It doesn't even have to be Transformer centric. The human focus simply just shouldn't be all stupid humor. You could have easily deleted 30 minutes or more of the human scenes and it wouldn't have changed a freaking thing in the Movie. I mean honestly, was this the best way to use Malkovich's talent? By making him Sam's goofball boss? Next to 10,000 other goofball characters?
