Director Ron Howard returns to comedy with “The Dilemma,” a genre that he hasn’t touched since 1999’s “Edtv,” and admittedly his comedy chops are a little rusty. However, the film sports a solid cast of Vince Vaughn and Kevin James in the lead bro-mance, Wynona Ryder and Jennifer Connely as the female cause/solutions of all their problems, and two exceptional comedic side roles played by Channing Tatum and Queen Latifah.
Tatum plays Zip, the tattooed bad boy that Wynona Ryder’s character is sleeping with, who turns out to a very strange, but sensitive individual. Queen Latifah plays Susan Warner, a GM executive who makes the guys extremely nervous with her enthusiastic talk of “lady wood.” I really didn’t expect to like “The Dilemma,” but it was the smaller parts like Latifah’s that warmed me to the film, and so this clip, where Queen Latifah introduces herself to the guys, is the Video of the Day, embedded above.
