A woman discovers that a part of her family history may be more complicated -- and more famous -- than she ever imagined in this comedy. Thirtysomething Sarah Huttinger (Jennifer Aniston), who has spent most of her adult life in New York City, is flying home to California with her long time boyfriend, Jeff Daly (Mark Ruffalo), for the wedding of her annoyingly perky younger sister, Annie (Mena Suvari).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nothing is remotely believable here."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"A funny idea, alas, doesn't necessarily make for a funny movie."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"A romantic comedy with all the excitement of an AARP magazine cover story and negligible chemistry between Aniston and Costner. Given talk of infertility, let it be said "Rumor" is a series of rocky places in which comedy?s seed can find no purchase."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Rumor has it that Rob Reiner used to make really funny, often moving films. I have no doubt he will do so again."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A pleasant little screwball comedy with some clever dialogue."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"I suppose it sounded like a good idea at the time."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"It fails artistically but also philosophically, in that it rebuts the spirit of the earlier film, while offering nothing attractive in its place."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Lacks depth."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"A lightweight Jennifer Aniston vehicle that's been rumored to pass for a feature film."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"Com o objetivo de conferir mais dinamismo e graça à história, Rob Reiner impregna o filme com um ar de artificialidade que boicota seus propósitos."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A scantily clad premise that would at best have been a light-hearted farce goes in search of a heart-tugging denouement and doesn't find it."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Becalmed in this ghastly, would-be comedy, Aniston can do little to mitigate its ickiness."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The movie shines when allowing the characters to just exist in their world together, without the forced and tired romantic comedy plot weighing on them."
‑ Todd Hertz, Christianity Today
"As glazed and cooked as a Christmas ham."
‑ Matt Pais,
"It's a good thing that Jennifer Aniston is one of Hollywood's most likeable actresses because her character does some pretty unforgivable things here. Ruffalo, at least, gets to properly shout at her about it before the end, but that's not really enough."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
