A Quick Tip by Lopez15

  • Jun 4, 2011

Ron Howard's "The Dilemma" boasts an interesting premise, a great cast of talented actors but it ultimately falls flat on its face thanks to in part   to a horribly mired script and cheesy slapstick, dull moments and terribly overwritten scenes that drag this film down to the depths of movie hell. "The Dilemma" is a good-looking movie with good intentions and an idea but sad to say, with little wit, charm, style or frankly intelligence. "The Dilemma" is one of the worst films of the year and a comedy of such grueling proportions that it boggles the mind why such a talented group of actors and an Oscar winning director like Ron Howard would subject themselves to this kind of torture, or moviegoers for that matter.

With all due respect, I can't stand him I just think he is so annoying in everything he does. Even when he was on "The King of Queens".

I would suggest you give it a view to see it for yourself, but a word to the wise take breaks in between this film for the sake of your sanity. And the full work up is in the process as we speak.

I don't drink but the pizza could numb some of the pain, ah! Pizza. Pizza and all its cheesy goodness that can make a man feel like he is in heaven, even while he is being subjected to torture. I'll drop you a line when it is done.

This exactly what they meant by taking the good(Pizza) with the bad("The Dilemma", "Due Date", "Twilight" saga).

** out of ****     The trouble with comedy is that too often, people attempt to blend different styles. Only truly talented filmmakers can do that, and while comedy is pretty much the worse and blandest genre nowadays, which explains why so little GOOD filmmakers invest in such a genre picture. I was never impressed by Ron Howard aside from some of his earlier (or some of his modern) works. "The Dilemma", his newest "dilemma", pretty much calculates the ups-and-downs of Howard's …

1 star: The dilemma is that this film can't find one
You have been buddies with your best friend for the better part of twenty years; you trust each other more than anything trusts and rely on each other explicitly to help each other out whenever needed and back each other up whenever possible. You and your best friend work together and have a very successful business in the automotive industry and you love what you do more than anything else, but here is the dilemma. What if you found out that your best friend's wife was cheating …

Star Rating:         The Dilemma tells the story of a recovering gambler who, after discovering that his best friend’s wife is having an affair, falls victim to his own guilty conscience and ultimately loses himself in strange, obsessive behaviors. Many directors would have used this idea as the basis for a psychological thriller, but in the hands of Ron Howard, it has become a comedy. This is puzzling because the basic scenario is anything but funny, and parts …

It is really hard for me to put a finger on the film “The Dilemma”. It has a good premise; simple, but has something everyone can relate to. I mean, a problem where you saw your best friend’s heating wife making out with another man is a no brainer unless you have something that can hold you back from telling your best friend.      Vince Vaughn and Kevin James does make for a good ‘buddy’ pair, with Winona Ryder and Jennifer Connelly lending the …
