Published Feb 19, 2007The timing of this DVD release couldnt be more perfect. Celebrity couple/The Break-Up stars Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn appear to be on the outs, but whether that is true or just a ploy to maintain their privacy, not even that slice of "coincidental timing can save this weak "rom-com. The couple play Gary and Brooke, who after falling in love, buy a condo and realise they actually arent made for each other but neither wants to give up the pad. Cue the laughs. But thats the thing: there arent many. With the exception of Jon Favreaus sideman role and John Michael Higginss flamboyance, whats left is a meandering relationship that becomes more annoying and less interesting as time passes. The biggest disappointment is that there was ample potential for humour. Vaughn is currently enjoying a hot comedic streak, thanks to frat pack comedies Old School, Dodgeball and Wedding Crashers. However, Reed simply wastes the actors talents, reducing him to a bitchy man-child with little to no likeability. Aniston, an obvious comedic talent as well, is also misused as the disapproving, fed-up girlfriend. In a nutshell, theres as little "com as there is "rom, which isnt how this film was marketed. Thankfully, the extras pick up the films slack, marginally. Vaughn and Anistons commentary obviously trounces Reeds lone go, and will satisfy anyone looking to experience their off-screen chemistry. Deleted scenes actually provide some context that makes them worth watching, but they dont save the film. The improv scene between Swingers buddies Vaughn and Favreau, however, is almost enough to recommend this DVD. A nice piece of off-the-cuff comedy from the pair, its a valuable extension of the films best scene that brings light to their great chemistry. Plus: "bus tour featurette, outtakes, more.
