Even though they were featured moreso in this than the first, did you enjoy the antics and dramatic scenes of Judy and Ron Witwicky this time around? I do find it funny how they play against type with them and make Ron the sensible one and Judy the screwball parent as opposed to vice versa. Though she went a tad overboard in the college scenes.

I wanted the mom to get squished. Her hash brownie scene was this movie's time-wasting equivalent of the Autobots walking on the lawn in Transformers 1. Her only redemption was at the end.

The father however, was a far better character. Kind of reminded me of the comics version, and his scenes with Sam were very strong.

The parents are great. The only bad moment was the brownie scene which didnt make sense and came off more irritating than funny.

I thought they were superb once again, and had me in stitches in most scene's, even the brownie one (although thats NOT how you would react to eating one of those), I found them really funny in the first half of the movie.

Also, what I liked about their role in this movie, they were responsible for one of, if not the most powerful scene in the movie, with Ron refusing to let Sam go in the desert. I thought that was one of the best scene's in the movie.

I agree with what Ironhide said in the first film
Ironhide: The parents are very irritating...

Ironhide couldn't of put it better.

Their antics have become stale and annoying for me at least. I really hope they don't appear in TF3.

One could say that was the only drama of the film. If only Bay could have made that sensible drama more prevalent in the entire movie!

The parents had their place and were funny with the exception of the brownie scene. I'd like to see a little less to around the same amount of screentime for TF3.

They're annoying, but then, they're clearly supposed to be.

I thought they were funny enough, at least as much as the first movie. Some of the family drama was a bit forced, but in the middle of a warzone, there's not really many options for that to come into play.

I think the point of the brownie scene is that she just wants to cut loose in that environment, not that the brownie actually affects her that way. She's been boiling over since the first scene she's in, and this is her just getting it out. At least that's how I took it, because she seems to be well aware of what she's eating and doing. That doesn't make it any less stupid, mind you.

The parents are great. Even the brownie scene, I loved it all. I wonder how much of their stuff was ad libbed?

The parents brought plenty of hilarity to the movie as they did in TF1, but, as someone else pointed out, they also got their moments of drama as well which was really nice to see.

Also as someone else said though, I wish there would have been more scene's of drama with them.
