Boring. Vince Vaughn phoned it in.

Vince is a terrific actor. Huge Kevin James fan as well. I don't recall laughing much; there was a lot of suspense.

There is a lot more to this movie than meets the eye. If you are looking for a mindless slapstick comedy, you will be disappointed. While there are some funny scenes, there is a good, solid message about truth, honesty and friendship.

Washington Post
Vaughn is the film equivalent of a well-known novelist that no longer gets a good edit. He has the charismatic salesguy shtick down, but he needs a director who can rein him in. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Ms. Ryder, playing the least sympathetic character with unflinching dignity and candor, is in many ways the reason The Dilemma works as well as it does. Full Review
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
Despite bursts of hilarity and an A-list cast, this is a dark, difficult, weirdly existential film - like some seriocomic spin on "I and Thou." Full Review
Betsy Sharkey
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. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The Dilemma downshifts from slapstick to melodrama and back so abruptly that it is at times jarring. Full Review
