Storyline

Hunky NY lawyer Jeff Daly finally got engaged to fickle Sarah Huttinger, who presents him to her Pasadena family, who all soon take to him, for her sister's wedding to Scott. But Jeff's clever counting makes Sarah realize her dad Earl isn't her biological father. Once movie clues from family indicate as suspect successful author Beau Burroughs, she insists on meeting him. Only like her mother and grandmother, she has a one night-stand with Beau, which may well cost her Jeff. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The Screenwriter Ted Griffin was the original Director, but was fired after just twelve days of shooting, which resulted in Rob Reiner taking over. Production had to be shut down for a few days as Reiner was allowed to make script, cast, and crew changes before filming eventually resumed. As a result of this, original cast members Charlie Hunnam, Lesley Ann Warren, Tony Bill, and Greta Scacchi were all let go from the project. See more »

Rumor Lacks It
6 July 2008 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

'Rumor Has It' pretty much has all the technical ingredients: Good actors, interesting premise (a girl trying to find herself), excellent cinematography, breathtaking shots of America and a nice score. However, it's let down by the writing and direction. For a comedy, it's not so funny. Many of the jokes fall flat. For a drama, it just doesn't engage and a lot of it looks forced. The movie derails every now and then and the whole 'romantic' angle between Costner's Beau and Aniston's Sarah feels icky and looks unconvincing. Jennifer Aniston is in a confused Rachel Green mode (except here her character is not likable and she's a little too whiny). Mark Ruffalo does a decent job as the supportive boyfriend and shares a good chemistry with Aniston. Their scenes in the beginning are quite fun to watch. It's just the last scene that was a little less believable as Jeff seems to have forgiven Sarah too easily. Kevin Costner seems sleazy (when the character wasn't really meant to appear that way) and he and Aniston seem to lack chemistry. Mena Suvari has a pointless and thankless role. The last scene between her and Aniston just seemed ...well, forced. However, it is Shirley MacLaine who delivers the best performance. She provides all the laugh out loud moments but her role is too small to be the saving grace. Simply put, 'Rumor Has It' is a weak and confused film.
