After being bitten by a radioactive spider on a school field trip, Peter Parker finds himself gaining spider-like qualities. Adopting the name Spider-Man, Peter first uses his new skills to make money, but when the Green Goblin, another altered super-human, kills Peter's uncle, he swears to use his "spider-skills" to fight evil. Along the way he has to juggle a new job as a local reporter, and a budding romance with a beautiful former-classmate, MJ.

A teenager gets super powers, and his friend's dad gets killy.

Shamelessly, gleefully hackneyed. I guess it's too late now to hope for a J. Jonah Jameson spin-off series.

Pretty good origin story, solid cast. The special effects looked a little cartoonish in places, and the ending ticked me off.
