Ridicule (Middle Age men) for shooting with dedicated Camera
1

I ♥ spiderman, but that scene bother me.  It is yet another

  • Ridicules Middle Age men for shooting with a dedicated camera
  • that scene add (nothing to the plot) of the movie
  • that scene was completely unnecessary to Peter Parker & the Spiderman
  • why was that specific scene added?  Other than making fun of middle age men?

Every seconds counts in filming & screen writing, thus any plot or scene that slow-down-the-movie is usually removed/cut in the editing.  I thought that scene was completely unnecessary:

  • That male teacher was already portraits as a LOSER in the 1st movie
  • and having No Friends to take a photo of him, further established his LOSER identity
  • then having him drop an expensive Leica was simply adding SALT to the wounds

Wouldn't it be more efficient to write him off completely?  Why adding him as a comic relief other than making fun of middle age camera shooter?  Anyhoot, I hope you all saw the movie to understand what I am talking about.
