Yes it does, and I think that's what he is complaining about. The age of innocence is over because the "sprigs" are now growing up and turning into every parents nightmare. I think he was also upset that they seem to spend more time worrying about dates to the Yule Ball than worrying about Harry's safety in the Tournament or Voldemort. That's his opinion.
I am going with friends to see it on the 18th late at night so hopefully we won't have a theater full of screaming kids.

If that's what the reviewer is complaining about then he should have done a book review not a movie review. That was the nature of the book, its an "end of innocence" chapter in the kids' lives. For them to have done differently in the movie would have been to stray far off the course of the book.

I haven't the foggiest, either, Nephy. But maybe the internet can help.
1. Well, the Durmstrang lot does look a lot tougher than the fey Hogwarts Boys.
2. I found a definition of "potty." I don't think I can repeat it here. As decent as I can be, it has something to do with having lots of time on one's hands.
3. Glastonbury is a town in England.
Glastonbury today is a centre for religious tourism and pilgrimmage. Strains of mysticism and paganism co-exist, not always easily, with followers of its Christian heritage. As with many towns of similar size, the centre is not as thriving as it once was but Glastonbury supports a remarkable number of 'New Age' or Alternative shops, often featuring crystals prominently among their wares. The outskirts of the town boast DIY shops and the slow redevelopment of a former sheepskin and slipper factory site, once owned by Morlands.
Glastonbury received national media coverage when, in 1999, cannabis plants were found in the town's floral displays.
As for the red-herrings, those are false clues as to the villain.
[sarcastic]Thankfully, the reviewer tells us who it is in the next sentence.
"Here You Leave the World of California Today and Enter the World of, um, er, California Today."
The second reviewer knew his stuff. That is a good review
A question for the ones who are checking on IMAX tickets. Has anybody found the running time for the IMAX version? Something has to be cut as the film platter for IMAX at the present time can only hold 150 minutes worth of film and by law they can't cut the credits. So I am wondering if they have cut the film somewhere, or do they have the full 157 minuter running time?
