Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Gossip Gone Too Far: A Thriller July 3 2004
Format:DVD
The 2000 film "Gossip" which was not mainstream or even that much publicized stars attractive young people- James Marsden, Joshua Jackson (from Dawson's Creek)and Kate Hudson. The movie is a bit of a thriller and teen angst drama about the negative consequences of gossip and the evil it can produce. Set in a college, three roomates decide to spread a vicious rumor about a rich girl (Kate Hudson) who gets drunk at a club party. The rumor is that she was date raped by her date. This results in dangerous problems for many of the characters as slowly the truth is developed. The movie may lack some substance as it attempts to be a serious drama about the evil nature of gossip. Like other reviewers have claimed, it's a bit of an intense and dark soap opera in which good looking people set out to harm others. In this case, it's a lot like Cruel Intentions which was in itself a modern take on the French series "Dangerous Liasions".
The movie is very dark. Some of the mystery is vague as we don't know what to believe is true and what is just gossip. Eventually we discover that James Marsden's character Derek Webb is the real villain and the cause of all the trouble. He had been the high school boyfriend of Kate Hudson's character "the poor little rich girl" as he described her. He raped her and again at the party. His lying and scheming comes to an end as he is caught red-handed in confession at the end of the film. The movie is a pretty adult film and not to be seen by too young an audience. I believe there is enough R rated material here to indicate that is intended to be viewed by a mature audience- violence, (...)and language. The college classroom scenes are by far what most attracted me to the story.

A unique plot line with some twists along the way. Keeps you glued and Kate Hudson played a great role as did Joshua Jackson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Gossip March 9 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of my favorite movies, it's well directed and has a good message at the end and James Marsden is so hot. I'm wondering why people found it confusing because it was pretty straight forward... I'm in my 20's and don't get the comparison of it being a "12-17" crowd thing, it makes me wonder if people who say that even went to college...like drinking and partying doesn't happen..get real. I think the biggest problem is the touchy issue of the rumor being spread having to do with date rape. Overall the movie is worth seeing, the acting was great and I also liked watching the commentary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good...but not great 'gossip' to spread. Feb. 1 2004
Format:DVD
While the premise of the movie was interesting, and the cast was good looking, it's a movie you might want to see once but not again.
'Derek', 'Jones' (the only female) and 'Travis' live in Derek's overly lush apartment with rent that had to range in the high thousands every month ('Travis' doesn't even have the money to pay his side of the rent.). Though we're supposed to be convinced that everything is covered by Derek's trust fund.
They're college students (Freshmen even.) but old enough to drink. Derek has a full bar and the three go to clubs and bars more than twice in the movie. Derek seems to have a thing with saying "Let's all just have a drink."
The three decide to spread a rumor for a class and track it's progress and how much it's changed when they hear about it again. The rumor itself was, at a party all three and many other students attended; a rich girl named Naomi has sex with her date Beau in a bedroom upstairs. Naomi is supposed to be a sweet and celibate girl and as it turns out, she can't remember a thing anyway from the party.
Accusations, bad versions of the rumor and fights ensue because of this. Which leads to Jones starting to feel bad, especially because it was her idea to start a rumor for class. But the rumor itself was thought up by Derek. Travis...does all the work it seems. He's the artistic and loyal one of the three.
Travis is the only one we see recording any facts for the assignment from endlessly making graphics that show these events happening and putting them on his wall (Derek: "What are you going to do, turn in your room?") to recording students' thoughts, while Jones fights for 'the truth' behind events that take place or have taken place and while Derek revels in his lifestyle, bar and popularity with women.

2.0 out of 5 stars a predictable thriller Oct. 9 2003
Format:VHS Tape
gossip is really predictable and it really got stupid and the camera views and the acting went dry. it helps with the help of Norman Reedus(Deuces Wild, Boondock Saints and Blade2) and Eric Bogosian(Undersiege2, a bright shining lie and igby goes down).if you watch closely, the emotions of Lena Headley are great and im saying this in a sarcastic way. James Marsden is basically a washout in this

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring and Stupid Oct. 6 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
A very boring and stupid film about college freshmen with a kindergarten maturity level. The movie is horribly slow to get to the point and is riddled with nonsense dialogue: I've heard better lines in "Fast Times At Richmond High" thank you.
Altogether a very forgettable film that has a lot of talk about nothing. Don't believe the great reviews about this film: you might like it if you're a 14-17 year-old fantasizing about how "cool" college life might be with all the "cool" people and "parties." If you're not in that category, skip this boring film and save both your time and your money.

"Gossip" is no better than most "thrillers" aimed at the 12 to 17 crowd, although considerably less profound and lacking a true meassage. Read more
