    Not counting the opening and closing monologues and the flashbacks about Sam's grandfather, there's never really a jump in time that's more than a couple hours.

    So, yeah, the events of the movie cover just a few days...but I think it's a bit longer than three, probably about four days or so altogether.

    1. Base attack/buying car
    2. Skorponok's attack/lake party
    3. Epps & Lennox stateside/Sam's arrest/Barricade's attack/Autobot arrivals/Bumblebee's capture
    4. Hoover Dam/Mission City

    Just going from memory here, but I'm pretty sure that's right.

    :)

    ^ I believe I've shown that to be incorrect.

    Like 1000 years or more worth of days. Starting from the time where the allspark crashed to earth to when mikaela and sam had "making out session" on top of a sentient robotic organism while optimus monolougued to the emptiness of space.

    Well... Sam is bailed out of prison in the morning, so him meeting the Autobots and getting arrested can't have happened all in the same night.

    The base attack happened just after sunset at about 7 pm (Keller: "yesterday at 1900 hrs Local Time [Quatar]") and D.C.'s only 8 hours behind Quatar, so yeah...the base attack and the lake party and everything else up to the end of Sam & Mikaela's first "date" all take place on the same first day.

    Thanks, I was just remembering Skorponok attacking the morning after and not factoring in the whole time-difference issue.

    My bad!

    That's what I get for trusting my memory instead of just popping in the goddamned DVD in the first place, lol.
