    Bruno and Ice Age beat out Transformers, ouch. I wonder if there be any racist controversy about Bruno, I mean if people found the Twins offensive I wonder what they'll think of some of the crazy stuff in Bruno

    Bruno's subject matter is a lot different from a Transformers movie.

    Bruno's entire character is about bringing out the homophobia in people he interacts with just as Borat was about bringing out the xenophobia and antisemitism in people he interacted with.

    And gay people aren't a race.

    What does homophobia have to do with naming a black baby O.J?

    It's understandable. It was going to be knocked off the top eventually. The real "ouch" is how Transformers will still make more than possibly both combined when the smoke clears.

    MrSoundwave said "ouch" to the fact ROTF lost to Bruno and Ice Age. Windcharger is pointing out that he believes ROTF will make more than both movies combined, which in the end would be a bigger ouch. I guess.

    Not so much ok just a poor compairison to ROTF. You expect that kind of stuff from SBC but not Transformers. Then again, farts are pretty funny :D

    I expect that kind of stuff from Transformers. Rhinox opened the door on fart jokes over 10 years ago. And G1 opened the door on 'emulating bodily functions' with getting drunk on energon. Transformers has always been a campy/corny humor-laced series, and not 'high comedy' either.

    Box office totals shouldn't change your opinion.
    It just means maybe other people didn't have a like minded opinion.
