MOVIE:  Spider-Man

GUEST:  Nathan Arizona

NUTSHELL:  Dorky high schooler Peter Parker gets bitten by genetically enhanced spider and transforms into your friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man.

GOOD THINGS:  Tobey Maguire, the babe-alicious Kirsten Dunst, cameo appearance by Bruce Campbell (WHAT?!! – Ed.), cameo appearance by Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Willem Dafoe plays the best super-villain since Jack Nicholson’s Joker in “Batman.”

BAD THINGS:  Dafoe in the Green Goblin mask. What’s up with that? Dafoe LOOKS like a goblin, so why hide his features behind a cartoonish mask?

FEATURES:  Kirsten Dunst in a wet, clingy outfit. Teen angst. Lots of CGI action, but the transfer from flesh-and-blood actors and stuntmen to CGI f/x is almost seamless.

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  As far as the movie itself is concerned, none. But since it was a sold-out show, I had to sit next to a complete stranger. That kind of creeped me out a little.

NOTABLE:  One of the few movies I’ve been to where people actually broke into applause at the end.

BEST PART:  TIE: Peter Parker uses his newly discovered spider power to turn the tables on high-school bully Flash Thompson and Spider-Man and Mary Jane’s upside-down, rain soaked smooch scene.

BEST LINE:  Don’t mind us. She just needs to use the elevator.

CROWNS:  5 out of 5
