I'm going to the guess that was added by a (movie) writer that doesn't understand the difference between long distance running and sprinting.  The dwarves are lousy sprinters, but are very good long distance runners.

More added by a writer who wasn't a LOTR fanboy who thought it would be funny, since he had Gimli say the exact opposite.  it as during the epic run where they were chasing down the kidnapped hobbits.

Movie companies really should know better than to let someone who isn't a complete geek about it work on writing the really epic stuff.  it's not like there's a shortage of supergeek talented writers, just look at fanfic.

The fact that there are ten shitty ones for every one with talent doesn't change the fact there's plenty of talented ones.

Edited title to reflect the thread better  ;)

Evidently Gimli spent more time spamming job cancellations than doing his work, hence him not being as buff as the army.

Gimli was horribly botched in the movies. He was a very deep character. And I don't know where people are getting a creepy vibe from with him and Legolas... It's like Sam and Frodo. You bond when you've been through horrible things with someone. You love them as a brother. Tolkien knew that quite well, having served in the trenches in WWI. People that haven't been in similar situations with extreme camaraderie tend too often to interpret it as homosexuality, or just plain creepiness.

I'm disappointed that Jackson treated one of Tolkien's most interesting race like cliche, beer-swilling, Scottish-accented DND/Warhammer parodies. Tolkien's dwarves were his most tragic race by far, very serious and solemn. Jackson threw that out the window. Let's hope The Hobbit isn't as bad.

Can't be as bad as the cartoon version of the hobbit...Or the cartoon DragonLance movie. Damn, those were painful to watch.

Gotta agree that the treatment of Gimli was probably the biggest disappointment (aside from Frodo sending Sam away). It was okay in the first movie, but in the other two he really became nothing but comic relief, which really pissed me off. And I haven't even read the whole book.

Painful scene from "cartoon version of the hobbit", #1:

"Owin sir, and glowin sir; call him biffur and and him boffur...."

(Cliche midget voices that all use the same voice actor continue..)
(Horrible musical interlude.)

"Bang the cups and crack the plates, that's what bilbo baggins hates!"

(Author of post begins to feel sick to stomach. Song continues. Author cancels continue recording: too insane.)

(Cue 180deg change in tone from nauseatingly happy and sardonic to "wooooo solemn!" As musical score gives way woodwind themed "lonely mountain" theme, and dwarves suddenly realize they have testicles and sing in baritone about their "hall of stone". Bilbo makes dumbshit comment. Gandalf actually replies! Dwarves continue uberdeep, solemn song. Gandalf busts into horrible monologue that would make a super villian jealous. Bilbo pressured into going on the adventure, boom! dwarves forget they have testicles for the rest of the movie, except for singing this song. Aparently thier testicals bounce up and down in their scrotum's like yoyos on command, and in unison.)

Sounds like something Micheal Bay would do, {only he'd add aliens - maybe dorfs ARE aliens}.
