Rumor Has It back to product details

I used to live in Pasadena & It's not THAT bad...

This film gives the city of Pasadena CA (my former home) an almost supporting role. I swear they mention it at least 100 times. Let me just say that Pasadena does not warrant that much conversation.

As far as the film goes - um - blah. It's just alright. The performances are good, but the script is silly and Jennifer Anistons character is a little un likeable. Mark Ruffalo shines as usual. Rent Just Like Heaven instead, it's more fun.

Not a comedy, RUMOR HAS IT fails most egregiously when it tries to be one (the dreadful "telephone" scene). More a love story--with some funny moments--about treading that difficult path to commitment, as well as a family story that asks why we aren't more like our progenitors, the movie benefits from its fine cast (all of whom give good performances) and the generally wise direction of Rob Reiner (he replaced the original director, Ted Griffin, who wrote the screenplay).

The premise is terrific: What if you discovered that your family was the basis for the story of "The Graduate"? But the follow-thru, for all its glossy, good looks and professional polish, doesn't, finally, understand what kind of movie it is, where it needs to go, and how it should get there. Mark Ruffalo, however (and as usual) just about saves the day, and Shirley MacLaine has a priceless line about Pasadena, California. Move my rating up a notch if you're a big fan of the cast.
