The Dilemma Reviews
01.14.11 by reelz
On paper The Dilemma looked pretty good. The trailer was sort of "meh." And now the critics have spoken, explaining why this Vince Vaughn comedy was released in early January.
"The dilemma of The Dilemma is that the conundrum at the center of the story isn't particularly hilarious..."
— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"The January movie burial ground claims another victim. RIP."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"...fundamentally misdirected -- or rather, directed in a style to be named later -- and all over the place in a way [director] Howard's films rarely are."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...(tries) extra hard to find humor in things that just aren't funny."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"...at 110 minutes, it's a long haul indeed; the stabs at seriousness deflate the comedy, and the feeble yuks trivialize the drama."
— Justin Chang, Variety
