  Compared to the rest of his bonehead film comedies, "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" gives Ben Stiller one of his best laughs-per-capita ratios since "There's Something About Mary." It's not as riotous as "Mary," or as clever and limber as "Meet the Parents." It's just funny. "Dodgeball" uses the playground game to set up a take-off on triumph-against-the-odds sports movies such as "Rudy" and "Hoosiers." Vince Vaughn, showing the bemusement and panache of a young Dean Martin, is Peter, easy-going owner of Average Joe's, a rundown gym that caters to misfits like Steve (who thinks he's a pirate), a doughy dork whose mail-order bride cheats on him, and a skinny high-school whipping boy. Peter's archrival is perfectly-coiffed, egomaniacal jerk White Goodman (Stiller, super in sniveling villain mode), owner and operator of mega-sized Globo Gym. White wants to buy the near-bankrupt Joe's, and raze it. He also wants to woo Kate (Christine Taylor), the bank examiner investigating Peter's books. The only way for Peter to save his gym and win the girl is by gathering his reject pals, entering a championship dodgeball tourney in Vegas and winning. But White puts together his own team, setting up a showdown match, complete with surprise cameos that add to the merriment. With Rip Torn as a surly, retired dodgeball hero.
