Accuracy is irrelevant. As long as it all makes sense in the context of the story, however fantastic, that's all that matters. Case in point: I'm sure physicists and historians both had a field day with Back to the Future, but those movies are still brilliant.

Not always...Believability is an important aspect of making a successful film. An appealing, entertaining story and cast of characters is far more important in a film than making sure every mentioned complex math problem is completely correct.
As strange as it might seem, this is a case of a Michael Bay movie not having a big enough explosion.
Now that line got me smilin'. :)

Don't you mean "the plausible impossible"? Walt Disney had an entire episode of his show devoted to that.

Well, I was kind of going for a play on words there. Yep, Disney's was the plausible impossible, but what I was reaching for was making the implausible look plausible, not just the impossible! :)
