Being an Australian and watching it with an Australian audience over the weekend, I understand exactly what you mean. Parts that incited raucous laughter include: 1) The American "slow clap" - about a dozen times 2) Spidey in front of the huge American flag 3) The "everyone's a victim" tone to the whole movie... eg. sandman isn't a bad guy, he's just misunderstood, give me a break 4) Spidey's emo sequence (pushing his hair down in front of his face, getting all sullen-teenager like). I was seriously waiting for him to break out some my chemical romance and make a half-assed attempt at slashing his wrists 5) Spidey blubbering rediculously at the break up with MJ 6) Harry's butler - "I loved you like I loved your father", that whole bit I spent the whole movie thinking, "When's the real movie going to start?". Simply awful. Wait for the DVD people... or download it. I don't think it's even worth hiring.
