By FrKurt Messick HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on March 8 2006
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.

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.
