    I don't think most people hated them. I say include them but don't put too much focus on them and keep them away from the main plot. Just so it's not one of those "Ok, we have a teenage boy as the main character, where the hell are his parents" sorta books/movies.

    ^ Exactly. I'd rather see a fan fic of TF3 than anything else. And if you ultimately do conclude on rewriting ROTF, why don't you just put in elements that you want, and take out elements you don't want, and stop asking us for opinions? Then at the end, when you finish, we could then give you constructive criticism, and you can edit your writing skills then?

    Keep them, but their cameo should be balance enough like that one in TFTM, and remove those CORNY and DOGS sex scene.

    Not to throw you to the wolves, eagc7, but I did at one point do that. I don't anymore. I stopped, simply because, well, I wasn't getting the results I wanted. Whether that was not getting enough answers, or not getting the answers I wanted, I stopped. ;)  Haven't posted anything asking for people's ideas and opinions in a while because I realized that Sso02V was right. It was my rewrite, I'll do what I bloody-well want. :)  (But having some other fans opinions is always a good way to get ideas from across the board)

    But in defence of eagc7, he's just trying to do what makes him happy. He just wants to know what a select group of fans would prefer in a particular situation for his project. Nothing wrong with that. And if it means piping up with a pleasant, polite opinion or voting on a poll, so be it.

    And more to the point, back to the topic at hand, I'd say keep Sam's parents, but reduce their role. Yes, the "pot-brownie" scene needs to go (frees up like 1.5 minutes of screentime anyway), and if you could tone down Judy's hormonal imbalances at the beginning of the film (where she's biting the head off of Ron and randomly happy, sad, happy, sad, bawling her eyes out, making jokes, etc.), they're tolerable characters. They provide a nice, relatable human touch to the movie, they just need to be controlled. The scene with Ron and Sam after the Rampage ambush was fantastic, in my opinion. Really emotional and felt so well done. And the deleted scene of Ron and Judy in Paris talking about how they took Sam "out of the oven too early" was great too. Nice dialogue, seemed like a natural conversation between a husband and wife. However, as usual, it got a little unnecessary when Judy starts talking lingerie and the "Eiffel Tower". ;)  No pot-brownies, have some REAL, logical banter between them, and tone them down, etc. Just my opinion, though.

    This has been your friendly neighbourhood fool, trying to type coherently and not tick anyone off, TylerMirage. :D

    I don't need to see the whole rewrite. I can give you some constructive criticism right now.

    SLOW DOWN AND SPELL CORRECTLY, OR NOBODY WILL BOTHER TO READ WHAT YOU POST.
