So, just who were the Robinsons?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rumour Has It [DVD]  (DVD)
Watching this movie brought back great memories of the 1960s film "The Graduate", (which I saw at the cinema when it first came out), and using the story of Benjamin Braddock and Mrs Robinson was a really good idea for 'the rumour' and for the comic situations it created in this movie, which incidentally has a great cast. Jennifer Aniston is an excellent choice for the part of the granddaughter, who picks up on the idea that it may just be possible that her feisty grandmother could be the original real-life Mrs Robinson, portrayed in "The Graduate". AND did this make her the daughter of Ben (Benjamin Braddock)?, whom she discovers is really called Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner).
All will be revealed in a cleverly scripted story woven around the Huttenger family. Kevin Costner plays a really attractive, (slightly) older, very intelligent man, who appears to be irresistible to all the female Huttengers. Mark Ruffalo, and Shirley MacLaine also star with a short appearance by Cathy Bates. By the way, it really helps if you've seen "The Graduate" before watching this, (I imagine most of us have) to understand the basis of the rumour. A really entertaining movie.
