I finally saw the movie “The Dilemma.”
I’d been dying to see this movie because Vince Vaughn stars in it and Vince and I, well, we go back a long way.
Actually, Vince, my sisters, and I go back a long way.
My sisters became fans at different times and for different reasons.
My middle sister, who has a thing for tall men, became a fan when she found out he was six feet five.
My younger sister, who has a thing for bad boys, became a fan when she discovered he’d been in a bar fight in North Carolina back in 1998.
I, on the other hand, have been a Vince fan since forever.
My reason? I have a thing for funny men.
Vince has tickled my funny bone with performances in movies such as “Old School,” “Dodgeball,” “Wedding Crashers,” “Fred Clause,” “Four Christmases,” “Couples Retreat,” and “The Break Up.”
Now, with his latest performance as Ronny Valentine in “The Dilemma,” he makes me wish he were my valentine.
Because what woman can resist a funny guy?
I think I speak for most women when I say a sense of humor in a man is priceless.
He can be as good looking as Gerard Butler, but if he doesn’t have a sense of humor, he may as well be as ugly as Marilyn Manson.
Men with a sense of humor have an attraction that makes me sit up and take notice.
Take Danny Devito and Woody Allen, for example.
Both ugly as can be and yet, were either of them to ask me out for coffee, I’d go in a heartbeat.
There’s no way I’d pass up the opportunity to be in the company of a man who can make me laugh till I have tears streaming down my face.
And both of these gents have the ability to do this.
But back to Vince.
What also makes this man a charmer, is that he appears to be quite the conversationalist.
After all, there’s no way you can chatter that much as a character, unless you also do so in real life.
Vince is not only a smooth talker, but has the ability to articulate in such a way, he has you laughing the moment he opens his mouth.
And isn’t that what women want?
Don’t we all want a man who has the ability to make us smile, giggle, and laugh?
Don’t we want the certainty that going out with a funny man practically guarantees laughter will be part of our night?
I, for one. cannot resist a funny man.
He doesn’t have me at “Hello.”
He has me the moment he elicits a chuckle.
Good looks, athletic prowess, the ability to dress stylishly, excellent physique, good hair, taller than six feet, good manners, and a deep voice all give a man a head start.
But a sense of humor?
Well, that has him crossing the finish line in no time.
In all reality, Vince could be in better shape.
His hair line seems to be receding and he always looks like he’s been up all night.
Yet none of this makes him less handsome.
Cause he’s funny. That’s why.
And cause he has deep set eyes, ruby red lips and he’s tall, dark, and handsome.
