    I was reading an article on IGN about how Transformers makes so much money and in it the movies budget is dropped.

    $210 million.

    Which makes this the most expensive of all the films so far.

    A LOT of this:

    "You can't date"
    "When you were 17 you used to date!"
    "That was a mistake"
    "OMG AM I MISTAKE?"

    "He's my boyfriend"
    "He's not your boyfriend! You're 17!"
    "You had me at 17!"
    "And I don't want you to do that!"
    "OMG AM I MISTAKE?"

    "Stop making out in front of me! You're 17!"
    "Mum was pregnant with me at 17!"
    "I want you to go to your Prom, unlike us!"
    "OMG AM I MISTAKE?"

    With lots of added dosage of:

    "DAD YOU RUINED MY LIFE!!!!!"

    I think that extra 10 million was for the cocaine for the after party.

    LOL!! pretty muchhh

    But i like it, it lends to the idea that life throws everyone curveballs. Its like prime said to Cade 'I went through a similar thing with bumblebee'. Thats not just a throwaway comedic line

    Pretty much the same as TF1, ROTF, or DOTM.

    Are you serious? I mean, you have go to be joking or you zone completely out on dialogue.

    It was literally mentioned in almost every single scene in which the two characters had dialogue together. Actions scenes included. Its not even worth debating because it is 100% the truth. Fan boy denial?

    But yeah, I enjoyed the film. It was not great but it was enjoyable .

    I wouldn't doubt it. It looked way more expensive than Transformers 3.

    I was pretty incredulous that they achieved all that on such a budget.
