    I was OK with the toilet humor, but the pacing in the second act was deadful. Hopefully, the DVD will be better. After the umpteenth explosion, I actually felt bored.

    That's crap. There are plenty of PG13 movies that don't have all the language and sexual content that TF2 did. Lord of the Rings, Matrix (first one, at least), Pirates of the Carribbean, X-Men trilogy, etc.

    I don't mind lines like "It's supposed to hurt, it's an ass kicking" or whatever, but words like sh*t and p*ssy simply aren't necessary. Crap and wuss should suffice, rather than pandering to the lowest common denominator of vulgarity.

    My gripe would be that it should've been Jolt & Sideswipe WITH B'bee that guards Sam, Mik, Leo & Agent Simmons rather than the Twins. At least Jolt & Sideswipe would've gotten more screentime.

    I dont think B'bee & the Twins would've gone far if they were found by the 'Cons.

    Btw, both Jolt & Sideswipe have cool weaponry.

    That's one is so true. You can have a PG-13 movie without trash in it.

    I don't need the trash humor and gutter slang in a movie about toys that my kid plays with. If I want see a college frat movie with humping dogs and ass hanging in the screen I would rent those lame American Pie DVD spin offs or Van Wilder.

    My biggest dissapointment was Megatron not saying "I still function!"

    I can't describe in words what a complete and utter disappointment Devastator was.

    Are we REALLY arguing about this in 2009? Unless you kids live incredibly sheltered lives, they probably hear more bad language at school everyday than in the movie. Even the younger ones, and even if they don't know what the words actually mean. As far as the dogs go, I personally could've gone without seeing that, but it's nothing that they don't show on the discovery channel, Animal planet, and heck, I remember watching stuff like that in school as well. I really don't see what the problem is. I don't have kids myself, but lots of my friends do. They all took their kids to see it (one of which is only 5), and none of them had a problem with it either. It's 2009 not 1957.

    Megatron and Starscream are now just serving as nannies for the hatchlings. Maybe both of them will run for the mother of the year award.

    Sounds like a tv show pitch to me!

    Forget Nanny 911 and Supernanny and all that, send Megatron, he'll straighten those kids out!

    I think this would have made the movie longer. But I think it was mentioned here earlier in the post:

    As Starscream is busy trashing the place below Thundercracker and Skywarp could have came into the picture with guns blazing knocking down several fighters. A total air superiority fight.

    Totally agreed. Out of all those identical Decepticon protoforms and Constructi-clones, it would have been so easy to bring in those two. Frankly, I don't see why they didn't.

    Screw the people who say it's "too G1", seeing the 3 Jets flying in unison would kick ass.

    With a bit of box office for Revenge of the Fallen and Micheal Bay back in the directing chair I'd say it's already too late for Transformers 3 even though they haven't even started yet.

    I only had a few disappointments. Mostly with Sam in the first quarter of the movie. He seemed way out of character. What he said to Bumblebee in the garage was harsh.

    Also the whole when will he say I love you seemed off too. From how he was prtrayed in the last movie I would've guessed he'd have the exact opposite problem. You know saying ti too soon.

    trying to get into a relationship with the hottest chick in the school, and actually admitting/accepting to being "in love" with them arent exactly 1:1 correlations
