I haven't seen the new movie, but I'm aware enough of what Michael Bay finds "funny" or "for the kids" to understand that I'll find it to be neither. I do think, however, that a more accomplished and story-smart filmmaker might have made a viable franchise from the TRANSFORMERS material. "Viable", that is, meaning "logical" and "makes sense" and "has a plot" and "doesn't hurt my brain" in ADDITION to meaning "making money". And in defense of DIE HARD's Argyle, he does serve several plot purposes outside of comic relief. He's an excellent source of McClane's backstory, a possible lifeline early in the story, and - what can't possibly be said for any supporting Michael Bay character, EVER - his subplot pays off in the narrative.
