No way.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think there's any conflict (necessarily) between the high emotion that follows the battle and Bilbo's return home. The auction doesn't have to be played as a comedy - after all, imagine what it would be like to come home and find your home being sold off!

You want to feel the change in Bilbo - well, I reckon that by showing his return as it is in the book, and his reaction to the Shire, that's how we do see the change in him, and what he has learnt from the experience. Bilbo's return isn't a waste of time - essentially, it's what the whole story is about.
