Want to see Rob Lowe as a villain? Rent "Wayne's World." Want to see David Spade playing smarmy? Watch "Rules of Engagement." Want to see Chris Farley being funny? Catch some "Saturday Night Live" reruns from the early to mid-1990s. Any one of those is preferable to this lame 1995 comedy starring Farley as a dimwitted underachiever who teams up with an efficient but obnoxious accountant (Spade) to save the family business. When it comes to bringing the laughs, the movie's an underachiever, too.
National League playoff contenders go at it today at Turner Field, where Justin Upton and the East-leading Atlanta Braves close out a four-game series against Adrian Gonzalez and the struggling Los Angeles Dodgers.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
The war between the Autobots and the Decepticons rages anew, with young Sam (Shia LaBeouf) still caught in the middle, in returning director Michael Bay's relentlessly noisy, almost completely incoherent action sequel inspired by the Hasbro toy line.

Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro also return from the original cast.
There's no need to fear; just keep your remote near. This 2007 live-action take on the classic cartoon will break the heart of anyone who knew and loved the original. Jason Lee ("My Name Is Earl") -- who's built up quite a resume voicing former 1960s 'toon icons ("Alvin and the Chipmunks") -- provides the voice of the hound who becomes a superhero after a lab accident gives him powers. Kids who haven't seen the cartoon won't care, but for anyone who has, comparisons are inevitable, and this one is, well, a dog.
