A more serious Vince Vaughn movie

  • Jun 13, 2011
Vince Vaughn is best known for guy comedies like Old School, but The Dilemma is a surprisingly mature comedy for him. Vaughn's character is forced to decide whether or not to tell his best friend that his wife is cheating on him (hence, the 'dilemma'). I'm not quite sure how much I like Vaughn and co-star Kevin James in a more serious, less silly comedy. I thought the plot actually did present the characters with interesting dilemmas. I found myself actually caring for Vaughn and Kevin James' characters more than I had in their other movies. They both do a pretty decent job in dramatic roles and exploring the emotional highs and lows of friendship. Still, the movie isn't funny. Not that the movie is bad, but it just isn't really a laugh-out-loud comedy. One almost gets the feeling that the movie would have been better off just not trying to be a comedy at all and instead being a movie about male friendship. Alas, I suspect the producers didn't think the movie would sell with Vaughn and James if it wasn't advertised as a comedy.
