Gossip is one of a spate of movies that owe a lot to Cruel Intentions. This time it's rich kids in college, but other than that Gossip stays well within the beautiful-young-people-doing-awful-things-to-each other formula. Lena Heady plays Jones, obviously the Smart Girl because she is briefly seen wearing glasses. Jones hangs out with Arty Guy Travis and Handsome Rich Guy Derrick, who finances their adventures and has a little bit of a lying habit. The three are all in the same journalism class (acidic monologist Eric Bogosian plays the acidic professor) and decide to start and track a rumor for their term papers. They pick rich and beautiful couple Beau and Naomi (Joshua Jackson and Kate Hudson) as the focus of the rumor, and before you know it their juicy story starts spinning out of control into ugly territory and a truly ludicrous climax. There are attempts at making sledgehammer points about the slippery task of finding Truth, but mostly Gossip is about the guilty pleasure of watching pretty young actors be mean to each other. You'll hate yourself in the morning, but watch it anyway. --Ali Davis

Customer Reviews

The cast was very well chosen and the soundtrack is good.
Rodrigo Medina
The ending is made that much worse because of how good the movie is until then. if you are going to see this movie just know to have a vomit bag with you at the end.
"dov145"
The actors in the film did very well in portraying their characters flaws and all.

I'm surprised that reviews of this tidy little work are so mixed. It's a reliable enough recipe: take 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' and mix with 'House of Games,' but lighten it up with a dash of glitz, a fetching fantasy of idealized college life, and no major downer at the end :-)
The young actors are pretty and some are talented, and the dialogue is not bad -- some of it is actually rather good. The sets are a bit much, imho -- one wonders just how plush Derek's trust fund is, after seeing the "undergrad apartment" which few dotcom lottery winners could afford to keep up. There's a relentless prettiness to most of the backdrops even when they're trying to look noir, but that can be forgiven in a film which is really more stage play than cinema. The cinematography is mostly effortless and unobtrusive; there are a couple of arty little touches, but it's not self-indulgent.
Supporting cast do their jobs reliably; the brief scene in a high school admin office (where "Jones" is pursuing her investigation) is nicely played all the way into the far background of the shot. Some of the young extras definitely seem to be trolling for work (it's just amazing how pretty everyone is in this universe!) but it's all in good fun.
Marsden does very well with the Ripleyesque protagonist. His Marvel Comics good looks and alarming glibness are quite convincing; I loathed "Derek" after only a few minutes, and enjoyed Marsden's enjoyment of the role. Actually I should confess, I watched the film only because I like Edward James Olmos and never miss a chance to see him even in a small part; but was pleasantly surprised -- enjoyed it far more than I expected to.
One thing I appreciated about the script was a minor surprise value.

I had HBO on in the background when this movie came on and I never intended to watch it, I mean a movie called "Gossip"? Oh that really sounds like fun. But as soon as the pictures flashed across the screen and "Jones" [Lena Headey] started talking, I knew judging the movie by the title was a bad move on my part. The angles and colors, wardrobe, etc. of this film were amazing to me. I thought it was very well directed. The idea of the movie had started out well. Three college students planned to start a rumor and see how far it went as a topic to write on for a class. Though I thought casting Joshua Jackson to play any character in this flick was a bad, bad idea. The only reason I would think about labeling this a "teen flick" is the fact that he was in it. Toward the end, I thought they took reality way out of proportion, if I hadn't have liked the movie so well, it would have easily ruined the entire film. Though there are a lot of negitive comments for the movie, I'd give it a chance if you have the time.

"Gossip" was probably one of the most incredible, suprising and phenomenal movies I have ever seen in my life! I went to go see the movie in the first place was because the trailer seemed intriguing and I highly admired Norman Reeedus's acting abilities. I thought it was just going to be about a stupid rumor that got around by mistake. Boy, was I wrong! I liked the fact that a rumor was set around on purpose for a research project. Then, it just got out of hand. It turned out that what appeared to be a fake rumor, was actually based on a truth and honestly ruined lives. When the viewers found out what was really going on, I think they were very suprised. You know a movie is good when you think you know everything that's going on right up until the end, then they pull the rug out from under you and the movie ends in a way that you never would have thought. That's talent! Keeping them guessing until the end, then throw them for a wild loop. That's exactly what the endless talents of "Gossip" did. When you go out of theater, then on the way home, at home, and the next day, you're still talking about the movie, you've made a wonderous discovery. You have found something really special to cherish. Even if you don't like the premise of the movie, I highly suggest that you see it. Especially if you appreciate good film making. If you do, you will not ever regret seeing "Gossip."

Gossip is a killer movie. Just when I thought I had it figured out, I found out I didnt! Besides the extrodinary plot and awsome ensemble cast, Gossip finishes off much different then you would have expected! Which is what I like in a movie, unpredictability, suspense and action! I would recomend Gossip to anyone I knew, because I dont know of anyone who I made watch it, that didnt thoroughly enjoy it! For more of my reveiws and pics check out my site at [...]

It's got a good premise: start a story and see how many people get a hold of it and how it changes before the truth comes out. It plays with the idea of yellow versus real journalism. I like that. Unfortunately, the execution is seriously flawed. We go through all of this twisty turny stuff that's telegraphed ahead of time and then gives a very unrealistic and unsatisfying conclusion to the whole thing. If you've got nothing else to do, watch it with some friends, but i guarantee that the conversation it provokes will be a lot more interesting than the film itself.
