Rumor Has It... is a romantic comedy-drama movie, released in 2005, starring Jennifer Aniston, Mark Ruffalo, and Shirley MacLaine. Directed by Rob Reiner, the movie revolves around a woman named Sarah Huttinger (Jennifer Aniston), who after attending her younger sister's wedding, learns a shocking family secret that leads her on a journey of self-discovery.

The movie starts with Sarah, a 30-something writer for The New York Times, struggling with her personal and professional life. One day, she receives an invitation to her younger sister Annie's (Mena Suvari) wedding in Pasadena, California. At the wedding, she meets her grandmother, Katherine (Shirley MacLaine), and other members of her family. She also meets Jeff Daly (Mark Ruffalo), a charming and successful man, who is immediately attracted to her.

After the wedding, Sarah goes to her grandmother's house, where she learns a shocking family secret from her grandmother's best friend, the eccentric and mysterious Katharine Richelieu (also played by Shirley MacLaine). Katharine reveals to Sarah that the novel and movie "The Graduate" was actually based on the love affair between Katharine herself and Sarah's grandfather, who had an affair with her just a few weeks before his own wedding. This revelation leads Sarah on a journey to find the truth about her family.

As Sarah tries to uncover the truth about her family, she begins to develop feelings for Jeff, who is also helping her in her quest. She realizes that she is falling in love with him, but is afraid of getting hurt. Meanwhile, Jeff is also going through his own personal struggles, as he tries to connect with his son, who lives with his ex-wife.

The movie also explores the theme of family relationships. Sarah has a strained relationship with her father, who is emotionally distant from their family. She also has a difficult relationship with her mother, who is overbearing and always trying to control her. Through her journey, Sarah learns to forgive her father and reconnect with him, as well as to stand up to her mother and assert her independence.

As the movie progresses, Sarah's relationship with Jeff deepens, and the two of them must confront the truth about their feelings for each other. The climax of the movie takes place at a family gathering, where Sarah and Jeff must decide their future together.

Overall, Rumor Has It... is a heartwarming and entertaining movie that explores themes of love, family, and self-discovery. The strong performances from the cast, especially Jennifer Aniston and Mark Ruffalo, make it a must-watch for fans of romantic comedies.
