"The Dilemma" movie stars Vince Vaughn ("Couples Retreat," "Wedding Crashers") and Kevin James ("Paul Blart: Mall Cop," "Grown Ups") in an all-star comedy from the hit filmmaking team of director Ron Howard ("Frost/Nixon," "The Da Vinci Code") and producer Brian Grazer ("A Beautiful Mind," "American Gangster") about a man who finds out that what you don't say to a friend is just as important as what you do.

Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly ("A Beautiful Mind," "He's Just Not That Into You"), Winona Ryder ("Star Trek," "Mr. Deeds"), Channing Tatum ("Dear John," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra") and Queen Latifah ("Hairspray," "Chicago") join them in a story of how far you can bend a brotherly bond before it snaps.

Since college, confirmed bachelor Ronny (Vaughn) and happily married Nick (James) have been through thick and thin. Now partners in their own company, B&V Engine Design, the two pals are vying to land a dream project that would put their company on the map. With Ronny's girlfriend, Beth (Connelly), and Nick's wife, Geneva (Ryder), by their sides, the pair is unbeatable.

That is, until Ronny's world is turned upside down when he inadvertently sees Geneva in the arms of another man (Tatum), shattering the sheen of his best friend's perfect marriage. Ronny makes it his mission to get answers before he tells Nick the news that no one ever thinks he will have to hear.

As his amateur investigation dissolves his world into comic mayhem, Ronny learns that Nick has a few secrets of his own. Now, with the clock ticking and pressure mounting from automotive consultant Susan Warner (Latifah) on the biggest presentation of their careers—and Ronny's own relationship deteriorating by the day—he must decide how and when he will reveal the truth to his best friend.

"The Dilemma" is a creative collaboration among Universal Pictures, Imagine Entertainment and Wild West Picture Show. Written by Allan Loeb ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," "21") and directed by Oscar winner Ron Howard, the comedy is produced by Academy Award winner Brian Grazer, Howard and Vince Vaughn.

On the technical side, the team has assembled a top-notch crew that reunites many Howard and Grazer film regulars—including cinematographer Salvatore Totino ("Cinderella Man," "The Da Vinci Code"), Emmy Award-winning costume designer Daniel Orlandi ("Cinderella Man," "The Da Vinci Code"), the Academy Award-winning editing team of Mike Hill and Dan Hanley ("Apollo 13," "A Beautiful Mind") and Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer ("Backdraft," "The Da Vinci Code"). Longtime Vaughn collaborator Daniel Clancy ("The Break-Up," "Fred Claus") joins them as production designer for the comedy. The executive producers of "The Dilemma" are Todd Hallowell ("Frost/Nixon," "A Beautiful Mind"), Victoria Vaughn ("Couples Retreat," "The Break-Up") and Kim Roth ("Inside Man," "Insomnia").
