That is actually quite hilarious - it really does show that they have changed the whole character - "little guy beats lots of big guys easily" which is a far cry from the real thing...i.e. the books.

Of course he has a car. They didn't want to show him walking through turnstiles - it would emphasise the fact that he is built pretty close to the ground.

You won't be seeing it? I wouldn't miss it - I like a good comedy.

The preview is nearly as funny as watching those "Charlies Angels" style of film where a 110lb girl beats the crap out of a 250lb street fighter. Maybe they should have put him in a skirt and heels?
