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.

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.

The result is a wayward movie, sort of like a trip to Florida from New York via Cairo, Ill. -- there's not much to do in Cairo, but there are several worthy stops (Indianapolis, Memphis) along the way.

More dramatic and less comedic than advertised, this isn't something that'll leave a lasting impression, but then, Mike Nichols didn't think The Graduate would either.

Watching and laughing at the film, you'd never know it was such a troubled production. Here's to you, Mr. Reiner.

An original and outrageously funny social satire that blurs illusion with reality, it's helium-light fun for the holiday season.
