Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

(0:08:52) An early scene features lingering, exceedingly close-up shots of Carly's backside while she wears skimpy bikini underwear and one of Sam's shirts. We watch as she climbs on top of him and straddles him in bed. Though we never see the pair in bed together after that, a sexual relationship is clearly implied. And even though they're apparently living together, both agree that they're not yet ready to say "I love you."

(0:11:27) Carly and Sam straddle again, both are fully dressed although she's in a mini-skirt.

(0:11:46) There's a short discussion of a robot going through Carly's underwear drawer.

(0:37:00) The camera is looking up from the ground when Carly exits a car wearing a very short skirt - you do not see anything except a shadowed area under her skirt.

(0:41:04) Sam is confronted by a co-worker in a bathroom stall, and the co-worker drops his pants in order to pull out a printed document he has hidden. They then struggle in the stall before exiting, while Sam's boss looks on. (His boss later mentions the encounter again, stressing that he doesn't care about what his employees do with others in a bathroom stall.)

Carly's physique gets regular attention from the camera, though never quite as obviously as in the scene described above. Dylan has eyes for her, and he compares her curvaceous figure to the sensual form of a vintage automobile in his collection. Someone makes a joke about wanting to frisk Carly, and a scene with her eating licorice is played suggestively. Other women also wear revealing tops, while skirts and dresses display a lot of leg. An office worker dubs a colleague a "hoochie mama" because she wears a skimpy outfit. Somebody fondly recalls a secret affair with a woman and makes a suggestive comment about her backside.

Sam's mother offers him an explicitly titled book about female orgasms and says he won't be able to land another beautiful girlfriend unless he's well endowed and knows how to pleasure a woman.

Violence & Gore

Men get vaporized by Decepticon guns, leaving only their skulls and bones rolling down a street. A grieving, begging Autobot is mercilessly executed, shot in the back of the head by a laughing Decepticon. Terrified Chicagoans scramble to flee attacking Decepticons, whose reinvigorated troops systematically decimate the city, on the ground and in the air. Skyscrapers are toppled, roads and bridges destroyed, cars flung this way and that. The destruction of the Windy City in the last hour of the film, in fact, is nothing short of apocalyptic, especially as a massive, snakelike Decepticon named Shockwave eats away at buildings and foundations. High-speed chases and enemy fire leave cars flipped and strewn like litter across a freeway. At least two men plunge to their deaths from high windows. A subway car is littered with human bodies.

In a lengthy scene, Shockwave and a host of other Decepticons try to kill Sam and his friends, who are trapped in a toppling tower. They repeatedly slide this way and that, along with office furniture and broken glass, as the building shifts and crumbles.

As for the Autobot-on-Decepticon battles, they're myriad, with those colliding robots shooting, pummeling, pounding and killing each other frequently. Transformers on both sides of the conflict are dismembered and decapitated as well as drawn and quarteredoften with red, oil-like "blood" gushing from their wounds. Several of these battles end in brutal, execution-style finishing attacks.

A man savagely hits a woman in the head with his gun. Other people are held at gunpoint. Several planes containing humans are shot down.

Profanity

We hear (0:10:29) one full f-word and another that is whispered. The acronym "WTF" comes up as does the uncompleted phrase "clusterf--k." another f word is almost said but Sam stops himself, and another (0:58:00) f-in awesome. Around 10 s-words. Jesus is used twice. Other language includes 10 or so uses of "Ass," as well as a handful each of "Hell," "Damn," "Dick" and "Bitch." "Wanker" and "Bastard" are each uttered once.

Several scenes picture characters drinking beer, wine and champagne. One close-up shot zooms in on bottles of liquor sitting on a table. Quoting the movie Tommy Boy, Sam's Transformer friend Bumblebee asks someone who's behaving badly if he ate paint chips as a kid.

Lots of battles, explosions, and gunfire.

We see countless people get killed by Decepticons and falling objects.

The Decepticons and other transformers could be frightening to young children.

The final 30 minutes and the end of the movie is quite intense.

Many may be disturbed by the destruction of Chicago and the deaths of both humans and transformers.
