Aniston gets marooned here: Her comic instincts are muted by all the identity angst, yet there isn't sufficient dramatic material into which she can sink her teeth. Costner strolls through this role with disarming ease. The movie has that fatal triptych that is becoming Reiner's romantic-comedy signature: drippy sentiment, zany scenes that trivialize the characters and a horror of adventure.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli. An unfocused mess, with poor chemistry all around and an ending that's as firm and satisfying as an overcooked noodle. Empire - Olly Richards. I suppose Rumor Has It could be worse, though at the moment I'm at a loss to say just how.

Me and my girl friend went and saw it without guys and we had a blast! I would definitely see it again. Jan 16, Enjoyed every minute of it.
NigelW Jan 10, A reasonably good film, it held my attention and didn't fundamentally offend me. There were some laugh out loud moments, mainly thanks to Shirley MacLaine.

Jennifer Aniston played herself admirably. Just let down by the predictable ending. Jan 1, Boring and pointless movie. I only gave it a total of 2; 1 for Shirley McLaine's hilarious performance and 1 for Jennifer Aniston just being so darn nice to look at! So obviously the end is going to be forseeable. I loved seeing how the relationships developed, and what came between them.
I think the characters were well thought out and not way too cliche.. Overall, I would definitely recommend this if you just want a light-hearted romance book set in a cute English village. With hot guys. And a little drama. My synopsis: Tilly and Erin have been friends since college - but after Tilly went to London and Erin went home to Roxborough to care for an ailing mother. After her boyfriend moves out of their flat and leaves her with the rent, Tilly decides it is time for a change.
When visiting Erin for the weekend she stumbles across an ad for a job - a "girl Friday" and decides to give it a shot.

Strong-arming her way in for an interview, she meets Max Dineen - interior designer, father of Lou, and decidedly gay.
He had been married to Kaye, Lou's mom, but finally had to admit that he was gay and so they divorced. He was looking for someone to help him with his business and raising his teenage daughter. Lou had lived in California with her mother for awhile, but decided that she missed this home too much. Max and Tilly hit it off famously and the deal was sealed.
Tilly meets Jack Lucas soon after moving to Roxborough and is warned by everyone that he is a "love 'em and leave 'em" type of guy and that she would just be a notch on his bedpost. She does a good job of keeping her distance until she learns that Jack had been engaged and that his fiance had died. She continues to get to know him, and despite herself, the attraction grows. She continues to push him away, telling herself that regardless of what he says, she would not be different than any other girl. Finally with a weekend with Max and Lou out of town, she decides to accept a date with Jack.
Unfortunately Jack's almost in-laws show up that night and he has to call and cancel. For Tilly, that was the last straw - she feels she was saved from certain disaster. Jill Mansell gives you a whole cast of wacky characters to round out the story. There is Erin, Tilly's friend.
Fergus, Erin's boyfriend who is married but separated from Stella - Scary Stella as some call her. She has a way of being mean to just about everybody but tries to use the reasoning that she is just telling them the truth.

Kaye, Max's ex-wife also joins the fray when she arrives from America - having been put on "trial by tabloid" and losing her job on a TV show. Oh - and we mustn't forget Betty, Max and Lou's dog! I always enjoy reading one of Ms. Mansell's books. This one was no exception. The characters are fun and full of life and the books are always very humorous. I am definitely a fan! Jan 20, Lori Green rated it liked it. There was a recent sale on Jill Mansell titles and between Carolyn and I, we got a few.
I'd read some previously and was lukewarm on what I'd read before. But a good sale and chick lit are a siren's call to me so what the hell. I just finished Rumor Has It and thought it has the best and worst of what chick lit is. Pro: it's a romance. Pro: The women have careers. Con: Men are more important than careers. Pro: Gay ex.
Con: Gay ex. Con: The hero was engaged previously and she died in a drowning accident There was a recent sale on Jill Mansell titles and between Carolyn and I, we got a few. Con: The hero was engaged previously and she died in a drowning accident. The reason it's a con is because his name is Jack and the dead fiance was Rose you know, Jack and Rose from Titanic and Jack drowned.
Made me slightly nauseous. Pro: More than one couple and they all had an HEA except the one gay guy. And the bad girl who died from cancer. Con: No HEA for the gay guy and the bad girl was funny but got killed off. Pro: I really liked the best friend and her romance.
Con: I liked the best friend and her story more than the heroine and her story. Still, I enjoyed it.
Rumor Has It
It was a quick and fun read and the emotion wasn't deep. The humor was good. I'll be reading more Mansell books but not expecting too much from them. Jan 01, Katerina added it. I read this. Back when I used to borrow books from the library. Four years ago. I don't remember a single thing about it.
Kindly ignore my review. I picked this book up as a lark in the bookstore yesterday and started reading it when I got home. Five hours later, I was reaching the end of one of the most enjoyable, light-hearted, fun, entertaining reads I have read in a while. While this book might be in that oft-derided genre of "chick-lit", it transcends it with its intelligence, irony, snark, sarcasm, and a cast of lovable characters in a small English town named Roxborough.
In a Cranford meets Jane Austen meets Helen Fielding kind of w I picked this book up as a lark in the bookstore yesterday and started reading it when I got home. In a Cranford meets Jane Austen meets Helen Fielding kind of way, the girl and the guy do get together in the end, but the journey there is so enjoyable you don't care about any of the cliches that might be within the story.
The narration of the actual book is interesting in the fact that it jumps from character to character from time to time. Most of the book is told by Tilly Cole, but every so often the next chapter comes along and you get a different point of view. While this may sound pretty jarring, the way that Mansell weaves everything together makes for a fluid story when all is said and done.
This is a very British novel. Loads of irony, snark, and sarcasm and it is delightfully funny even in the most hard, painful moments. Life and death are all treated with the same aplomb. One of the playful ironic touches comes in the naming of some of the main characters. There is character named Jack, who's love in life was named Rose. Jack and Rose. Titanic anyone? It's a playful liberty taken by the author and I fully appreciated it. This is my first foray into a Mansell novel and I'm looking forward to the next one.
I can only hope it's half as good and fun as "Rumor Has It" has been. Honestly, the worst thing I can say about the book is that it's title shares the same title of a terrible movie with Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Costner, and Shirley MaClaine. Hopefully if this book is ever made into a movie, it will be more along the lines of "Bridget Jones" rather than a second-rate romantic comedy with Jennifer Aniston! Apr 13, Jill Gilbert rated it really liked it. Recently, I have been reading escapist, fluffy romance novels instead of my usual mix of YA dystopian books, contemporary fiction, and mysteries.
This book reminded me quite a bit of The Casual Vacancy , only in an upside down, happy world. Both novels are set in claustrophobically small English villages where rumor and innuendo rule the day. But where the Rowling book spirals tragically, this book rides waves of happiness to its finish, while addressing issues of homophobia, character assassinat Recently, I have been reading escapist, fluffy romance novels instead of my usual mix of YA dystopian books, contemporary fiction, and mysteries. But where the Rowling book spirals tragically, this book rides waves of happiness to its finish, while addressing issues of homophobia, character assassination by the media, disgruntled former spouses, potential stalkers, aggressive cancer, and school bullying.
So there is quite a bit more to this charming book than just a love story. Tilly's live-in boyfriend has just left her, so she visits her college friend in a small village in the Cotswolds. On a whim, she applies to be a live-in assistant to an interior designer and his daughter.
She is not vain, needy, or ridiculous in any way, which made her a refreshing heroine. There are about 5 or 6 subplots that are all equally entertaining. If you're looking for a quick, escapist read that tackles some contemporary issues along the way, give it a try! Aug 29, Krithika Sundar rated it it was ok Shelves: chick-lit. I don't rate books so low but I just didn't feel this book. Tilly was a nice protagonist but the love story between Jack and Tilly was not realistic at all.
It's like watching Some fairy tale where the struggle to get with the love of ur life is more and after that u never know if they had any fights or not. Jack is so hot and there are rumours flying around in the town that he's slept with literally every women in the small town. Jack meets Tilly and he's attracted to her but there wa 2. Jack meets Tilly and he's attracted to her but there was no story line between the two of them that made me love them as a couple. Tilly works for Max. He's like the best character in the book. Super adorable and he's so quirky and you just love to read about him and his day.
His daughter Lou is amazing. There were some nice moments in the book. The fact that Jack asks to marry Tilly without even talking much to her on a friendlier level really baffled me. I loved many characters. Not a bad book. Apr 24, Emma rated it liked it Shelves: chick-lit. This book is a light and easy read, it is reasonably enjoyable but it seems like just another Jill Mansell book - same characters with different names in a different setting. Very predictable but fun nonetheless. Couldn't get on with two of the main characters, Tilly and Jack.
Otherwise it was an ok story. Sep 23, Neha Patkar rated it really liked it. A book that's bound to put a smile on your face! The easy narrative plus the simple story line makes it a good choice for some light reading. The complete justice done to the characters albeit simple, makes it even more interesting and keeps you absorbed throughout the read! Jun 08, Beth rated it it was ok Shelves: fiction. I really enjoyed this book. The characters we likable and funny. People you would want to be friends with.
Mansell did a great job developing the characters and setting up their individual stories and linking them; however, once she got them into the thick of things it felt as if she didn't know what to do next. Some of the ends were unsatisfactory, especially the ending to the main storyline. How I desperately wanted to rate this higher. One stubborn heroine-check One playboy-check One sassy gay friend-check One troubled teenager-check I loved this book. Funny, charming, an easy read. Perfect for summer. Fun Read This was a fun and enjoyable story. It was my 1st book by this Author but I am definitely hoping it is not the last.

A Nutella kind of good is something that is rich, delicious, and all around filled with goodness that makes you sigh when you're finished with it, but when you're done you just want more of the goodness Tilly Cole has just been dumped by her boyfriend. The loser didn't even tell her face to face-he just left a letter for her to find when she got home fr This book was a Nutella kind of good. The loser didn't even tell her face to face-he just left a letter for her to find when she got home from work one day. Needing a shoulder to cry on, she goes to visit her best friend Erin, who lives in Roxborough, a small town in the English countryside.
Once there Tilly finds that she not only enjoys seeing more of Erin, but the locals and way of life in a small town. On a whim she answers a classified ad that calls for a "girl friday" and moves from London to Roxborough. The girl friday job turns out to be a job where she does anything from walking her boss Max's dog, Betty for a walk, from helping him with his interior design business.

Now she's on her way home to attend her sister's wedding, which means spending a lot of time with the tennis-obsessed Pasadena family that she's never felt quite a part of.
It isn't until Sarah stumbles into a well-kept family secret that she starts to question her roots and sets off in search of the man who may have the answers she's looking for. PG for mature thematic material, sexual content, crude humor and a drug reference. Rob Reiner.
