The Dilemma trailer, so what?

JenniferConnelly.jpgOh dear me, I wonder if the only thing that could save this film is the fact that Ron Howard directed it and it stars Jennifer Connelly and Winona Ryder? Mind you that raises the question of why they would want to appear in something like this.

It also stars Channing Tatum, Vince Vaughn, Kevin James and Queen Latifah, but despite all that it looks dreadful. Perhaps I'm just watching it the wrong way, maybe it isn't a comedy at all.

Here's the blurb for The Dilemma because I can't bring myself to write it out:

Since college, confirmed bachelor Ronny (Vaughn) and happily married Nick (James) have been through thick and thin. Now partners in an auto design firm, the two pals are vying to land a dream project that would launch their company. With Ronny's girlfriend, Beth (Connelly), and Nick's wife, Geneva (Ryder), by their sides, they're unbeatable. But Ronny's world is turned upside down when he inadvertently sees Geneva out with another man and makes it his mission to get answers. As the amateur investigation dissolves his world into comic mayhem, he learns that Nick has a few secrets of his own. Now, with the clock ticking and pressure mounting on the biggest presentation of their careers, Ronny must decide what will happen if he reveals the truth to his best friend.

Yeah, blah blah blah....oh it's got Jennifer Connelly though, and she's gorgeous. Plus Wynona Ryder and directed by Ron Howard – and that's pretty much how the first five or six lines of the blurb go before they start telling you about the “story”.

Here's the trailer, see what you think, I'm thinking disaster.
