I know this is a stupid thread, but I mean... this goes beyond bad writing. When Shiah LaBeouf acted this he should have told Bay "Look, dude, this feels totally off-character. No kid that owned an alien robot that transforms into a deluxe Camaro and helped him save the world would act up to him this way". Him having Bumblebee and saying he needs to go to college because it's something he wants to experience is like having won the lottery and throwing the money into a river because you want to experience having a normal life. It just doesn't make any sense! Discuss if you like. Ignore otherwise.
