Spiderman 3: How to mutate a Spider into a cash cow

The Spiderman 3 movie opened in Bahrain on the 2nd of May. Two days before America's release date. So I went yesterday with my wife to see it.
It appears that the movie font is incompatible with the number three. The Playstation 3 uses the same font and had a lack luster release, similarly, the latest Spidy movie was below my expectations.
I thought I was in for a good Superhero action movie, and at times it was an action movie. It also was a love triangle chick flick and a musical!
The movie shifted from Action to Romance to Drama to Musical so much that it didn't give a sense of what it was in the end. I got in at 1:15 AM and left at 3:30 AM with no intermission. A long movie where my wife had a nap in near the middle. I'm sure it will make hardcore fans revolt over some details as usual and on the confusing style of the movie.
Shame that. I don't want to list any spoilers so you'll not get alot of details from me. Guess that's what happen when a great license is used first and foremost as a cash cow.
The Spiderman 3 game is also being released on the 4th of May. It's being released on Wii, PS3, PS2, XB360, PC, Game boy Advance AND NDS, which further solidifies what I mean by turning this into a cash cow (I am one that is against multiple platfom game releases because the target is maximizing sales rather than making a tailored to fit good game).
If your a Spidy fan you must go nevertheless. If not, pick something else. If you do see it, please tell me what you thought of it. I'd love to know your opinions.

Thank you for sharing your own review about the movie. I guess I will just wait until it is released on the net and watch it at home.
