I don’t often do this, but after I wrote this post for my other blog, I realized it’d be a perfect fit here, too. Here goes:
Sign me up for the Vince Vaughn fan club
Has anyone else seen “The Dilemma” yet? In it, Vince Vaughn plays a guy who discovers his best friend’s wife is cheating on him. Then he has to deal with his dilemma: To tell or not to tell.
Am I the only one who thinks Vince Vaughn is a great leading man?
“The Breakup”? Hilarious. “Wedding Crashers”? Heck, yeah. “Couples Retreat”? I could watch it over and over. “Four Christmases”? Yes, please — and I’ll take a couple more while we’re at it.
I love the fast-talking, mistake-prone, so-smart-yet-so-dumb, sweet, funny type of guy Vaughn seems to excel at portraying.
He may not be Brad-Pitt beautiful or Gerard Butler gorgeous, but he’s adorable in his own way. He’s more guy next door … the one the girl doesn’t realize she’s in love with until he’s dating someone else. Then she kicks herself ten ways to Sunday and embarks on a campaign to steal him away from the other woman who is, of course, clearly wrong for him.
Hmm … did I just come up with a story idea? I can work with that.
You never know … maybe I can talk Vaughn into playing the hero in one of my novels someday.
You’re nothing without your dreams, right? 😉
(Speaking of Gerard Butler, the movie trivia playing before the film started said he had a law degree. I did not know that … but I bet Kristan Higgins did. She’s always posting “Gerard Butler Grammar Quizzes” on the RWA newsletter editors’ loop.)
I’ve never been much a Vince Vaughn fan but maybe The Dilemma will change my mind. 😉 In that same category, I’d go with Jon Favreau a la Love & Sex.
I didn’t think I was, either … but it hit me hard during this movie. And then, as I was looking at photos online to find one to run with the post, I realized he really is cute in his own way.
(Plus, he struggles with his weight just like me … Google him and you get “Vince Vaughn weight” as a related search. He’s definitely been up and down.)
Loved Wedding Crashers. But while VV does play the bumbling sweet man really well, I get tired of seeing it after a while.
It might be interesting to check out some of his earlier stuff … He was in some football movie (but I can’t remember which one) and another movie where he wore a cowboy hat.
