Editorial Reviews

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.

Do you really care about another 30-something coming to grips with adulthood? Grow up. What a waste.

1.0 out of 5 stars Almost unbearable... July 10, 2006
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.

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.

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