Rumor Has It… ★ 2005 (PG-13)

Rumor has it… this movie blows. And, unfortunately, that ain't gossip. Rob Reiner continues to explore the latter, significantly crappier stage of his directorial career in this monumental waste of time and talent. It's a nifty concept—at her sister's wedding, the engaged Sarah (Aniston) discovers that her family was the basis for “The Graduate” and finds herself falling for the man (Costner) who seduced both her mother and grandmother (MacLaine)—but everyone involved in the production looks uncomfortable and there are no laughs to be found. Nice job, Meathead. 96m/C DVD, Bluray Disc, HD DVD . US Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Costner, Shirley MacLaine, Mark Ruffalo, Richard Jenkins, Christopher McDonald, Mena Suvari, Steve Sandvoss; D: Rob Reiner; W: T.M. Griffin; C: Peter Deming; M: Marc Shaiman.
