A romantic comedy about sex, family, love, marriage and other major catastrophes. It was obvious to us that one major character needed mental help, however if she had received there wouldn't have been much to the movie. We enjoyed it.

I will open by saying that anyone who pans this film obviously takes their comedy far too seriously. Lighten up, people. The plot may be a little corny, but I'd rather be subjected to some corn that sit for anywhere from 1:30 up just being subjected to excessive violence and seeing millions of dollars being waste on dumb special effects.
I have very little use for Kevin Costner but I was distracted from being annoyed by is performance due to the excellence of Jennifer Aniston and Shirley MacLaine. Since I was never really into the "Seinfeld" or "Friends" type of sitcoms, I had never seen Jennifer before and I was rather impressed by her performance.
I've been in hopelessly in love with Shirley MacLaine since "Some Come Running" (1958) She is way up at the top of my list of all-time favorite redheads and I imagine I could sit and watch her read the Yellow Pages for a coupla hours.
BTW: It was on the srength of her performance here, thatI even bothered to later watch "The Good Girl" which Jennifer co-starred in with Jake Gyllenhaal and John C. Reilly where she was even better.

Plot totally absurd but movie is entertaining in a screwball comedy kind of fashion. Don't expect high acting, just relax and enjoy the laughs....

This had a terrible plot, I like the actors but this story line was very retarded.

All the pieces are perfect, including the annoying ones

"I saw a small bit of this on TV where Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Costner shined, and ordered it on a whim to see the rest.
I cannot understand all the low ratings. There are certainly parts of the movie that are trite and annoying, but that is real life and the movie should get extra credit for reminding you of your crazy annoying relatives, not be penalized.
A clear sequel to The Graduate (40th Anniversary Collector's Edition), one which could have been called "The Graduate: Next Generation," the story line, the script, the world-class actors in low-key supporting roles, the settings, all of this makes this a very fine "background movie" (what I screen when doing tedious but necessary things like printing address labels) and I loved it.
I would definitely be interested in Graduate Part IV, where she gets divorced, comes back to Costner, and they live a life of sheer joy--Hannibal (book version vice Hannibal (Two-Disc Special Edition) DVD version)."
Lukewarm sentiments about a movie void of all charm...

"Aside from the black smudge that is Kevin Costner (who actually doesn't turn in an awful performance in this dud of a film), I expected a lot from the cast here. I mean, we're talking about screen goddess Shirley MacLaine (I worship her), underrated supporting player Mark Ruffalo and America's Sweetheart Jennifer Aniston (you know, before we knew that Rachel Greene was the only character she knew how to play). Anyways, this embellished fable that rests on the cuffs of a GREAT movie (`The Graduate') serves up an interesting concept with absolutely no real effort made to flesh out something remotely interesting. `The Graduate' was sharp and witty and poignant and, believe it or not, charming. This film NEEDED charm to sell its prose, and you would think that Aniston especially would bring huge heaps of it. Instead, she delivers a dull and uninspired variation of her television persona. MacLaine is a scene stealer (we all knew that) but there isn't much to steal here. There are few films that meander on stagnancy quite like `Rumor Has It...' but this is one of those rare films that elicits almost no emotional response from me. I can't say that I hate it, that I love it, that I like it, that I dislike it. It barely even registers with me because it simply offers nothing."
