    So my wife dragged me to the chick flick with Justin Long and Drew Barrymore called "Going the Distance." In it, Drew's character gets drunk in the bar where she waitresses and nearly hits a big dude with a dart and ticks the dude off. Her co-worker has to drag her out because she is trash-talking the dude. So she's screaming "You probably get hard to Michael Bay! You and your friends probably go home and whack off to Transformers!" I'm paraphrasing I'm sure, but that was about the gyst of the line. So does Drew Barrymore hate Transformers? Cuz I looked at the script and the line isn't in it which makes me assume the line was adlibbed by Drew. Thoughts???

    That's a good question. It could be chalked up to being in character, but it could be her actual feelings about them and about Bay. Hard to say.

    Where'd you see the script in order to make that assumption?

    It's a rom-com. Therefore, I would just plain not give a crap.

    Oh my god you're right. I've lived my whole life thinking Drew Barrymore voiced Dory.

    The quote was probably more a jab at Michael Bay and his macho, bombastic style of film-making than a jab at the Transformers franchise. Even before he made the TF movies, there were a lot of people who were critical of his flicks, but name-dropping his most recent stuff makes sense.

    Hrm.... let's think for a minute.
    Michal Bay Directed Transformers
    Transformers was produced by Steven Spielburg
    Steven Spielburg made E.T.
    E.T. Gave Drew Barrymore her start

    I wonder if there might be something to this afterall?!
