It helps to watch this movie with a teenager.

I watched it with a teenager and I enjoyed it. Mostly because I was channeling my inner teenager.

There's not any depth to it. And yet, it's fun. The Transformers, especially Bumble Bee, have personality. The romance between the human leads is unlikely and therefore engaging. The boy's a geek but cute and brave. The girl's too attractive but smart and brave. The boy's parents are lovable caricatures who are thrilled to find the girl in the boy's bedroom.

The fight scene, as is usually the case, is too long. But the girl gets to play a key role which I appreciate.

And, yep, I'll probably see Transformers 2. With my teenager.
