Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen * ( 1 STAR) $42.3 million $293.3 million 2.5 weeks Rated: PG-13 Running time: 137 minutes What it's about: The good-guy robot aliens, the Autobots, team up with a gutsy U.S. military unit - and Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf - to bring down the bad-guy robot aliens, the Decepticons. Our take: The whirl, bang and general bother of crashing gears and gnashing metals end up suffocating the senses. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs ** ( 2 STARS) $41.6 million $66.7 million 1.5 weeks Rated: PG Running time: 94 minutes What it's about: The joys and panics of impending parenthood for woolly mammoths inspire Sid the sloth (above)

Here's one for everybody who ever got stiffed on a tip or hit on by an over-the-hill manager. Waiting, written and directed by former waiter Rob McKittrick, is a raunchy, rude, Old School-style look at the world of the waiting and the waited upon. Ryan Reynolds is perfect as Monty, the overage Lothario who's made a career waiting on folks at ShenaniganZ, and of sexing up its underage waitresses. He tells a new recruit, restaurant work is "about learning the routine" - such as how to deal with hateful customers and "push" foods about to spoil in the freezer.

Anna Faris is shamelessly hilarious as a vainglorious pop idol in Just Friends, channeling every blond pop tart who ever flounced her way into the modern pop consciousness (Britney, Christina, Jessica ... you know who you are). Ever-whining, ever-tawdry, her mind (what there is of it) firmly lodged in the gutter, Faris' Samantha James is a comic creation of manic beauty. She struts, she pouts, she preens, she shouts. When she's onscreen, Just Friends is as funny as anything to appear in theaters in 2005.

It's hard to figure where it's going, and when the movie's over, it's even harder figuring where it's been. But the careening roller-coaster ride calling itself Smokin' Aces is such a hoot to be on, who really cares? Best of all, writer-director Joe Carnahan injects a steady stream of black humor into the proceedings (at least until the final act, where things turn all serious and edifying). Unlike his previous film, the loathsome bloodbath Narc, Smokin' Aces revels in its absurdity. The acting is over the top, the story line is over the top, even the cinematography - stark overexposures and unflattering close-ups - is over the top. You don't believe a minute of it, but the film has such a reckless, gonzo sensibility that it's impossible not to get overwhelmed (in a good way)

Take one established female star (Sandra Bullock) hungry enough for a hit to sign on to substandard material. Add a male up-and-comer (Ryan Reynolds) who still has to prove that he's a leading man. Proceed to wrap them inside a romantic comedy with several high-concept twists. Hot-weather audiences flocked to The Devil Wears Prada a few years ago.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Tara Reid and the film industry know she can do a comedy for the hormone-addled set. The star of the American Pie movies is now featured in a good-natured college romp called National Lampoon's Van Wilder. But when it comes to serious roles, Hollywood and Reid seriously disagree. Reid said all she needs is the right script and right director to prove herself. She called filmmakers who do not think she can do the thespian thing stupid. "I'd love to do movies with Scorsese or Steven Soderbergh or Oliver Stone or Spielberg," she said.

Definitely, Maybe imagines a world where happy endings are de rigueur, but getting there is no picnic. As romantic comedies go, that may not exactly qualify as a revelation, but in the hands of writer-director Adam Brooks and his uniformly charming cast, it adds some welcome spice to a genre that rarely ventures beyond the predictable anymore. We've seen it all a hundred times: Couple meets cute, breaks up sad, reunites in the final reel. Only this time, there's one guy and three gals, leaving the film to chronicle three meet-cutes and three breakups, but only one feel-good reunion.
