confined space with it and breath heavily when the giant lizard enters the room.

Don't think about it if he disappeared from the balcony (or roof?) without getting out through door too, specially if you live in the 20th floor.
