The Break-Up ★★ 2006 (PG-13)

Gary (Vaughn) and Brooke (Aniston) are a completely incompatible couple (he's boorish, she's high-strung) who own a Chicago condo that comes into bitter dispute when they split. Since neither will willingly leave, they seek to drive the other crazy enough so they'll bail…as everyone else must watch and suffer. There's not much romance or comedy to be seen and it's definitely NOT a date movie—unless you're planning a break-up of your own. 106m/C DVD, HD DVD . US Jennifer Aniston, Vince Vaughn, Joey Lauren Adams, Judy Davis, Cole Hauser, Jon Favreau, Ann-Margret, Justin Long, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jason Bateman, Peter Billingsley, John Michael Higgins, Ivan Sergei; D: Peyton Reed; W: Jeremy Garelick, Jay Lavender; C: Eric Alan Edwards; M: Jon Brion.
