Becky and I went to see “Rumor Has It” last night. The Fandango website at Rumor Has It describes the movie as follows:
“Sarah Huttinger’s (Jennifer Aniston) life is in a tailspin. She’s finally agreed to marry her boyfriend Jeff (Mark Ruffalo), but isn’t at all sure that marriage is what she really wants … in fact, she’s not sure what she wants in general. As conflicted as she is about her love life, her professional life isn’t much better – an aspiring journalist, Sarah’s career has stalled at the New York Times obituary column. To top it all off, she’s on her way home to attend her sister’s wedding, which means spending a lot of time with her tennis-obsessed Pasadena family. Somewhat of a black sheep, Sarah’s never quite felt a part of things when it comes to her relatives. But when she meets Internet millionaire Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner), their encounter unexpectedly unlocks some well-kept secrets that may help Sarah uncover the truth about her family and finally discover who she truly is.”
The Fandango description above is so long that I don’t have to tell you much about the movie. We both thought that Shirley MacLaine’s character was the best one in the film as “grandma”, but the whole film focused on Jennifer Aniston and her decision on whether or not to get married. You kind of had the attitude of “who cares”, get married and get on with your life.
We both thought that the Director spent the majority of his film time focusing on how beautiful Jennifer Aniston was. Constant headshots on her face, her hair and then showing us her body continually without a great deal of real substance to the film or her acting. Her character couldn’t decide if she wanted to get married and thinks she is engaged to the wrong man. It’s funny at times, but pretty silly for the most part. There are skeletons in her family’s closet that were put there by her dead mother who had a fling with Kevin Costner’s character a week before she was married. Not only did her mother have a fling with him, but so did her grandma.
It was another cute romantic comedy that should have been less than half the price of admission. Our suggestion would be to wait for the rental rack where “rumor has it”, it will be showing up very soon.
