A-list actors Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn starred in the 2006 movie The Break-Up. In the movie, the pair portrayed committed couple Gary Grobowski and Brooke Meyers, who began dating after meeting at a baseball game and hit it off so well that, after a time, they began living together in a wonderful condo in Chicago. After spending quite a bit of time together Gary starts to feel as though Brooke is too controlling while Brooke starts to believe Gary is too immature, takes her for granted and refuses to seriously work on their relationship. Their relationship quickly dissolves into more fights and nitpicking than fun and love, and the couple decides to split and begins to argue over who gets to stay in the apartment, since neither one of them wants to move and leave it behind. They attempt to remain roommates for a while, but that arrangement also does not work. Brooke and Gary start to provoke one another in an attempt to make the other one leave, including attempts by Gary to turn the apartment into a messy bachelor pad and Brooke bringing dates home. The condo finally sells and Brooke and Gary are given two weeks to move, then both start really re-thinking their break-up. Both want to reconcile at different times; however, it never works out and Brooke finally leaves to travel in Europe. Classified as a romantic comedy-drama, the film was directed by Peyton Reed. Cast members with larger roles include Cole Hauser and Vincent D'Onofrio as Gary's brothers, Lupus and Dennis; Judy Davis as the owner of the art gallery Brooke manages; Joey Lauren Adams as Brooke's friend and relationship confidante; and Jon Favreau as Gary's best friend. Additional members of the cast include Jason Bateman, Justin Long, John Michael Higgins, Vernon Vaughn, Ann-Margret Olsson, Peter Billingsley, Mary-Pat Gree, Keir O'Donnell, Geoff Stults, Zack Shada and Brad Nelson.
