      Critics Consensus

      This riff on The Graduate has a solid cast, but is too lightweight to fully register.

      Catherine Shoard Daily Telegraph (UK) Rumour had it that this was rubbish, and so it is.

      Monika Creepy, of course directed by old man Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/01/24 Full Review Qin L Am I supposed to like a movie about a degen cheater family who then has another degen kid who cheats? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/17/23 Full Review Lori F Yep, Five Stars! Intelligently written, directed, and acted. I was quite shocked to see this film panned, particularly when hackneyed rom-coms get accolades. "Rumor Has It" takes the bold step of recognizing that women too, have rogue sexual impulses. Thus, three generations of women in the same family have put the moves on Beau (Kevin Costner), betraying either their kin or their betrothed. For me, everything about the movie signaled lightness, humor, and fun (especially Shirley MacLaine as Grandma!) such that I would not have imagined anyone could take it to be literally sanctioning any given behavior. (Frankly, even if it were, it would not be distorting real life very much--just look at the divorce rate.) Yet based on some reviews, one would think the film invites you to laugh at torturing animals. Per the current zeitgeist, some see Sarah (Jennifer Aniston) as a Me-Too victim, never mind that it is she, not Beau, who plants the first hot kisses, and then fully owns what ensues. Others manage to discern innuendos of incest even though Beau's possible paternity is roundly discounted and directly mocked. And others couldn't get past Jeff (Mark Ruffalo) taking back his fiancee after her fog-headed romp with Beau. Agreed, doing so might not sit well in a simplistic drama. But here, it's a thematically satisfying resolution to all that came before. Plus, how about the idea that he loves her? To me, the film's detractors are off, particularly if their critiques are "moral." What *I* saw was a wry and charming comedy, the product of an A-list cast and director. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/05/23 Full Review Rick A Cute plot device. Otherwise, terrible film, terrible acting. Lucky that Shirley McLaine was there, but not enough to make up for the rest. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/11/23 Full Review Martin B This story is so ridiculous that I would say if you actually enjoyed this or just simply think that it is "cute" or whatever...not bad , I really think that you should seek professional help.I can't believe that I had to sit and watch this garbage. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/11/23 Full Review Aaron M Creepy Rom-Com with an all star cast with zero tension, stars are wooden (Jennifer is actually a good comedic actor and she soldiers through but we don't have to). Skip it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
