Rumor Has It (2005)

This riff on The Graduate has a solid cast, but is too lightweight to fully register.

Movie Info

Sarah Huttinger is in a fog. She's finally agreed to marry her boyfriend Jeff, but isn't at all sure that marriage is what she really wants. Now she's on her way home to attend her sister's wedding, which means spending a lot of time with the tennis-obsessed Pasadena family that she's never felt quite a part of. It isn't until Sarah stumbles into a well-kept family secret that she starts to question her roots and sets off in search of the man who may have the answers she's looking for.

Nothing is remotely believable here.

I suppose it sounded like a good idea at the time.

A scantily clad premise that would at best have been a light-hearted farce goes in search of a heart-tugging denouement and doesn't find it.

It fails artistically but also philosophically, in that it rebuts the spirit of the earlier film, while offering nothing attractive in its place.

Becalmed in this ghastly, would-be comedy, Aniston can do little to mitigate its ickiness.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Top Critic IconTop Critic

A romantic comedy with all the excitement of an AARP magazine cover story and negligible chemistry between Aniston and Costner. Given talk of infertility, let it be said "Rumor" is a series of rocky places in which comedy?s seed can find no purchase.

Lacks depth.

The movie shines when allowing the characters to just exist in their world together, without the forced and tired romantic comedy plot weighing on them.

Rumor has it that Rob Reiner used to make really funny, often moving films. I have no doubt he will do so again.

A lightweight Jennifer Aniston vehicle that's been rumored to pass for a feature film.

A pleasant little screwball comedy with some clever dialogue.

Com o objetivo de conferir mais dinamismo e graça à história, Rob Reiner impregna o filme com um ar de artificialidade que boicota seus propósitos.

January 27, 2006
Cinema em Cena

It's a good thing that Jennifer Aniston is one of Hollywood's most likeable actresses because her character does some pretty unforgivable things here. Ruffalo, at least, gets to properly shout at her about it before the end, but that's not really enough.

Rarely does a movie come with a homework assignment. Take it from me, though: Rumor Has It is a lot more fun if you've seen The Graduate.

January 19, 2006

Rumor has it that this movie is really, really good, but that's only half true.

January 9, 2006 Full Review Source:

Profoundly half-baked and needlessly manipulative...feels as annoyingly fluffy as an oversized marshmallow drowning in a cup of hot chocolate.

Even as a holiday throwaway, this James L. Brooks-style blend of comedy and character is lumpy and artificial, failing to extract enough truth from its sordid situations.

If I have interpreted the message of "Rumor Has It" correctly, then its message is that it's OK to run off and fool around as long as you return to a very understanding partner.

Rumor Has It is a completely charming movie with terrific performances.

The truth is, Rob Reiner has come up with another clinker romantic comedy.

What we've got here is a trifle that is too clever by half. That's not good.

Audience Reviews for Rumor Has It

It's not amazing, but Jennifer Anniston has such a nice presence on screen and it is a good little movie. This is the second time I have seen it, and actually it's better than I remembered. Have upped it half a star as I did really enjoy this.
Good supporting cast with Shirley MacLaine and Mena Suvari also. Subject matter with Kevin Costner's character is a bit ick, but I liked how it all worked out.

An ok film. Jennifer Aniston has always been a favourite of mine.

An average run of the mill rom-com/drama has some funny bits and gets more serious to the end. Starting to like Jennifer Aniston a lot more in films. She was great in friends but has done far too many rom-coms now that they just kinda all blur into one. An ok watch if you're in the mood. Although some strange plot decisions don't add up?!

I loved this movie, its hilarious, sexy and just a really fun entertaining star studded movie!! Shirley Maclaine is excellent at playing the grandma who doesnt like being called that so she deliveers a fantastic funny performance and Aniston is fantastic and gorgeous!!
Aniston plays someone who has always thought she was adopted just becuase she ahs absolutely nothing in common with her family, so when she finds out that a book was writtenand happened to be based on the huttinger family she starts to think Kevin costners character is her family so through a series of scenes which deliver funny gags you find out what really is the truth!!
Funny and completely worth a watch!!
