Mr. White: [looking at Gale in a white bikini] Very nice.
Gale Hoffman: Why do I have to dress this way?

No, not quite
10 June 1999 | by DrWormSee all my reviews

Although this isn't terrible for a low-budget TV movie, it doesn't really work. This is mainly for one reason: Spider-Man hardly gets to do anything! Most of the movie is Peter Parker stumbling into an incident involving a nuclear bomb, and stuttering to people when they ask him about Spider-Man. A good effort was made here, but it just doesn't have a Spidey feel to it. They should have gotten one of the comics' writers to come up with a story for this one. Oh, well.
