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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

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.
| Original Score: 2/5

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.

Nothing is remotely believable here.

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

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

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

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.

Must be among director Rob Reiner's worst movies.

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.
