    That's what the writers claim. Apparently there were more lines between the two, but Bay cut them out to make way for the human heart and comedy.

    Bay...WHY????

    Well, maybe we'll be lucky and they'll show up on the DVD deleted scenes.

    Why?...cause Robots with personalities aren't something that audiences can relate too. Now hackers, teens with bossy yet funny parents, and soldiers are something audiences can relate too.

    if they left the lines in, we risk losing the knowledge that Glen ate the whole plate. Are you okay with that?

    I think a far better question would be
    "Why does Bay get blamed for everything, whether it's his fault or not?"

    I agree! A movie about transformers would be nothing without the proverbial donut eating, BB pissing and Sam's masturbating "happy time" scenes.

    Who needs more Megs and Screamer in a TF flick? :rolleyes2

    I think I read an article and Bay said, "Everything I did in this movie was done with the sole purpose of pissing off Conceptron, especially casting Megan Fox."

    The real reason, time contraints.

    I think Pearl Harbor had a ton of extras and latter a directors cut that was R rated. I feel like there was an Armaggedon release with extra scenes in the film too.

    Thanks man!

    Almost ALL the human characters pissed me off, so I hope I want be seeing them in extra scenes.

    But by judging by the Bad Boys 2 extensive deleted scenes, Bay will have loads more jokes for all of us to enjoy.

    the movie is missing stuff from the trailers as well. ironhide's slow-motion jump while firing his cannons, and sam screaming "he's not gonna hurt you" are nowhere in the final film. makes me wonder how much robot action was cut out.

    Ironhide's jump is there, right after Brawl throws Jazz; or is it cut different?

    But I did notice missing lines, Sam's and Anthony Anderson's "the killer robot is really distracting" line come to mind.

    I could have sworn it wasnt there. I've seen it six times, so if I'm just missing it somehow I'm gonna be really embarassed.

    Brevity really, and for a general audience banter between Megatron and Starscream would probably make them less threatening. I speak as a filmgoer and a fan.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one to notice how many fillings she had. Too much sweets as a kid, those boobs were store-bought as well. Excellent special effects making them move and look more real though. If they had taken that money and put it into a longer robot scene, I don't know if I'd be happier or not.
