It falls short of true greatness because they both still have shirts on.

@2 "It falls short of true greatness because they both still have shirts on."

I'm sorry Pope Buck I, that is incredibly close, but our judges were looking for pants... The correct answer is ""It falls short of true greatness because they both still have pants on."

It would be a good poster if the background had a Mexican or Peruvian or Guatemalan flag, and some native Americans were hitting the stars on their heads with monkey wrenches. Plus puppies! Everyone wuvs puppies!

Remember the days when Mark Wahlberg was sorta attractive? Age isn't something that is going to be kind to him.

And Dwayne? There is nothing natural about his body. I'd even guess he has implants in his cock

I didn't know Mark Wahlberg was black... and Dwayne Johnson is looking remarkably pale these days too. Weird. You'd almost think they switched the names on the poster.

The greatest movie poster ever was the poster for The Exorcist - understated yet very chilling.

@10, 12: You know, I see that all the time, and I think it is some kind of stylistic/traditional thing. But I have no idea.

I see it way to often for it to be coincidental mistakes over and over.

Who is the target demographic here? As a straight chick, I find pumped up men repulsive. Are they gay icons? Are they men's men?

@14 It looks like a straight guy buddy movie from an era when no one knew gay people existed. I have a hard time believing they don't know how queer it is (that tagline is almost too much), but at the same time it appears to be earnest and completely lacking in any sense of self-awareness. I don't get it either.

@10, 12, 13. How the names are displayed is not meant to be a descriptive caption. 'Top billing' is a time honored practice where the performer with the greater earning potential is listed first in all credits.

"Their American Dream is bigger than yours"? Are they talking about houses?

These fellows look like receptacles for feminine hygiene products to me.

No Channing Tatum? This looks like something he should be in, too.
