The Dilemma (2011)
I give it a big "meh."
Where to begin? Let's start with the good because that list is marginally shorter.
1. Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Connolly was actually a great pairing. I thought they had great chemistry together and they were interesting to watch. You really believed these two could have been a real couple. 2. Vince and Kevin made good friends. They played well off of each other and they really did seem like buddies. 3. Queen Latifah was hilarious if not overly random in her role.
Here endth the list of good. Now on to the bad and ugly.
1. Winona Ryder and Kevin James. Really? Did anyone see this couple and believe that? Maybe it's just me but that pairing was too fanciful even for the movies. 2. Winona Ryder and Channing Tatum's kiss. That scene was so incredible awkward and the slowing down of the camera speed really didn't help. It looked awkward and was just uncomfortable to watch. 3. The screen writing left much to be desired. It dragged scenes out and conversations to the point of banging your head on the table, like I get it Vince Vaughn you're talking about Winona in your inappropriate anniversary speech. Thank you. And 20 minutes later the oaf is still talking. 4. It was slow. It had a lot of down periods where it dragged and just ugh. I kind of just wanted to take a nap and have my friends wake me up when it was over. 5. Channing Tatum's general existence in this film is nauseating. The kid can't act and I think the world just needs to accept that. The emotional bad boy who cries at random intervals? It was awkward and unnecessary and he really wasn't showcasing any kind of talent because hey there's not any there to begin with.
All and all I just felt like the movie missed the boat. It could have been a nice dramedy if it wanted to be, but it just fell short on both the comedy and the drama side. It's like it wanted to be both and couldn't decide and what you got was this vomit like version of the two.
I give it a big "meh." You see it, you don't. This water makes no splashes in my life as a film lover.
