    They entertained me and that's all that I care about. Screw this 'racist' crap.

    Their line weren't that funny (with the exception with the "ass-whooping argument). But I likth their character.

    They might have been funnier if they had different voices. They sounded over-active kids sucking on helium.

    i thought they were pretty funny, but any character could have filled their role in the movie. it would have been sweet if it was Sideswipe and Bumblebee with the humans for the second act, and Sideswipe would have to have some wisecracks.

    I thought they were pretty funny, as did many other moviegoers in our theater. Amusing comedy relief!

    Hated them so badly that I may have to just skip the third film if those two idiots have any lines in the third movie.

    In real life I have nothing to do with people who talk like that so if I avoid people like that I'd rather not have to put up with robots like that either.

    Went in expecting to most likely be at least a little annoyed with them. Ended up really enjoying them.

    I liked them, but they should only deserve a 5th of the screentime they were given.

    I thought they were lame, like a comedian who laughs at his own jokes, on stage, while telling them... to an audience who paid to see him.

    I'm of the firm belief that we got more G1 than we were entitled to, and few are thankful for that.

    Given the choice between Skids/Mudflap or say, Wheeljack/Blaster there's no way I would want Skids/Mudflap

    BUT

    people have been ragging about Skids and Mudflap being Jar Jar etc. and you know what? There's so little of them in the film. They aren't onscreen for more than 15 minutes combined, you know? The whole edit of the movie is on crystal meth. Jar-Jar Binks was onscreen TPM near continuously.

    They were ridiculous but the movie needed something to balance it out. They were funnier than the over the top weirdness/not funniness of Simmons and Sam's roommate. Those were the "JarJars" of ROTF if there are any guilty parties.

    This.

    "Hey Kids! Remember all of your favorite Autobots from the last movie? (except Jazz, we killed him DEAD) Well, guess what? They're getting A NEW MOVIE! With cool NEW Autobots like Corvette Sideswipe, Arcee, Chromia and Susan, the Autobot Fem-cycles, and Jolt, the bright blue Autobot with electro-whips!


    ...Okay, enough of that. Now here's two hours of Heckle and Jeckle...

    Your money is now my money and I will spend it on drugs!"

    Transformers do however, need to say 'Punk-ass Decepticon' more often :D  And forgive me if I'm wrong, but I somehow got in my head that Bumblebee flipped off Sam. :inquisiti 

    And I voted no in the Liking the twins poll.
