Format: DVD
Rumour has it that 'Rumor Has It' is a pretty good film. This will by no means be an Oscar contender, but as a pleasant diversion on a weekend afternoon, or possibly as a date movie (for those who still go on dates), this could be a winning movie. Jennifer Aniston, late of 'Friends', plays a role that is in many ways reminiscent of the Rachel role - she is a transplanted New Yorker, returning home to L.A. (actually, Pasadena, which becomes a running joke) with her as-yet-unannounced fiancé to attend her younger sister's wedding. We learn all of this in the first few minutes, possibly before the credits are done scrolling on the screen - the frenetic pace of 'Friends' is still here.
Rumour has it that there was a family in Pasadena that the film 'The Graduate' is based upon - Sarah (Anniston) fixates upon the idea that this may be her family. She questions her grandmother (Shirley MacLaine, but don't call her grandmother), who tells of a possible affair her mother had with a playboy before her marriage (Kevin Costner, now a dot-com mega-millionaire). Sarah goes off without her fiancé in search of her mother's past, but finds a past of her own, of a sort.
Lots of twists and turns in the film have the characters racing up and down the coast of California in search of the past, the future, and the truth, which ends up being both expected and unexpected in this complicated but easily-followed plot.
There aren't major effects and major surprises here. The situational comedy is very much in keeping with an extended version of a comfortable television show, even with the star power of MacLaine and Costner backing Anniston up. The writing is serviceable with occasional flashes of true wit, and the pace of the film is even and pleasant. In all, this is a good film, well worth seeing for a bit of entertainment. Director Rob Reiner does have a talent for good films, and this is one of them.

Format: DVD
I found this film more sad than funny. I suppose it is clever to do a comedy based on the so-called inspiration of the book and movie The Graduate. Yet, seeing the Jennifer Aniston character not only puts down her family, but also betrays her fiancé by having sex with an older man whom she knew had slept with her mother and grandmother, and this is the real kicker, who may or may not have been her biological father, conveniently believing him when he tells her he was always infertile. The film seems to gloss over this dysfunctional behaviour as some kind of joke, when in fact what we are dealing with is a woman with a very warped moral compass.

There are some amusing moments, but most of the time this film is dull and annoying, especially when the so-called comedy is presented in a forced manner. Particularly annoying is Shirley MacLaine's character, who the film attempts to portray as eccentrically funny, yet in reality is a rude bully without any social grace whatsoever. A truly repulsive character rather than a funny one. In respect to Kevin Costner, his role is so one dimensional that Costner almost appears to be sleep walking through this movie by playing Kevin Costner.

I would never recommend this film, even for Jennifer Aniston fans.

The ever-lovable and lovely Jennifer Aniston is great in this romantic comedy. She plays the part of Sarah Huffinger, an aspiring journalist who isn't sure what she wants from life. She's engaged to a nice young man, but her plans go awry when she goes back home for her sister's wedding. She meets a billionaire, played by Kevin Costner, who sets her life in an uproar when he reveals secrets about her family that confuse her even more. Will these secrets interfere in her upcoming plans to marry her young man? Will Sarah finally understand what really happened to her mother? Where does her grandmother fit into the scenario? And what does a popular book written by her mother's college friend have to do with Sarah's decisions?

A pro at scene-stealing, Shirley MacLaine plays the part of Sarah's feisty grandmother to perfection. With such an all-star cast, directed by Rob Reiner, this movie is sure to be very popular. It has all the right ingredients: romance, comedy, and plenty of drama.

Format: DVD
Sarah Huttinger (Jennifer Aniston) suspects that her granny, Katharine Richelieu (Shirley MacLaine) is Mrs. Robinson; Coo coo ca-choo. To make things worse this leads her to believe she may be the offspring of a different union (the timing was right).

The film is about Sarah's search for the truth and the people she encounters.

People watched this for different treasons some watched for Jennifer Aniston of "Office Space" fame. Others said "who is Jennifer I am watching for Shirley MacLaine. Still others were intrigued with where the story was going. They used ancient phone technology to give the film a period piece feel.

In the end the presentation was trite and forced with little chemistry or surprise.

Rumor Has It March 30 2008
By Kelly - Published on
Format: DVD
The Graduate is a classic cult film, and since this movie was based on it, I was hoping for the best, but not expecting much. I was never more wrong! Jennifer Aniston was refreshing, but I had dry heaves when she slept with a man her mother and grandmother did especially when she thought at first he could be her father. That is just not entertaining in any situation. Kevin Costner was good in his role, but the ewwww factor was too much. Mark Ruffalo gave probably his best performance to date. The most surprising performance was from Shirley MacLaine, and she was absolutely fabulous. She held her own in every scene. It didn't matter who she shared screen time with, she stole the limelight.

"Rumor Has It" Perpetuates A Gender Double Standard Asking You to Embrace A Character That You Would Loathe If It Were A Man Jan. 29 2007
By K. Harris - Published on
Format: DVD
I know that the critical reception to "Rumor Has It" was very chilly, but something about the idea of the film really appealed to me. The concept, the plot conceit, is a genuinely clever notion. Being a fan of "The Graduate," I was interested to see how well they would integrate the "characters" of that film with the "real life" counterpoints in this film. I mean, come on, Shirley MacLaine representing Mrs. Robinson and Kevin Costner as Ben Braddock--seems like a great idea! But, alas, when all is said and done--an amusing and well conceived setup did not equal a satisfying movie experience, for me.

Jennifer Aniston returns to her Pasadena homestead with her new fiance, played by Mark Ruffalo. Plagued with doubts about her engagement, and seemingly disengaged from any real affection for her own family, she hears a rumor that leads her to suspect that the book and film of "The Graduate" were based on her deceased mother's experiences. Confirming that her grandmother (MacLaine) was indeed the "Mrs. Robinson" character, she deduces that her mother had a fling prior to marrying her father. Thus, with the notion that she might be the daughter of this man--she sets off to find the truth. Encountering Costner, as the potential daddy and "Ben Braddock" character, she discovers truths about herself and her family.

All of this plays out very routinely, but the supporting actors are engaging and comfortable. It's always great to see MacLaine, but she offers nothing new or inventive in this performance--it's the standard brassy MacLaine persona we've come to expect. Costner continues to embrace his middle-aged status and has, thus, developed into a far more interesting actor than he used to be. (But for a more nuanced and astute role, check him out in "The Upside of Anger" with the luminous Joan Allen.) And Mark Ruffalo, a great serious actor, continues to play lightly as a romantic leading man. Recently cast with Witherspoon, Garner, and now Aniston in lightweight fluff--I do miss the more challenging roles he used to take on.

But it is Aniston's character, to me, that is a despicable movie creation--one that I've seen all too frequently, but this one is supposed to be endearing. Born into a life of privilege, she has accomplished nothing in her 30+ years and has become a self-involved and unpleasant "Woman-child." She floats through her sister's wedding as if it's all some great inconvenience. She doesn't think twice about mistreating a man who loves her. She never acts on anything that doesn't blatantly promote her own self-interest. I'm just so tired of it--it's not charming. Don't get me wrong--there are plenty of "Man-child" movies too (more so, even) about men who still act as if they were adolescent. But, think about those movies--the "Man-child" is an object of scorn and ridicule, we laugh at him. But "Rumor Has It" doesn't ask you to laugh at Aniston's social ineptitude and selfishness--far from it--we're supposed to embrace it and identify with her as a real person. Well, frankly, I wished everyone in Aniston's life would abandon her because of her behavior so that she'd learn to grow up. But, of course, this is wish fulfillment--and she learns about life while retaining everything of value--there is never any consequence to being a nasty person.

This gender double standard really bothers me, and the fact that I genuinely disliked the central character--obviously, I didn't care for this film. Otherwise it would have been a fairly generic picture, but these two things caused me to feel strongly and negatively. I am giving it an extra star for a good idea, but unfortunately, it didn't pan out for me. KGHarris, 01/07.

Hey Hey Hey July 13 2012
By Chad Taylor - Published on
The premise: a young woman discovers that Mrs. Robinson and Elaine from the book and movie The Graduate were based on her grandmother and her mother. She goes on a quest to find this man who she thinks is her father, and when he says he's not she promptly sleeps with him because he's so charming. So what do we learn from this, that grandmother, mother and daughter can have a hot fling with the same guy? Who writes this garbage? This is just asinine and incredibly sick. This makes no sense.

Rumor has had it... May 30 2006
By C. Mendoza-tolentino - Published on
Format: DVD
The movie, with all of the big name talent behind it - Jennifer Anniston et al (and even George Clooney as one of the producers) - certainly was a let down. For anyone who is familiar with The Graduate (and who isn't these days), the movie will pique your interest if only because it revisits much of the myth behind the movie and whether or not what took place was based on a true 'rumor' if you will. The movie seemed to bank on too many cliches, especially those we find in the romantic comedy genre and the end, where Mark Ruffalo is waiting for Jennifer outside the elevator after she leaves his apartment in tears is as done and as flat as a climactic scene can get. Go out and rent something else because this movie will surely disappoint you.

Almost unbearable... July 10 2006
By ElaineReads - Published on
Format: DVD
Rumor Has It:

Do you ever get the feeling, when you are watching a movie, that you just wish they'd get to the point already? Well, I definitely got that feeling when I was watching this movie.

I heard and read the bad reviews that this movie got. But still, I had to see for myself. The beginning, while Jennifer Aniston's character is telling about the history of the story of the Graduate, got me to thinking that I must have read wrong because it seemed like it was going to be a pretty good movie. Then the movie actually started and the first scenes in the airplane caused me to completely abandon those thoughts.

Things got better when Shirley MacLaine's character is introduced because she made the story more interesting with her sharp and witty dialogue. I think the only time I laughed, or found the movie entertaining, were the scenes she was in. I was bored with the story of Sarah - and I don't think the writers knew what they wanted from her relationship with Mark, so they just wrote her character based off of that.

I hate when movies don't know where they're going and by the time they figure it out, you've lost interest and are just waiting for the end to finally come. That's definitely how I felt about this one.

I don't recommend this to anyone. It's sad really, because I think this movie could have been really great, if it had chosen a path and then stuck with it. I guess, technically, when this movie got to its point, you should accept that that is it, but this movie's "point" just wasn't good enough for me to give it a thumbs up.
