The Break Up

June 17, 2006 - reviews

Will Vince Vaughn ever tire of the flat, stereotypical characters that he plays? I’ll admit the man has a gift, but I’d just like to see him extend his range a bit.

He and Jennifer Aniston have good on-screen chemistry, but not great. And certainly not worth all of the buzz surrounding this latest Hollywood power-couple. I would have thought the media would have learned their lesson with “Bennifer,” but in the end they’re all a bunch of whores and they’ll hype anything if there’s a ratings point to be had.

The movie is funny, but not on par with some of Vaughn’s other work (namely Wedding Crashers, which I just watched again on DVD). And Aniston holds her own, but I’m sure it’s hard for her to turn in a noticeable performance with Vaughn’s over-the-top ad-libbing sucking up all the oxygen on the set.

And how weird is it that Vince Vaughn and Vince D’Onofrio actually look like brothers?
