Synopsis

Box set containing three romantic comedies. In 'Rumour Has It' (2005), Jennifer Aniston plays Sarah Huttinger, a young woman who travels back to visit her family in California and is shocked to learn that they were supposedly the model for the classic book and film 'The Graduate', and that her youthful grandmother Katharine (Shirley MacLaine) could be the real-life Mrs Robinson. In which case, Sarah begins to suspect that wealthy family friend Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner) could have been the young man who had tumultuous affairs with both her mother and grandmother. In 'Must Love Dogs' (2005), thirty-something preschool teacher Sarah Nolan (Diane Lane) has been divorced for eight months, which is much too long for her family to bear. With the best of intentions, they stage an intervention in an all-out effort to get her out of pyjamas and back into the dating scene. Leading the charge are Sarah's sisters, Carol (Elizabeth Perkins) and Christine (Ali Hillis), and their widowed father Bill (Christopher Plummer), who has been seeing free-spirited Dolly (Stockard Channing) after meeting her online. Eager to launch their sister's own cyber-dating debut, Carol and Christine pretend to be Sarah and post her profile on a website, and wait for the responses to pour in. Sarah soon endures a series of hilariously disastrous mismatches and first dates as the website offers up a stream of eager wannabes and one possible maybe - awkward but intriguing boat builder Jake Anderson (John Cusack). Finally, in 'What Women Want' (2000), hot-shot advertising executive Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson) thinks he's God's gift to women and can get anyone he wants. After an accident he discovers that he can hear what women are really thinking about and is upset that his showing off techniques are not popular with his female colleagues. To make matters worse his dream of being promoted to a higher position has been thwarted by new team member Darcy (Helen Hunt). He does not like this and uses his new found powers to ruin her by reading her mind and selling her ideas as his own. But soon his plan backfires as she starts to fall in love with him and there seems to be no way out.
