I quite like Sam in the first one, but as I say here:

“The first movie apes classic Spielberg films, but fails to understand his protagonists were middle-class kids from broken homes. Sam lives in a huge house with both parents, and whose dad buys him a car — a rusty old car, but a car nonetheless. While in the first film he’s still the scrappy underdog at high school, in the sequel he’s a college elite and becomes less sympathetic from there. Sam becomes another annoying and useless comic relief character.”

Autistic British know-it-all. I like gods and monsters. Bylines at @multiversitycom and @nerdypoc.
