The Dilemma

Vince Vaughn and Kevin James headline this comedy from director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13).

Buddies since college, confirmed bachelor Ronny (Vaughn) and happily married Nick (James) are partners in an auto design firm and about to land a dream project to launch their company. With Ronny’s girlfriend, Beth (Jennifer Connelly), and Nick’s wife, Geneva (Winona Ryder), by their sides, they’re on top of the world. So what's the dilemma? Ronny inadvertently sees Geneva out with another man (Channing Tatum) and begins an amateur investigation to find out what's going on. Find out he does and the news isn't good. With the clock ticking on the biggest presentation of their careers, Ronny's left to decide if he should tell his pal the truth about his cheating wife...

Not a particularly funny movie. Indeed, the true dilemma of this misguided seriocomedy lies in the filmmakers' confusion as to whether they're making a side-splitting bromance (nope) or an unsparing, warts-and-all look at screwed-up relationships (sort of).

The Dilemma is so tone deaf to its themes that it thinks it's a light and slightly rude Vince Vaughn movie. It's not.

Ho Hum

Really wasn't that funny...if it was trying to be a comedy...and not very believable if it was trying to be a drama. I'm sorry, but Vince Vaughn needs to find another character...seriously, that fast talking everyman that he plays in all his movies is fast becoming a pain to watch. I was bored after 60min...so at nearly 2 hours, it was a hard watch.

What a let down

Like InterblagNag, I went to see this because it had Ron Howard's name next to "Directed By". Sure, Vince Vaughan, Jennifer Connolly, Kevin James and Winona Ryder don't hurt, but Ron Howard AND a good crew of actors... should be cool. But no. You've seen Vince Vaughan play this character in the exact same way a million times by now. Jennifer Connolly is...
