Directed by
Peyton Reed

Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) and Gary (Vince Vaughn) are complete opposites, but this doesn't stop them falling in love and buying a Chicago condo together. It all seems like a pretty picture, until the day Gary doesn't buy enough lemons for their dinner party.

A petty argument escalates into a full-scale break-up and, when neither of them gives up their apartment, it becomes a war of attrition. In the red corner, Gary parties in the living room with hookers and his pals; in the blue corner, Brooke dates a string of gorgeous men and parades around naked.

This film was surrounded by press coverage well before it came out, as it closely followed Jennifer Aniston's real-life break-up with husband Brad Pitt. It is also where she found solace in the arms of co-star Vince Vaughn, who she is still dating now (or is she?). There is great chemistry between the two, even when firing barbed comments and acid insults at each other, and this movie is definitely a refreshing antidote to identikit date movies.
