PG-13

Rumor Has It is a 2005 romantic comedy film by director Rob Reiner, starring Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Costner in its well-known cast. In the movie, Jennifer Aniston is Sarah Huttinger, a recently engaged but unsure of herself woman, who takes her fiancé, attractive New York lawyer Jeff Daly (Mark Ruffalo) home to Pasadena to meet her family. When she learns of a rumor that the events of “The Graduate” are based on true events involving her own family, and that she may be the result of those events, she starts to question everything about her life, including her happy romance. She decides that the only way to solve this will be to visit author Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner), the man she suspects may be her father, and packs up to visit him. Jeff is, at first, supportive of the trip, but when Sarah meets Beau, things do not go quite as planned. Rumor Has It is about self discovery, love, and what matters in life.

    Variety Brian Lowry

    As muddled in most respects as its title, Rumor Has It... begins with an intriguing premise...but it devolves into a bland romance spiced with too little comedy.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Crust

    The resulting film is a muddled, melodramatic, sort-of remake of "The Graduate."

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    I suppose Rumor Has It could be worse, though at the moment I'm at a loss to say just how.
