Is the fourth time not the charm?
Worst: We're laughing at you, not with you
There are some serious laugh-out-loud moments in "Transformers: Age of Extinction," and none of them intended. The slow-motion action-gasms end up going to 11 this time around, so strained that you can't help but giggle. And boy are there a number of doozies in the dialogue. Marky Mark's witty response to a giant magnet: "It's sucking up metal and then dropping it!" Optimus Prime's requisite solemn soliloquy in the final act: "When you look to the stars, think of one of them as my soul." Just jaw-on-the-floor bad. And where does Bay keep that string-light tree in between movies, by the way?
