I don't think the new Spider-Man is true to the comics at all. Sure, he does the awful one liners that were always the worst part about Spider-Man, but when he's out of the suit, he's Captain Cool Guy, which was never, ever what Parker was like.

The spider suit was like armour to Parker. He could be everything he didn't have the guts to be in real life. Sometimes that caused more trouble than it did good. It was yet another way of bringing his story back to power and responsibility. In the suit he didn't feel awkward. It let him be free and powerful and cool, but that led to recklessness and him accidentally endangering people.

Spider-Man was always about finding balance and I think Tobey did a good job of that. Yeah, he was a weird, stammering goof who sucked at everything. If people didn't like that about his portayal, then they don't like Spider-Man. Garfield is a good actor, but he's not a good Spider-Man.
