Culture: Ron Howard: The “electric cars are gay” line stays in “The Dilemma”

  • It is a slight moment in ‘The Dilemma’ meant to demonstrate an aspect of our lead character’s personality, and we never expected it to represent our intentions or the point of view of the movie or those of us who made it.
  • Director Ron Howard • Explaining why the gay joke made in “The Dilemma” stays in, despite the uproar against gay jokes in general at the moment. Howard feels the joke is important to understanding Vince Vaughn’s character, and that his film is getting lots of negative attention at the moment because of the timing of it, in which Anderson Cooper seems to be taking on gay bullying as a personal crusade of his. (Cooper called out the movie’s trailer for the use of the phrase.) While it’s controversial, we kind of agree with Howard. Comedy is a slippery slope and not one that should be so strongly affected by PC concerns. source
