    I heard in an interview that there was going to be lots of action, Deaths and Humour. Just thinking what kind we will be expecting. I could imagine just a little gross humour from maybe Que, Wheelie or Brains.

    Just like the last 2 movies

    Mojo dumps waste on Ironhide's foot
    Frenzy gives the finger (I didn't even know they knew that kind of language.
    Bumblebee lubricates on Simmons
    Wheelie was doing that thing on Mikela's leg
    Jetfire's fart was a paroshoot
    And Devastator...

    Don't get me start!

    To anyone who saw the movie, was there anything like that?

    no need to spoiler block it or tell us what, just say that there is.

    Yes. Some pretty good jokes, better than ROTF, though they do fall flat sometimes. Not a whole lot of potty humor, if that's what you're hoping for.

    That's what I was thinking, but that is what I was not hoping to see. example: I didn't want to see what Que would do, I would say "they are ruining Wheeljack reputation."

    I think you'd be better off just seeing them in the movie, but if you insist. A lot of the humor is context and delivery based.

    "Those are the Wreckers. We don't let them out much. They're assholes."

    Sam's car is a PoS Datsun with the same paint-scheme as bumblebee and his inability to get it to work while everyone around him has amazing cars is a running gag

    Sam's boss is a psycho and fires somebody for bringing a red mug to his yellow-themed floor

    This dude named Wang hides his evidence of a conspiracy in his pants and then brings them out into Sam's face while on the toilet and there's some insinuations of homosexuality

    LOVED that. Ironhide's line was priceless. Made the movie for me seeing him have a crack at a one liner.

    Sam's mom is horrified to hear that he and Carly might have broken up. She goes from warning him that after losing Mikaela, and losing Carly, he's not likely to attract another "hottie," to speculating that he may be getting these "hotties" due to the length of his... yes. Yes.




    Yes.

    More of a fan wank I found Sentinal Prime saying the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few since it was Nimoy as the VA and a play on a famous Star Trek quote.

    The only bad part was the bathroom stall part. Other than that, the comedy wasn't too bad. A few cuss words but not too bad. THe word asshole gets used once or twice and Megatron gets called a dick by Dempsy. Other than that a few inuendos. Sam's mom making the reference to size of Sam's package and when Brains and Wheelie are in the spaceship where Brains says "this is a cluster" and they change scenes before he drops the f-bomb.

    Cleaner than the other two movies. Washroom scene was the only rude offender.

    I never understand why movie makers feel the need to add stuff like this.

    See the Sentinel Prime hate thread for my thoughts on this bit of fanwankery.

    I was pleased with the humor in this one... except for Jerry. (Couldn't he have just unzipped his pants and reached in to grab the papers he was hiding, did he need to drop his drawrs? ... anyway)

    I liked that there was more of the "good" type of humor with stuff that's situational with the character... such as Dutch's scenes, especially the one in the bar when he goes hardcore on them. :lol

    No, Sam cuts her off with what is basically a "I'm not listening, I'm not listening..." kind of thing.

    I actually almost snorted my Coke out my nose at that bit.

    Humor? Of course, it is a Bay film. Practically everyone in the film is ridiculous unless they are a main Autobot, a Decepticon or a bad guy.

    There was some. Less than ROTF. The restroom scene could have been left out. Sam's mom of course had her line, but it was funny.

    The only thing that I kind of groaned at was Jerry Wang. Ugh. But Judy Witwicky I actually enjoyed, if only for this line:

    "I like it, it reminds me of Bumblebee... if Bumblebee were an old piece of shit."

    It really helped that a lot of the humor was offset by the incredibly dark tone of the film. Jerry Wang's scene was paid off by the sheer terror of Laserbeak's assassinations.

    The humor in this one wasn't nearly as overdone as it was in ROTF and it actually adds to the movie this time rather than detracting from it. Hell, I didn't really think Wheelie and Brains were too annoying this time, they seemed more like actual characters with a purpose this time around. *ducks*
