The Dilemma (2011)

By Ahmed Al Kiremli

Movie Story

Two best friends from college try to solve their financial issues by getting involved in the development of a new car engine at a major car company. In the middle of their project, one of them finds that his best friend’s wife is cheating, and then the dilemma starts.

Ahmed Al Kiremli Opinion

The story is very interesting and elicits many different thoughts and ideas, but director Ron Howard failed to take advantage of the interesting story to make a stand-out movie. Many scenes were unnecessary, and many boring scenes affected the quality of comedy. I wasn’t expecting that from the director of the great movie A Beautiful Mind (2001). The acting was not really convincing from most actors. The director has done so many other good movies but couldn’t deliver in this one, and the script also was too weak to make the movie really funny.
The movie in general was not good. Many big names participated, but that didn’t really help with the poor script, acting, and directing. There weren’t more than five scenes that you could really laugh at. You won’t feel sorry about wasting your money after seeing the movie, but it’s not really worth watching.
