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.

  • ewe

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

  • Fitz

    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.

  • Franky

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

  • David

    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.

  • RomanHans

    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.

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones

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

  • Jase

    I stopped watching Vince Vaughn films after his remake of Psycho
