No wonder Transformers 2 sucked so bad

Shia LaBeouf filming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in Princeton, NJ in 2008

In addition to pretty much admitting to banging Megan Fox in the interview he did with Details, Shia LaBeouf also gave a little hint as to why the 2009 sequel to Transformers sucked so bad. From the article:

[Shia] gave an emphatic thumbs-down to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. “We were flying by the seat of our pants, with an unlimited budget,” he says now, noting that they’d begun shooting without a finished script. “None of us had any clue what we were doing.”

He also told E!:

“We didn’t have a script the second time! It was like a two-hour SNL skit with explosions. We were sort of riffing.”

Shia’s right about one thing, that last Transformers film was a lot like a typical Saturday Night Live skit — painfully awkward. I mean, the only people that find a machine with metal balls amusing are adolescent boys and pachinko players. Let’s just hope this next film didn’t require any improvisation because it already has what everyone wanted from the very beginning: a great plot close-ups of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s tits.
