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.
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.
