Yeah the Peter dancing was lamer than Tony's. But they are done for the same reasons and both are eye-roll inducing, I think. And the drunken brawl is more laughable than the girlfriend beating.

Just throwing it out there. Just saying.
I would disagree except that they both are intended to show the main character out of control. Where they differ is that alcohol actually will have that effect on a person. But since when does the symbiote turn Peter into an emo dancing dork? That's not what it does. It's supposed to heighten aggressive tendencies. How does going emo or dancing fit? It doesn't and that's why it was a bad choice that still gets mocked. I don't think Iron Man dancing will get the same reception since it makes more sense.
