Jennifer Aniston portrays Sarah Huttinger, whose return home with her fiance convinces her that the sedate, proper, country-club lifestyle of her family isn't for her, and that maybe the Huttinger family isn't even hers. Join Sarah as she uncovers secrets that suggest the Huttingers are neither sedate nor proper - and as Kevin Costner, Shirley MacLaine and Mark Ruffalo join the fun. The story is rumor. The laughs are real!

"Two thumbs up.  Ebert & Roeper
"Rob Reiner hits every scene just right.  Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Jennifer Aniston graduates to the top ranks of movie stars with a completely engaging and endearing performance. Shirley MacLaine is a riot and Kevin Costner is absolutely perfect. Rumor Has It... is director Rob Reiner's best since When Harry Met Sally, a sophisticated, extremely clever and totally winning comedy you don't want to miss!  Pete Hammond, Maxim
"The fanciful comedy delivers another tart turn from MacLaine.  Thelma Adams, US Weekly
"It's wistful, funny and poignant.  Jeffrey Lyons, NBC's "Reel Talk"
"Easygoing but surprisingly likable comedy.  Allison Benedikt, Chicago Tribune
"T. M. Griffin's script is imaginative and clever.  William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Editor's Note
With the romantic comedy RUMOR HAS IT, director Rob Reiner (WHEN HARRY MET SALLY) attempts the tricky task of creating a film based on an already celebrated classic, 1967's THE GRADUATE. Starring Dustin Hoffman and based on a novel by Charlie Webb, the original film revolved around the love triangle between a recent college-graduate, his girlfriend, and her famously seductive mother. Here, Reiner casts a chain-smoking Shirley MacLaine as the supposed real-life inspiration for Mrs. Robinson, and Jennifer Aniston as her granddaughter. Set for the most part within the gossipy community of Pasadena, California, the film follows Sarah Huttinger (Aniston) and her fiancé (Mark Ruffalo) as they travel home for her perky sister's (Mena Suvari) wedding. Having nothing in common with her family, Sarah is intrigued upon learning that she may actually be the secret love child of her deceased mother and Beau Borroughs (Kevin Costner), the man whose affairs with both Sarah's mother and grandmother supposedly inspired Charlie Webb, a classmate and friend of Beau, to write THE GRADUATE. From here, Sarah seeks out Beau, interested in him as a father-like figure and possibly more.

Aniston brings a Rachel-like (FRIENDS) comic vibe to her character, frequently expressing her neuroses by talking to herself out loud in a sitcom-ish style. Costner is plenty capable in his role, but even with Beau's riches and charm, viewers may find it hard to understand why a young woman would embark on a romance with the same man who bedded her mother and grandmother. Reiner's script veers away from the classic romantic comedy formula by keeping Ruffalo's character at the sidelines. Rather, RUMOR HAS IT focuses on one woman's journey towards adulthood, self-realization, and acceptance of her origins via a path that while strange and potentially incestuous, seems to be family tradition.

Professional Reviews

Premiere
"[W]e continue to be interested in this new-model Kevin Costner, who wears middle-aged wolfishness much more comfortably than earnest youth." 07/01/2006 p.102

Ultimate DVD
3 stars out of 5 -- "Surprisingly risque for a Hollywood comedy, the film takes THE GRADUATE one step further..." 07/01/2006 p.115

Variety.com 7 of 10
Costner brings a breezy charm to his crucial if relatively modest role (he doesn't show up for 35 minutes or so), though there's something vaguely creepy about how quickly things move from "Are you my dad?" to "Where are my clothes?" Moreover, the movie's take-away message feels unconvincing, perhaps because so little foundation is laid in creating worthwhile relationships..."Rumor Has It..." fares somewhat better on a technical level, as the manicured lawns and lavish parties evoke mild memories of "The Graduate," along with its notion of secrets and betrayals lurking beneath the meticulous landscaping of suburbia. - Brian Lowry

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
This is not a great movie, but it's very watchable and has some good laughs. The casting of Aniston is crucial, because she's the heroine of this story, and the way it's put together there's danger of her becoming the shuttlecock. Aniston has the presence to pull it off. She has to maybe scuttle her sister's wedding and her own, maybe abandon the guy who loves her, maybe break her official father's heart, maybe (yeechh!) sleep with her (maybe) real dad, yet always retain our sympathy. Well, of course she does. She's one of my closest friends. - Roger Ebert
