Old pro Shirley MacLaine steals her every scene in Rumor Has It..., a very curiously conceived comedy directed by Rob Reiner (When Harry Met Sally..., The Princess Bride). Sarah (Jennifer Aniston, The Good Girl) arrives at her sister's wedding with her fiance Jeff (Mark Ruffalo, 13 Going on 30). She's already feeling anxiety-ridden about her impending marriage when she gleans from some odd hints from her grandmother Katherine (MacLaine, The Apartment, Terms of Endearment) that her family was the basis for the movie The Graduate. Quicker that you can say "Mrs. Robinson" she slips away from Jeff to investigate, suspecting that the guy Dustin Hoffman's character was based on--Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner, Tin Cup)--might be her actual father...well, from there the plot takes a few twists, but this is not a movie that succeeds based on its story (which never really becomes persuasive). Instead, Rumor Has It... rests on the surprisingly complex and mature emotional interactions between the characters (particularly given that it's a movie about someone refusing to make choices in her life). Aniston won't win any awards for this, but she certainly gives her role more depth than a typical romantic comedy heroine; Costner and Ruffalo are both in fine form; and MacLaine appears just often enough to inject some delightfully prickly personality into a movie that often teeters on the edge of too much niceness. Also featuring Richard Jenkins (Six Feet Under) and Mena Suvari (American Beauty). --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Jennifer Aniston portrays Sarah Huttinger, whose return home with her fiance convinces her that the sedate, proper, country-club lifestyle of her family isn't for her, and that maybe the Huttinger family isn't even hers. Join Sarah as she uncovers secrets that suggest the Huttingers are neither sedate nor proper - and as Kevin Costner, Shirley MacLaine and Mark Ruffalo join the fun. The story is rumor. The laughs are real!

3.0 out of 5 stars Rumor Has It March 30, 2008
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.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rumor has had it... May 30, 2006
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak and horribly "unfunny" May 22, 2006
Format:DVD
This film is about a woman from Pasadena named Susan (played by our favorite friend, Jennifer Aniston). As an adult, she's moved to New York and gotten engaged to a guy named Jeff (played by the ubiquitous Mark Ruffalo). She and Jeff fly back to Pasadena to attend her little sister's wedding. Very soon she finds herself getting entwined with the mysterious relationship that took place in the 1960s between her deceased mother and a man named Beau Burroughs (played by Kevin Costner). She is further shocked when she discovers that Burroughs might be her real father, and that his exploits with her mother and grandmother might have been the inspiration behind the story of The Graduate.

This movie disturbed me to my very soul. I really don't want to give away what happens, but there is a somewhat incestuous undertone that is being passed off as a funny, unfortunate circumstance. I am very sorry, but there is NOTHING funny or entertaining about incest, especially when it is placed in a movie that is supposed to be lighthearted and clever.

Another thing that irritated me is the ending. Once again, I don't want to give too much away, but there are absolutely no consequences for the horrible deceit someone commits against someone else. I don't see how this movie could have ended as happily as it did when disgusting and deceitful things took place.

The only thing that saved this movie from just one star is the fact that it took place in Pasadena, my favorite city in L.A.

Aside from the black smudge that is Kevin Costner (who actually doesn't turn in an awful performance in this dud of a film), I expected a lot from the cast here. I mean, we're talking about screen goddess Shirley MacLaine (I worship her), underrated supporting player Mark Ruffalo and America's Sweetheart Jennifer Aniston (you know, before we knew that Rachel Greene was the only character she knew how to play). Anyways, this embellished fable that rests on the cuffs of a GREAT movie (`The Graduate') serves up an interesting concept with absolutely no real effort made to flesh out something remotely interesting. `The Graduate' was sharp and witty and poignant and, believe it or not, charming. This film NEEDED charm to sell its prose, and you would think that Aniston especially would bring huge heaps of it. Instead, she delivers a dull and uninspired variation of her television persona. MacLaine is a scene stealer (we all knew that) but there isn't much to steal here. There are few films that meander on stagnancy quite like `Rumor Has It...' but this is one of those rare films that elicits almost no emotional response from me. I can't say that I hate it, that I love it, that I like it, that I dislike it. It barely even registers with me because it simply offers nothing.

So far, this is the only combo. I'm sure sales of this will help determine how often future HD releases will be combos.
