Re: Why was Seamus clumsy?

At first my answer was going to be that it's just a personality trait. But, perhaps his clumsiness was more than just a simple personality trait. Maybe it was a manifestation of the deep inner conflict he felt at the lack of approval from his muggle father (finding out his wife was a witch was a "nasty shock"). Perpetually unbalanced within, it turned outwards into clumsiness. In order to rectify this he would no doubt need to go through years of extensive psychotherapy to address his subconscious feelings on the subject and restore a trait of gracefulness.

Re: Why was Seamus clumsy?

His magic in general could be more prone to blowing things up.
Magic has been shown to have different tendencies with different people; a good example would be the first flying lesson they take, when they all say the 'up' spell for the brooms and people who are generally good at magic struggled because their magic doesn't naturally lend it's self to that sort of use.
Or Lockhart as another example, he's not very good at most magic, but memory charms come easy to him.

I think it comes less down to clumsiness or character traits than it does magical tendency.

Because the writer and director wanted cheap, stupid laughs.
