ON PAPER, YOU CAN SORTA SEE HOW
THE DILEMMA 
MIGHT'VE LOOKED LIKE a POSSIBLE HIT: A "BROMANCE"-CUM-BUDDY MOVIE STARRING VINCE VAUGHN, KEVIN JAMES, OSCAR® WINNER JENNIFER CONNELLY, AGING KLEPTO-CUTIE WINONA RYDER and G.I. JOE HIMSELF, CHANNING TATUM (SEE BELOW). WHEN FORMER SIT-COM MOPPET TURNED OSCAR® WINNING DIRECTOR RON HOWARD AGREED to HELM the FILM, ITS FATE as a BOX OFFICE BEHEMOTH PROBABLY SEEMED SEALED... 

BUT ITS SCRIPT is by ALLAN LOEB, WHOSE PAST CREDITS INCLUDE THE SWITCH (WHICH WASN'T AS FUNNY AS ITS MAKERS THOUGHT IT WOULD BE) and WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS (WHICH WAS UTTERLY DEVOID of LAUGHS, ON PURPOSE). THEN the FILM's TRAILER STIRRED UP a STINK with a DECIDEDLY NON-P.C. JOKE ABOUT a PRIUS BEING UNAPPEALING BECAUSE IT "SEEMS GAY." FINISH with the FACT THAT the FILM CENTERS on TWO LIFELONG PALS, ONE of WHOM FACES "THE DILEMMA" of WHETHER or NOT to TELL the OTHER THAT HIS WIFE IS CHEATING on HIM (A PREMISE THAT in REAL LIFE IS FRAUGHT MORE with HEARTBREAK THAN HUMOR) and YOU HAVE 2011's FIRST CERTIFIED COMEDY DUD -- A $70 MILLION MOVIE THAT PROBABLY WON'T EVEN GROSS $50 MILLION. 

CRITICS HATED IT, AUDIENCES NEVER SHOWED UP and, BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, EVEN OUR OWN VOTING MEMBERS MAY NOT REMEMBER the FILM. 

NOW THAT's WHAT I'D CALL a DILEMMA!

TATUM: "What do you mean this is an even bigger 
sack o' dog dookie than G.I. JOE?!?!?"
