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

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.

"Gossip" is no better than most "thrillers" aimed at the 12 to 17 crowd, although considerably less profound and lacking a true meassage. Part of the problem is that the film never comes across as particularly convincing, either in its setting or in its characters.
The film takes place on a college campus in NYC filled with the types of students that make the rest of us feel as if we wasted our own college years attending boring lectures and writing lengthy term papers when we could have been having so much more fun creating scandals and toppling any authoirity figures who block our path. These "students" could not compete with avid 4th graders, lacking any kind of discipline required to achieve academically. Their main purpose of attending classes is to be abreast of the current "rumors" going around.
This film is a mixture of a modern day Pippi Longstocking, Peter Pan and Beaver Cleaver. The motto: Let's all be obnoxious kids forever, and let everyone else try to figure out what in the world we will be doing 10 or 20 years from now (if we're still alive). There is no positive message in this slapped together piece of teen exploitation. Don't let your kids see this!**

GOSSIP is a film that tries hard to fit in to the thriller genre. It takes a while to get going, then just when it starts to gain momentum, its climax falls short of satisfying its viewers. The story centers around what happens on a college campus, when three journalism students break a story, that turns out to be a hoax. The story was planted in order to track how the twisted changes as it makes its way through campus. Things get dicey for the trio when the police are called in to investigate what really happened. The cast, led by James Marsden, Lena Headey, Norman Reedus, and the lovely Kate Hudson, do their best to keep it interesting, and so does director Davis Guggenheim. In my opinion, the script is what ultimately does this film in. Most of the characters are cardbaord cutout clones from THE SKULLS and CRUEL INTENTIONS
The best extra on DVD is the alternate ending, which I think works better, as a conclusion, than the one that is used in the final cut. There are two music videos, one from Tonic, and the other from Poe. There are a handful of deleted scenes, a Gossip montage, and un-used interview footage, conducted by the Travis character, to track the rumor's changes, and cast and crew information. Rounding out the disc's extras is the commentary track from Marsden and Guggenheim that is ok and the theatrical trailler that hardly anyone saw at a multplex, since the film had not done well at all, and had no time on the big screen.

I went back and forth about buying this title because of some of the reviews that I read. However, I decided to buy it anyway and I'm glad that I did. Gossip is really a good movie. Aside from the obvious, the beautiful people with the beautiful clothes that are beautifully photographed (Andrzej Bartkowiak take a bow) the movie is well acted inspite of the frailty of the plotline (the last 1/3) which isn't a total loss.
I was pleasantly surprised by James Marsden who gives a brilliant performance as the manipulator that squeezes compassion from the viewer - inspite of the evil that he spreads and the reason why. His roommates played by Lena Heady and Norman Reedus are first rate.
I rarely listen to the commentaries, frankly because they rarely give insight, and sometimes are just flat out annoying. The commentary by Marsden and Guggenheim is not one of those. This one is funny in parts, technical in others, but never boring.
If you haven't seen this film I recommend it - Gossip is definitely one of the better 'hip' films out there.
