The Dilemma

The Dilemma: bang in the middle of designing their ‘non gay’ electric car Ronny sees his best friend’s wife kissing another guy – but should he tell him? Jennifer Connelly and Channing Tatum. Well, that’s the good stuff covered! I’d genuinely go as far as saying that everything else about the film is nothing short of deplorable and that there’s not one single feature that makes it worthy of an appeal. The story is boring. The script is predictable and awful. Shit, even the poster (two airbrushed-yet-still-out-of-shape middle-aged men) reeks of complacency. The leads – Vaughn and James – force out the most lackluster and pedestrian performances I’ve seen in all my days. Given the choice rather watch the Nelly and Kelly’s Dilemma on repeat for two hours than a single second of this again. The only truly enjoyable thing about watching this is that it’s so mind-meltingly boring that – by default – you’ll undoubtedly resort to simply thinking up a huge list of nasty things you’d do to Jennifer Connelly. Maybe it’s because I’m not a middle-aged, mid-life-crisis, everyman (or whatever) but this honestly didn’t push a single button of mine. As dull, confused and bloated as the two leading men.

Score: 1/10

    This movie sure looks terrible, and unfortunately I saw a lot of advertising for it here in Chicago — I’m guessing because Vince Vaughn lives here. Kudos to you for actually making it through this garbage.

    Thank you for watching this so my assumptions could be made concrete without actually having to see it myself. You’ve done a service to all film bloggers.

    I saw this and I didn’t dislike this as much as others had but for me, I just thought it was a weird little film that had better dramatic moments than actually comedic. The cast also does very well with the characters also. Good review, check out mine when you can!

    Thank you for your review I hate watching movies that are supposed to be funny but turn out to be crap so thank you for warning us!

    Jennifer Connelly astounds me. She’s a fabulous dramatic actress who apparently is desperate to be a rom-com actress. And it just doesn’t work. Movies like this and “He’s Just Not That Into You” are so far beneath her it’s ridiculous.
