Like Bruce Hornsby once so eloquently put it, that's just the way it is, folks. You had to learn sometime.
Don't believe us? Here are 20 not-so-subtle examples of phallic movie stills that will have you saying to yourself, "Wow, I didn't realize that Jean-Claude Van Damme with a Jheri curl could get any creepier."
'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' (2013)
"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" opened big this weekend, bringing in $51.7 million over the extended 5-day holiday frame and racking up a very healthy $132 million worldwide in its debut. So what do all those numbers mean, exactly? Well, according to Variety, they mean that Paramount has already decided to go ahead and start production on "G.I. Joe 3."

That was the battle cry at theaters around the country this weekend, as "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" dominated the box office, earning an estimated $41.2 million according to Film.com. That figure rises to $51.7 million with Wednesday and Thursday figures added in.
"The Host," meanwhile, fell flat on its face as fans of Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight" franchise apparently could not care less about aliens (or movies without Taylor Lautner's abs and Robert Pattinson's hair). With just $11 million in the bank, "The Host" only managed a distant sixth place debut.
The news was much better for "Tyler Perry's Temptation," which debuted in third with a strong $22.3 million opening. For a full look at the box office top ten, including figures for returning hits "The Croods" and "Olympus Has Fallen," head to Film.com.

Greetings from the apocalypse! I gave up hunting for Cadbury Creme Eggs on my front lawn for Lent, so this Easter holiday comes as a huge relief. Let's celebrate this holiest of weekends with a story featuring death and glorious resurrection … of Hasbro toy characters. Get More »
Not every movie and TV character-related action figure is a work of art. In fact, some are downright disastrous. But every once in a while, a master toymaker comes along and creates an action figure that bears an uncanny resemblance to its actual on-screen thespian counterpart. As we anticipate a whole new line of swivel-arm battle-gripped warriors with the release of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (that look a bit like Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum), here are 18 action figures that are maybe even a little too good.
Bruce Campbell as "Evil Dead" hero Ashley J. Williams, S-Mart Employee and Demon-Wrecker. Hail to the King, baby.
"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is opening this week, and we can't wait to finally see some of our favorite actors play some of our favorite childhood characters, including Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, Channing Tatum as Duke, Ray Park as Snake-Eyes and Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye.
The whole thing has us nostalgic for our younger years, which has us thinking about our old "G.I. Joe" action figure collection, which has us imagining ... well, what if our old toys came to life, "Indian in the Cupboard" style, and starred in the movie?
It'd be the first movie with swivel-arm battle grip, that's what.

He's walked tall, been cool and felt the need for speed in "Faster" and "Fast Five." Now, 2013 is truly the Year of the Rock, with the WWE Champion appearing in no less than five feature films.
We begin this week with the release of "Snitch," in which he plays the greatest dad in the world. Five weeks later, he'll be fighting for freedom in the "G.I. Joe" sequel (March 29), and four weeks after that he'll be robbing from the rich in Michael Bay's "Pain and Gain." (April 26). That's not all — four weeks after that, he'll be feeling that need for speed again with "Fast & Furious 6" (May 24). You'd think he'd take a vacation after all that, but no, he'll also be investigating an armored car heist in "Empire State," which will probably hit theaters this fall.
Let's get the Year started with hotness, shall we?
"Texas Chainsaw 3D" is 2013's inaugural sequel in a year chock full of them (29 in all). With this much franchise volume in one year, it's good to keep some perspective in terms of which series we're primed for ... and which ones shouldn't have had a first movie to begin with.
