Look Out! There's....Another F-Bomb.

Yeah, much to the chagrin of parents, the home video release of DOTM has been modified to add foul language, not remove it.

In the scene where Bruce gives Sam info and sees Bumblebee, he was supposed to say "Freakin' awesome!", which he did in the theatrical cut. Here in the home video release, both DVD and Blu-Ray, he says "F*ckin' Awesome!"

Just to make sure I heard it right, I replayed the scene and put on the subtitles and closed captioning. Sure enough, it's there. So anyone who's offended by such language or has children they would like to shelter from it, this is a heads up.

I have to be honest, I have to agree with parents. It's unnecessary in a film such as this one. It's more prevalent and intended to be heard than Megan's f-bomb in ROTF. You can tell it's intended.

It's when Sam dies, she yells "f*cking do something!" It's kind of hard to make out because it was in that muffled in the distance sort of effect.

And I believe an explosion or a tank firing also took place in the back ground.

As for the DotM instance, I'm waiting for the November release, so haven't heard. But I am not a parent, so I won't speak for any, but to me it's not a big deal. At least it was a supporting character this time. Would have been worse if it had been one of the bots. Except maybe Megatron. It would have suited him perfectly.

This movie just lost a bunch of brownie points with me.

There is NO point to making such a change!

And why would they bother to make such a meaningless change when they could have better spent their assets elsewhere if they were making changes? Throwing in one more F-Bomb is just stupid.

It's kind of a big deal when there's emphasis behind it. You could tell they intended for you to hear this. Not impressive for a movie that's aimed at the younger crowds. I realize why it doesn't bother you and many others. I get it, I do.

However, is it really necessary in a movie about TransFormers?

How come when I went to the theaters, I actually heard John Malkovich say the actual word instead "Freakin"? I thought this was acknowledged by fans already. :???:

They added that F-bomb the Malkovich guy said just for the DVD? Okay, that's kinda funny.

DOTM was rated PG here in the theatres, and as soon as I heard the curse in question on the DVD I immediately thought oh, so THAT'S what got censored out to make it PG. I would never have assumed or believed otherwise unless I'd read this thread!

Like I said, kinda funny. But also weird. What's the point?

PS: That cut-off "cluster-f%$&" comment I heard in the theatre seems a lot more prominent and less cut on my DVD copy too. And I think Wheelie said something 'extra'...can't remember what exactly right now...

Exactly. It's completely unecessary.

I mean, even the two curse word inserted into the 1986 G1 movie were utterly pointless to that film, serving no other purpose than to force a PG rating upon it. Take away the two and nothing is lost from that movie.

There was no impact from those words aside from a cheap "wow" factor, and same goes for this one here. The Seven Dirty Words and other such colorful language have no place of necessity in the Transformers.

Unless it's a more mature...thing. I mean, if there where to be an R rated TF movie in the futire (I wouldn't put it past Hasbro.), and if the story was actually trying to prove a point, then it'd be necessary.

The belief that swearing is "mature" is a fallacy. It's more mature to choose to take the higher route of not swearing than it is to give in to swearing.

I wonder if the one obvious F-bomb and secondary muddled one were added, presumably to the movie-as-originally-made given that some of you folks did seem to get to see an 'uncensored' version, specifically to GET that PG-13 rating? PG-13 is supposedly the 'best' rating for movies aimed at the tween and teen market, isn't it? No hassles about restricting entry to anybody, but also no perceptions that it's too 'tame' a movie...isn't that the market thinking? Movie sexual content and violence are still kind of subjectively assessed when it comes to ratings here in Canada. The ratings assigned can vary by region, even by province. But cursing, that's much more clearly delineated across the board. Any use of the F-bomb will bump any movie up to PG-13 here. Use it more than (I THINK) twice and you're getting an R. So...perhaps a deliberate decision on the movie-makers' part in order to get the rating they wanted? DOTM certainly didn't warrent a PG-13 in my estimation--and evidently that of our local movies review board too--for its violence alone. WAY too cartoon-like for concern...

The original Transformers movie ran as a PG feature in the theatres here also (dunno about ROTF). And we never did get to see Beast Wars--we got Beasties instead. Blame our even wonkier television ratings system for THAT one!

And they wont bump it up when Sam has done "s*** that matters"?!
Anyway, sucks for your TV ratings.

I noticed that too. I was a bit confused because I didn't recall any "f" words in the movie save for the two that are cut off and the "WTF" acronym. And I certainly didn't remember that in that scene with Sam's boss and Bumblebee, I remember him saying "freakin'". I also agree with the others who think that adding that to the home release was unnecessary. Not sure why they felt to need to put that in...

This would be incorrect concidering it had a PG-13 rating without the F-bomb. I don't know what country your from, but in the U.S., it's not the swear word that warrants the rating system, its how its used. Example..
Telling someone to "F*** off!", or "F*** you!", is concidered far worse than say "Wow, this robot is f***ing awesome!" So the use of one "F" word alone will not get a PG-13 rating. The story, tone, and violence, sexual referances, nudity, language all play a parts in how a movie is rated. In DOTM case, the violence, language, and sexual inuitves (sorry, not sure if that's the right word) all what gave it a PG-13 rating. And if i had to pick one that through it over the edge, i'd have to say the action/violence set it off for its PG-13 rating. Not one swear word alone.

As far as the actual use of the word in the DVD, for me its not a big deal, but at the same time, it really wasn't nessasary either. It certinbaly didn't add any humor.

Actually, this isn't quite correct. You could use the f-word once per film, in PG, in the '80s. Notable examples: Beetlejuice, BIG.

BIG was the game changer. When the boy used it, it made the MPAA crack down. That, along with a few other things made them change their minds.

One use, no matter the connotation behind it, will automatically net you a PG-13.

You may use up to three of them in a PG-13, as long as they're spaced out and without a sexual connotation. The instant it becomes sexual, it's automatically R.

The American President is one of the only films, if not the only film, to hold the distinction of pushing the boundaries and keeping it's rating. It was used three times in various connotations in a 15 minute (or less) time span. It became a notable fact, actually.

So, it's inclusion was truly unnecessary. They added it for no legitimate reason. Impact, perhaps, but it was unnecessary. Parents should feel lied to. They went to see it in theaters, it was questionable then, but their kids were old enough to enjoy it. Now this? No longer family friendly. And that's after they spent the money on the DVD/BD.

It doesn't even say that the dialogue was changed from the theatrical release like ROTF did. I find it shady.

Looks like you got me on a technicality, because i was thinking of beetle juice when i was typing my past post. :grin: Good Eye. But regardless, it wasn't the F-bomb that recieved iDOTM it's PG-13 rating since it wasn't used in the theater version.

BUt it sems that the MPAA comitte can in fact over rule this if they feel it nessasary. BUt it seems they do that more with the transition between PG-13 and R ratings.

They certainly can. Which is kinda messed up. I've seen movies that clearly needed a much heavier rating and ones that weren't even close to a PG-13 but got it anyway.

The ratings system needs a massive overhaul, with public input to help them pin down exactly what goes where.

BIG was the game changer. When the boy used it, it made the MPAA crack down. That, along with a few other things made them change their minds.

One use, no matter the connotation behind it, will automatically net you a PG-13.

You may use up to three of them in a PG-13, as long as they're spaced out and without a sexual connotation. The instant it becomes sexual, it's automatically R.



Looks like you got me on a technicality, because i was thinking of beetle juice when i was typing my past post. :grin: Good Eye. But regardless, it wasn't the F-bomb that recieved iDOTM it's PG-13 rating since it wasn't used in the theater version.

I agree with that, I don't understand how a few words or nudity is considered worse than horrific violence. What were the Indiana Jones movies rated? PG or PG-13, yet they have peoples faces being melted off, heads exploding, hearts getting ripped out, and people being burned alive. I think that's the kind of stuff they should be concerned with, not a few harmless words or body parts.

yes, Inianna Jones movies were rated PG. And it was those movies that were part of the creation of the PG-13 rating in general since so many parents created an uproar of the violence and gore.

I don't care if they say f*ck or not. I think it is stupid they would add that to the dvd release, but I don't think its a big deal. Spike said sh*t in the '86 movie.

Holy damn! I didn't know they allowed such violence in PS/PG-13 movies! I remember how in the Star Wars original trillogy, people got limbs cut off all the time and they where only PG. I always wondered why.
