I heard that all the planets rotate in the same direction(Clockwise) except Venus which rotates in the opposite direction(Counterclockwise). Is this true?

Uranus also rotates in the opposite direction (albeit on a strange tilt, also). See http://curious.astro.cornell.edu/question.php?number=20 [Broken] for more info.
