Rumor Has It - 4

This is a chic-flick that uses the story of The Graduate as a rumor that circulates 30 years later. Sarah (Jennifer Aniston) finds out that her grandmother could be Mrs. Robinson, and that she might be the love child of the famous Benjamin Braddock, or Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner) in real life. While relatively funny and somewhat intriguing it's historical context, the film falls flat as the writers try to string the audience along and the gag doesn't really work for a full two hours. The only highlight is a decent performance by Mark Ruffalo. This is a film for those times when you want a "no work required" film.
