Universal has released a movie trailer for Ron Howard‘s new comedy The Dilemma, which stars Vince Vaughn as a guy who discovers that the wife (Winona Ryder) of his best friend (Kevin James) is cheating on him (with a guy played by Channing Tatum) and is unsure how he should break the news. And, to clear up confusion, The Dilemma was once called What You Don’t Know, and Cheaters before that. Jennifer Connelly also plays the girlfriend of Vaughn’s character. The comedy is written by Allan Loeb, the screenwriter of 21, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and The Switch. Looks a bit too generic for my tastes. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump.

Vince Vaughn and Kevin James headline an all-star comedy from director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer about a man who finds out that what you don’t say to a friend is just as important as what you do. Jennifer Connelly, Winona Ryder, Channing Tatum and Queen Latifah join them in The Dilemma, 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 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 how and when he will reveal the truth to his best friend.
The Dilemma will be released on January 14th, 2011.
