A lifelong bachelor struggles over whether to tell his best friend that his wife is cheating on him with another man in this comedy from director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer. Inseparable since college, best friends Ronny (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Kevin James) have recently gone into business together by starting their own engine design firm. Meanwhile, Ronny has begun dating Beth (Jennifer Connelly) and Nick is happily married to Geneva (Winona Ryder). The four friends couldn't be more happy together until the day that Ronny catches Geneva with another man (Channing Tatum), and tells her that he can't keep the news a secret from Nick. But when Geneva fires back that she will deny everything and shift the blame to Ronny, the decision over how to handle the sensitive situation becomes all the more difficult. Subsequently attempting to gather irrefutable evidence of the affair, Ronny uncovers a few secrets about his old pal Nick as well. And the timing couldn't be worse either, because in just a few days Ronny and Nick are scheduled to give the presentation that could make or break their company. With the weight of the truth bearing down on Ronny's conscience and no simple solution to his pressing dilemma, it all comes down to one crucial, defining moment that could make or break his friendship with Nick forever.Read full review...
I enjoyed this movie, despite the slow start. The climax was reasonably well done, and was quite tense, without any obvious outcome. It also drew the story lines together, admittedly a little dubiously, but the plot wasn't by any means as disjointed as many of the reviews have suggested. It did end rather abruptly after the main plot finished, but there wasn't a great deal more that could have been done anyway.
It would, admittedly, have been better advertised as a drama than a comedy, though there were some funny moments. Kevin James and Vince Vaughn did well in more serious roles, though they were clearly trying to make the movie funnier.
So don't watch it with high expectations, and look at it as an amusing drama rather than as a comedy. It's not one to make you stop and think, but I thought it was good. In spite of all the drawbacks.Read full review...
Very Funny Movie!
VERY FUNNY!!! The story line was alot better than I thought it would be. It keeps your attention all the way through as you watch the disastrous and hilarious lies Vince Vaughn's character must tell and the consequences from telling his best friend, Kevin James, that his wife, Winona Rider, is cheating on him with a VERY tatted out Channing Tatum. All in all, this movie is cute, funny and raises a very hard to answer question! I would recommend this to my friends!Read full review...
The Dilemma (DVD, 2011)
I bought: The Dilemma on the fly while I was viewing new movies listed on eBay. I was pleased with it for the fact it delivers a good moral evaluation of the story in regards to the characters.
>There was a couple of times the movie seemed to get lost within the morality, but overall, it is very enjoyable!Read full review...
