Picks and Pans Review: Rumor Has It …

UPDATED 01/09/2006 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 01/09/2006 at 01:00 AM EST

Jennifer Aniston, Shirley MacLaine, Kevin Costner, Mark Ruffalo

Aniston has a sensational figure, showcased here to tremendous advantage in everything from a tight white T-shirt and rear-hugging jeans to a clingy evening gown. But when one spends more time pondering a character's clothes than her plight, the movie is in trouble. Rumor Has It… is a contrived comedy that can't surmount its contrivances. A journalist (Aniston, emoting mightily) flies home to Pasadena with her attentive fiancé (Ruffalo) for a sibling's wedding. While home, she learns that both her boozehound grandma (MacLaine) and dead mom had flings with the man (Costner) who inspired the Benjamin character in The Graduate, and she seeks him out. Will she too fall prey to his raffish charms? Ick and double ick. (PG-13)
