Vince Vaughn’s Dismal The Dilemma Opening Is Gay (But Not ‘Homosexual Gay’)

Aww, I bet you guys are really sad that after Universal Pictures’ marketing coup for The Dilemma — which got every media outlet talking about the, uh, script — the film is expected to earn just $20.7 million during its four-day opening weekend, earning it second place against The Green Hornet, but marking Vince Vaughn’s worst opening since 2001’s Domestic Disturbance. (No, I don’t remember what that movie was about, either.) The Ron Howard-directed film, which scored just 25 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, cost $70 million to make. Hey, at least Queen Latifah got paid!

      Vince Vaughn is a big, fat greasy pig. I hope he drowns in his chili cheese fries.

      Should we really be kicking these people when they’re down? I have nothing against Vince or the movie, even though it’s not my cup of tea. But to wish harm or destruction on them seems very cold and mean-spirited.

      It is obvious what kind of audience they are catering to. Pathetic.

      I don’t think that it is healthy for us to be happy about failure. I hope that their next film is better. And, yes, I hope that it becomes less and less acceptable to make fag jokes.

      am glad that the disgustingly homophobic Ron Howard has a flop on his hands.

      This the guy who cenmoored ‘A Beautiful Mind’ to delete any reference to the main character’s bisexuality; but who refused to remove a homophobic slur from ‘The Dilemma’ because that would be censorship.

      As for that greasy pig Vince Vaughn – allegedly he is a horrendous person to work with.

      So result all round!

      To wish failure on a person (or a movie, book, whatever) who’s done nothing to hurt you, but may have scratched your oh-so-thin skin, only succeeds in showing everyone what whiney primadonnas you think you are. Confront those who really hate you and your issues — Westboro Baptists, blacks, Muslims — and you’ll gain some genuine credibility as someone fighting for their cause. Otherwise it’s just more whining from the gays.

      @SouthSideShorty: You had me until the filthy racist comments. Go crawl back under your rock.

      No, there is nothing wrong in being glad that this movie seems to have failed. It’s karma.

      Vince Vaughn is famous for being an absolute asshole to work with; and Ron Howard has a history of homophobia. So if this fil is a failure then it is a good thing.

      I’m just playing a character who’s really glad these assholes are biting it big. The real me wouldn’t think about being so trivial.

      Judging by the number of lard asses in this film, I guess $69,000,000 went to catering.
