From Amazon.co.uk

Rumour Has It brings together several people whose film career could usefully use a jolt. Kevin Costner, the excellent and pretty much unseen The Upside Of Anger aside, is long in need of a hit. Director Rob Reiner is some distance away from the heights of his big successes such as When Harry Met Sally and A Few Good Men. And the calibre of Jennifer Aniston’s movie CV has her still mainly regarded as Rachel from Friends.

Sadly, Rumour Has It does none of them any favours. It follows Aniston’s quest to dig into her family history, believing as she does that her mother and grandmother inspired the book of The Graduate. It’s a fun premise, yet the film does little with it. The script is lightweight, the humour is thin on the ground, and only good performances from Costner and the scene-stealing Shirley Maclaine lift it in any way.

As for Rob Reiner, he’s very much a director for hire here. He’s considerably far off his best work, and while Rumour Has It isn’t, ultimately, a poor film, it is an entirely unessential and sparse one. A waste of all the talents concerned, each of whom is easily capable of bettering this.--Simon Brew

Another sit-com type, light-hearted, and feel good movie that got ravaged by the critics when it was released in the theatres. Rumor Has It isn't all bad, in fact, largely due to the performances of the A-list cast members, it's a pleasant little screwball comedy occasionally peppered with some clever dialogue. Although the movie's denouement doesn't really live up to the promise of it's opening, there's lots of fun to be had and there's something intrinsically likeable about all the characters.

Sarah Huttinger (Jennifer Aniston) and her boyfriend Jeff (Mark Ruffalo) are on their way to her ditzy younger sister's wedding in Pasadena. Sarah and Jeff also plan to get married, but of late, a feeling of insecurity has been plaguing Sarah. Her initial diffidence is reinforced when she learns that members of her family were the inspiration for the book and 1967 film, The Graduate - and she just might be the offspring of the liaison.

Jeff is initially weary of Sarah's investigations, but when he discovers there's a huge question revolving around the date of her birth, Sarah is compelled to seek out the truth. Was her Granny Catherine (Shirley MacLaine) in fact Mrs. Robinson? And was that Benjamin Braddock, so famously played by Dustin Hoffman, in fact an entrepreneurial Internet shark called Beau Burroughs, played by Kevin Costner?

It's all terribly far fetched and the material is undoubtedly light-weight, contrived and rather predictable, but director Rob Reiner imbues his characters with such a fine sense of loving earnestness that it is impossible not to get caught up in all the shenanigans of the Huttinger family. Shirley MacLaine gets the best lines as sharp-witted, cynical and world-weary Catherine who tosses alcohol fuelled acerbic barbs at the drop of a hat.

4.0 out of 5 stars And here's to you, Mrs. Richelieu 13 Jun 2006
By Amanda Richards VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is a slightly above-average romantic comedy, but would have been much less so if it weren't for the luminescence of the star power assembled by Rob Reiner.

Jennifer Aniston plays Sarah Huttinger, a cutesy-pie, ditsy and often confused young woman, who is engaged to a perfect man (Mark Ruffalo) but who is unsure of her feelings towards marriage. Now living in New York, she and her fiancé travel to her hometown of Pasadena to attend her sister's wedding, and while there, events lead Sarah to the shocking revelation that her family may have inspired the story of "The Graduate", and that the timing of her birth raises a few questions about her biological father.

Her mother having passed away when she was nine, Sarah confronts her grandmother (a show-stealing brilliantly cast Shirley MacLaine), and then sets off on a man-hunt for Beau Burroughs (an unbelievably charming and entertaining Kevin Costner), the man who inspired the Benjamin Braddock character.

Doing her detective work efficiently, she tracks him to San Francisco, where he puts some of her fears to rest on the one hand, but stirs up a hornet's nest with the other. Her relationship with her fiancé deteriorates rapidly, but when she is called upon to calm her sister's anxieties about marriage, she realizes that she should listen to herself sometimes on matters of the heart.

A shaky script that is admirably supported by the cast, but all the kudos belong to Shirley MacLaine who made this movie watchable.

Hey hey hey.- 3.5 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected 31 July 2008
Format:Blu-ray
I had very low expectations as the reviews were very negative when it was released. I also think I heard that it had a troubled production as the original director was fired after the first day of filming, and I think Jennifer Aniston disowned the film. I only bought it because I found a Blu-Ray copy on sale for £1. I took a chance on it and I was surprised that it was a perfectly competent if unremarkable light weight drama with a little hint of comedy. The Graduate connection is a bit of a red herring as it's really just used as a set up to an unconnected story.

It's not a great film, and it has a few longueurs during its second half as it starts to run out of story (the film would probably be better at 60 minutes in length). It's a bit pointless in the end and you do wonder why it was even made, but it's a pleasant enough viewing experience. The incest sub-plot is a bit odd, and as it's an expensive glossy Hollywood movie, they don't get much mileage out of it as they keep everything as tasteful as possible.

The Blu-Ray disc looks good though I doubt it's a significant improvement upon the DVD version. If anything high definition might work against it as it makes the film look more like it was shot on video tape instead of warm vibrant film.
I find that all movement (actors walking, cars driving or the camera moving) has a strange floating, bobbing feel to it. I assume this is because everything stays in focus much better than it does on VHS and DVD, and it is just something you will quickly get used to. Also background scenery is clearer than DVD, but this is hardly something to get excited about.

I think I can maybe spot the joins between 1st unit (the actors) and the 2nd unit (long shots of buildings, shots of cars on roads, action scenes etc).
