  • Critic Reviews for The Dilemma All Critics (161) | Top Critics (33) | Fresh (39) | Rotten (122) | DVD (1) As cumbersome and drawn out as a slowly deflating tire, this cinematic collision between Vaughn's celebrated funny-surly persona and Howard's earnest pedigree is a bore -- and a serious miscalculation.

  • It is a dilemma to review Dilemma. First of all, the film suffers from an identity crisis. It markets itself as a comedy and stars two actors whose previous work comes almost exclusively from that genre. However, it's not a comedy. It's about 15% comedy and 85% drama.
