But seriously, you can't have missed how Spock and Kirk slowly start to become friends, that's all the movie was about.
One could complain that McCoy did not get a lot of screentime and that he had only one scene with Spock, but he did not have much more in previous Trek movies either. I doubt that it was possible to squeeze a third friendship (Kirk-Spock and Kirk-Bones were covered) into one movie.
The beginning to the Kirk-Bones friendship was clear, as it was apparant when Bones "snuck" Kirk onto the Enterprise. As for Kirk-Spock, I feel that the movie left them at the starting point of their friendship: as persons realizing that fate had put them together for a bigger purpose. There will be other adventures to further develop/mature their bond, as well the Bones-Spock friendship.
