  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
"Rumor Has It..." that the book "The Graduate" was written by a classmate of the guy who was actually part of the real story. Thirty years later when Sarah Huttinger (Aniston) goes home for her sister Annie's (Suvari) wedding, she decides that she may be the product of the fictional tale. Convinced that her grandmother (MacLaine) and aging hottie Beau Burroughs (Costner) are Mrs. Robinson and Benjamin, Sarah decides that one way or another she's going to find out the truth. Based on a true rumor. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
With a richly saturated color palette and bright imagery, the Anistonmorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture is perfectly suitable for the storytelling. The picture is sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered textures and definition. Images are clean and smooth, with little in the way of bothersome pixelization or edge enhancement. (Suzanne Hodges)
