This weekend “The Switch,” starring Jennifer Aniston, will open in theaters and if early reviews are an indicator, Aniston has yet another flop on her hands.

Ticking off the names of guaranteed male money makers is easy: Will Smith, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Jim Carrey, and even behind-the-camera ...
