It's Vaughniston to the max on October 17 when The Break-Up comes to DVD!

Synopsis:

Pushed to the breaking-up point after their latest 'why can't you do this one little thing for me?' argument, art dealer Brooke (Aniston) calls it quits with her boyfriend, Gary (Vaughn), who hosts bus tours of Chicago. What follows is a series of remedies, war tactics, overtures and underminings suggested by the former couple's friends, confidantes and the occasional total stranger. When neither ex is willing to move out of the condo they used to share, the only solution is to continue living as hostile roommates until somebody caves. But somewhere between protesting the pool table in the living room, the dirty clothes stacked in the kitchen cupboards and the sports played at sleep-killing volume in the middle of night, Brooke begins to realize that what she may be really fighting for isn't so much the place but the person.

An elegant Chicago condo becomes a hilarious battleground in the war of the exes when the comedy blockbuster The Break-Up comes to DVD on October 17, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers) and Jennifer Aniston (Friends with Money) sizzle in this laugh-out-loud story of love gone wrong. A runaway box-office success that grossed over $118 million dollars, The Break-Up DVD offers even more non-stop fun and laughs with loads of deleted scenes, outtakes, as well as an alternate ending that puts The Break-Up in a whole new light! The DVD is priced at $29.98 SRP.

When art dealer Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) and Chicago bus tour guide Gary (Vince Vaughn) suddenly put an end to their two-year relationship, the joys of home ownership throw a monkey wrench into the split. The formerly happy couple wrangles for control of their jointly owned apartment, guided by well-meaning, but utterly wrongheaded advice of friends and family. Directed by Peyton Reed (Down with Love) and featuring a spectacular supporting cast including Joey Lauren Adams, Ann-Margret, Jason Bateman, Judy Davis, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jon Favreau, John Michael Higgins and Justin Long, The Break-Up delivers a fresh and funny twist on the age-old battle between the sexes.

Film critics across the country raved about The Break-Up. Jack Mathews of the New York Daily News proclaimed, "Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston give what may be the best performances of their careers." In addition to declaring the film "one of the best American comedies in years," Pete Hammond of Maxim magazine also added, "It's hilarious, honest and painfully funny." The Insider's Clay Smith thought the film was, "funny, smart and sexy" and that "Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn absolutely sizzle on screen!"
