I saw it more as a sly way of fakeMoody sneaking in an insult to Harry, since Harry isn't able to make that type of magical change in anything at this point in the series.
My bad then. I actually thought he said whistle.

As for the scene itself, I do agree that it is somewhat...meh. It does certainly lack a cerntain energy from everyone to the cinematography to the editing. It's not that I'm personally spoiled with extremly long takes with no cuts; even Grindhouse got a bit long in the tooth with their nigh 15 minute discussion about everything and nothing. However even something as simple as the discussion between FakeMoody and Harry the editing I felt was pretty poor. All in all it's just another pearl in a string of scenes that are needed but hardly worth rewatching.
