Adele has just splurged on a new £7 million home in Sussex, England – but Adele thinks the house is haunted. Adele apparently is afraid to walk around the property by her house.
Luckily, Adele won’t be alone. There are reports that the singer has hired a female driver as a live-in bodyguard – for £100,000 a year.
And because Adele is in a spending mood, she also hired another two security guards to patrol the property.
The premise of “Rumor Has It . . .” is a great idea. The movie is not so great.
“Rumor Has It . . .,” starring Jennifer Aniston, Mark Ruffalo, Shirley MacLaine and Kevin Costner, is now on DVD.
You probably know the movie I’m talking about. After all, previews for it were played in theatres months before the movie finally came out. It’s a story of a young woman named Sarah (Aniston) who learns that her mother slept with a man weeks before marrying her father. Sarah has always been the black sheep of her family and starts to think maybe her father is really the man her mother slept with all those years ago ? Beau Borroughs (Costner), who also slept with her grandmother (MacLaine). Which makes Sarah realize that means her family was the basis for the book, and film of the same name, “The Graduate.” Sarah seeks out Beau to find out if he is her father and she ends up sleeping with him too.
The plot is great, but unfortunately Aniston plays a character too close to Rachel from “Friends.” On top of that, her acting isn’t too great in this film. The only person worth watching is MacLaine who cannot stand Costner’s character of Beau. Her insults and comedic timing are the only laughs you will have during the movie. Unfortunately, MacLaine is not in the movie near enough to make it worthwhile.
The only thing that would have made this DVD a little bit bearable would have been the extras. After all, isn’t that why we love DVDs? I know it’s why I love them. So as soon as I got my DVD copy, I flipped it over to see what extras I could watch to make it a little bit easier to watch this film again. Only there were none.
I’m not kidding ? none. No special features? What’s the point of putting a film on DVD then? The only “special features” would be to watch the film in French or Spanish – which I actually considered as it just might have made the film a little bit more interesting, but alas I decided to suffer through it in English again instead.
So if you’re thinking about “Rumor Has It . . .” just forget about it until it comes out on television.
