Gen X Guilty Pleasure:
"GI Joe: Retaliation
(June 29). Yes, it's true: People 30-54 make up the biggest proportion
of the sequel's online searches on Yahoo!. The first outing wasn't exactly embraced
for its plot, but there have been murmurings of lessons learned. The (new) director John Chu actually played with the plastic soldiers
so that must mean something. Regardless, the man-candy aplenty returns
with Bruce Willis, the Rock, and Channing Tatum (who curiously
counter-programmed himself with his stripper movie, "Magic Mike,"
opening the same day).
