What's in my head

This is the home of your average girl in her early 30s making her way in the big city...Not really. I have thoughts. Now I have somewhere to put them.

The Rumour is mediocre

For the first time in about a year, my movie reviewer friend brought me to a screening this week (just like old times) so I will attempt a movie review to fill some space. (Yah, like anyone gives a hoot about my opinion).

Rumour Has It

starring: Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Costner, Mark Ruffalo and Shirley MacLaine
opens: Christmas day
rating 2.85/5

The preview leads one to believe the movie is about a woman on a quest to discover her family was the inspiration for "The Graduate." That takes all of about 25 minutes and then we're left to watch Sarah Huttinger (Aniston) take a journey of self-discovery, which isn't all the interesting. The characters (or at least Aniston's) need more development for the motivation for the self discovery to be more believable. That her younger sister "bounces" and her family likes tennis and she doesn't is not enough of a reason for a grown woman to believe she doesn't fit into her family. Also, the best comedic bits are given away in the previews. The idea and movie had potential, but don't really live up to it. I recommend you go see something else this holiday season.

Catty sidenote: Jennifer Aniston is starting to look her age. On magazine covers her lines are airbrushed and they're not as evident on the small screen, but magnified on the BIG screen at Silvercity there is no hiding that big line in her forehead or the two deep laugh lines by her mouth (I also think her smoking is starting to affect her voice, some of her lines sounded a little phlegmy).
