Editors Note
Note A lifelong bachelor struggles over whether to tell his best friend that his wife is cheating on him with another man in this comedy from director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer. Inseparable since college, best friends Ronny (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Kevin James) have recently gone into business together by starting their own engine design firm. Meanwhile, Ronny has begun dating Beth (Jennifer Connelly) and Nick is happily married to Geneva (Winona Ryder). The four friends couldn't be more happy together until the day that Ronny catches Geneva with another man (Channing Tatum), and tells her that he can't keep the news a secret from Nick. But when Geneva fires back that she will deny everything and shift the blame to Ronny, the decision over how to handle the sensitive situation becomes all the more difficult. Subsequently attempting to gather irrefutable evidence of the affair, Ronny uncovers a few secrets about his old pal Nick as well. And the timing couldn't be worse either, because in just a few days Ronny and Nick are scheduled to give the presentation that could make or break their company. With the weight of the truth bearing down on Ronny's conscience and no simple solution to his pressing dilemma, it all comes down to one crucial, defining moment that could make or break his friendship with Nick forever.
New York Times "Mr. Vaughn plays Ronny's agonizing indecision perfectly, throwing his large body into remarkably subtle postures of anxiety and doubt." 01/13/2011
Los Angeles Times "What THE DILEMMA ultimately does best is create a platform for Vaughn to drag that iconic character of his into full-blown adulthood. Grown-up is a good look on Vaughn." 01/14/2011
A.V. Club "THE DILEMMA is a wild ride....THE DILEMMA asks some compelling questions about what goes into a longstanding marriage..." 01/13/2011
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] bittersweet comedy-drama....It's always engaging..." 01/21/2011

ReviewSource New York Post
Review "The Dilemma" is not so much about what a world it might be if chicks (like the Latifah character) acted like dudes. It's more about the relentless chickification of dudes. Ronny really cares about his friend and wants to do the right thing - but secrets of his own keep popping up, too, and Nick's marriage turns out to be more complex than he'd guessed. Maybe he should stay clear of his friend's personal life, for his own sake. Yet he's helplessly sucked in, a victim of his own girly empathy...Thirty years ago, guys didn't hug unless it was a funeral or the end of the World Series. Ronny and Nick not only hug, they dance with each other with more spirit than they do with their wives. There is much to say about the love that, except in comedies, dare not speak its name - the kind between straight men. "The Dilemma" says enough of it to be interesting.
