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!
