    ... And a fire truck, too. All while somehow avoiding highway traffic that all the other soccer mom's get stuck in.

    Frankly I would have done the same thing with Bumblebee.

After finding out that Dylan has been in league with the Decepticons for quite a few years, I think its worth re-examining all those race trophies and wins. Cheater, maybe?

      No matter how many medals you have, no matter how many times you save the world, that whole "FBI was searching for you" thing is gonna really throw a monkeywrench in the ol' getting hired thing.

        Of course, simply being the "messenger" in a galactic war between two advanced robot-alien factions isn't too shabby a position. It's way better than "innocent bystander that Megatron flicked into a taxi".

          innocent bystander as in Michael Bay in the first movie?

        Referring to the kid that a) killed Megatron with the Allspark, and b) resurrected the only Autobot capable of defeating the Fallen as simply a "messenger" means that a certain NSA Director didn't thoroughly read her briefings...

        Green Adidas jumpsuits are not suitable attire for empty-nesters. They're not suitable attire for the general population, either.

            Don't make fun of the kid driving the crappy Datsun. His other car could be an overprotective Camaro with a bad attitude.

              Epps is pretty gung-ho about kickin' some Decepticon ass up until it's time to actually get into the battlezone. And, before that, he took a job watching a launch pad!? Yep - that guy's a wuss.

                To be entirely fair, he did face down Scorponok in the first movie.

              Frenzy - beheaded (twice). Ravage - spine ripped out his butt (ouch). Laserbeak - head shot off with a cannon. I don't think being one of Soundwave's minions is all that great a profession.

                  Knowing that he was going to betray OP and the 'Bots, Sentinel Prime decides not to take the Matrix of Leadership - the greatest source of power left in existence - when it's offered? Uh, with instincts like that, it's no wonder his leadership wasn't that successful.

                    So - Sentinel Prime's Autobots were getting their butts kicked so bad that he had to resort to dealing with Megatron, yet he picks a fight with Megs over the difference between "working FOR him" and "working WITH him"? That's ballsy, dude...

                      The Wreckers got their name due to the fact that, despite their alt-modes being littered with guns and cannons, they prefer to rip their enemies to pieces with their bare hands.

                      Despite your geeky looks, bad hair day, and busting a crystal lamp in the Oval Office foyer, all you need to pick up the rich, British Embassy hottie is a medal from Obama and a finger-point-gun maneuver.

                        Maybe it was just my theatre, but "Mirage" and "Wheeljack" came out sounding an awful lot like "Dino" and "Q"...

                          Don't worry about missing it - I just followed the development of this movie WAY too closely... disappointing last minute name changes, and frankly, Q wasn't half as cool as Wheeljack is supposed to be.

                        The Decepticons decided to move the focal point of their attack to Chicago 'cause they couldn't get filming permission from D.C. New York and Philadelphia just didn't make sense.

                            Predictably, the Ferrari speaks with an Italian accent, but the Mercedes is British? And don't get me started on the Irish NASCARs... The Autobot UN must be all messed up.

                              You know, for your next-to-last statement before death, "Class Dismissed" after kickin' your enemy's ass has gotta rank up there as pretty awesome.
