PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Peter Parker is beset with troubles in his failing personal life as he battles a brilliant scientist named Doctor Otto Octavius.
The hospital scene was supposed to be more violent and bloody but it was tamed down to keep a PG-13 rating. The violence is however well detailed in the novelization. Some doctors and nurses actually end up disemboweled.
She looks at me everyday. Mary Jane Watson. Oh boy! If she only knew how I felt about her. But she can never know. I made a choice once to live a life of responsibility. A life she can never be a part of. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man, given a job to do....
When Doc Ock grabs MJ at the café, her left arm is clearly inside the grasp of the claw, as the shot continues, her arm comes out of the grasp.
In the extended cut, opening title says "Spider-Man 2.1" instead of "Spider-Man 2".
On some US TV versions, there is some alternate dialogue between Peter and Mary Jane when he takes out the garbage after his birthday party that wasn't in the theatrical or DVD releases. The most notable is a two-line addition after Mary Jane says, "I'm seeing somebody now." Peter responds, "Oh, therapy." Mary Jane answers, "No, a man." That part of the dialogue especially gives the whole scene a less optimistic feel.
