just curious as to how you feel about the drugs scene and the language? as a parent, I mean.

I don't get the snobbery about it on this forum though
That's okay you don't have to get it.

There was a drug scene and foul language in the movie? I thought Transformers was for kids! That is sad.

Don't sweat it - it is just Transformers after all. If ever a movie existed that wasn't worth wondering over what people other than yourself thinks about it - it's this one.

Which is why I'm fascinated by the amount of time we've all dedicated to it! It's far more than it remotely deserves.

(Though, it's really no worse than Pirates of the Caribbean's dismal last two films. And the same logic applies - they're a gigantic mess of nothing except special effects, you're not supposed to think about the sense they make. They patently have none.)

Well, there was definitely a lot more language in it then I would have liked but my kids have heard worse before, and most of it Adam didn't pay much attention too, he was too focused on all the action. as far as the drug scene goes I really don't remember that part, not saying it wasn't in there, but it was a fast paced movie, and it kinda bounced around a lot. It was a fun movie though, just wish a couple of choice words were left out.
