it's not that i'm a huge fox fan but i had to watch two movies of her and shia being 'perfect for each other' and the third movie wasting all that and having a lame excuse to why they broke up.


kinda like what would've happened at the spider-man trilogy if they replace mary jane with gwen stacy all of a sudden and with the exact same excuse.

she sucked ass imo. I actually thought she was american her accent was that bad.



Haha... Not sure how "bad" her accent can be concidering it was in fact real! :lol:

It's not the first time a Brit's accent has been panned.

Charles Shaughnessy of The Nanny was told by letters from fans that he needed to work on his accent so he'd sound like Daniel Davis, who played his butler Niles and Moriarity in TNG. Here's the thing, Davis is from Arkansas....

Natural accents suck I guess. Or it could be that we're so used to horrible Hollywood work that we don't know the real thing when it's staring us in the face? ;)


I think the problem is that they usually use the stuck up, plum in mouth accent if its a UK actor (not always but often). I thought her accent was awful...and i live here!

You'd think with all of the Harry Potter movies that have been made, people would know that Britain has as many different dialects and accents while still retaining that British posh, as the United States eastern seaboard.

it's not that i'm a huge fox fan but i had to watch two movies of her and shia being 'perfect for each other' and the third movie wasting all that and having a lame excuse to why they broke up.


i agree megan would have fit perfectly in the movie especially with bee dropping the "rings" at the end of the movie.

I've got to agree also. Throwing in a new actress just felt kind of cheap to me and like I'd been cheated out of a couple of years that I'D invested in Sam and Mikaela (sp?).

Also, I'm not justifying her actions...but I'm pretty sure if I referred to my boss as Hitler, I would not ever get fired. Let alone if my boss didn't take issue with it...
