    just like the first film, what kinda funny moments do you think there will be?
    I kinda felt with the first movie that the humour is what ruined many portions.

    BB pissing oil, and sam masturbating etc.

    What crazy crap will happen in rotf?

    The humor is one of my worry points because it's something that Bay isn't very good at as a director. He can nail action timing down almost to the split second, but when it comes to comedy timing he has trouble hitting the mark.

    Since Transformers is an action film a bit of humor will help the flow of the film out, but I'm worried too much humor could derail the flow of the film of the film. Sort of like with the first film where some of the humor helped the film but a good bit of the humor should have been left on the cutting room floor.

    The Twins' first meeting with Prime.

    Bumblebee or Ironhide could be taking the Twins along to talk with Optimus about something and telling them to keep their cool and be respectful and they nod and say yea ok. Then when they get close enough to see him they scream "OH MY GOD IT'S OPTIMUS PRIME!!!!" then charge at him and dogpile him. He could turn around an groan "Oh sweet Primus" before being tackled". Would be a cool reference I guess :rolleyes:

    The Twins reach through the movie screen and pull one of the people who hated Bumblebee's oil pissing scene into the actual movie.

    They then BOTH piss oil all over the person while they dance and then he/she cries and denounces Mike Bay as the devil.

    Having seen the new Star Trek, I can tell you humor can be handled very well in an action film. The humor in ST was very dry, sarcastic, and smart.

    Everything the humor from a Michael Bay film is not, essentially.

    I agree I thought the mix of humor worked just right for Star Trek, so it's not that the writers don't know how to write humor into their action films.

    I can just imagine Michael Bay looking through potty jokes on the net, all the while giggling and rolling around like a baby.

    Sorry to burst your bubble kiddo but the Twins have already met Prime in the 4th issue of " Alliance" prequel to ROTF comics.

    I don't think anything is funny, I have no sense of humor.

    The twins will piss me off with their sponge bob voices, Sam's roommate Leon will piss me off with his non-stop banter of "why am I involved bitching" and so will Simmons. The fact that there is a crotchety old transformer is kinda dumb. Epps letting it rain and his left cheek can bite me. And parental interaction can only go so far before you are beating a stick to a dead horse.

    The only funny part I could remotely laugh at is the classic interactions of Megatron yelling at Starscream.

    Well, yeah, I do know that.
    What I don't get is the supposed genius of them saying that.

    Not genius, it's just that the humor fits in with the plot instead of being a distraction (it's a scene that Skids and Mudflap explain to the humans about the cyberglyphs).

    Believe me, I have seen the scene.
    And well, yeah, the sign blends in just like the 'BEE-OTCH' freshener in BB in the first movie did.
    More like an easter egg I'd say.
