James Marsden, Lena Headey and Norman Reedus in Gossip
Positive—This is a very good movie about the effects that one little rumour could have on peoples lives. In the movie, a few teens decide to spread a rumour about someone as an experiment to see how much it could spread. The results are awful. This is a good movie, but there are many instances of sexual conversation and a few suggestive scenes. There is no heavy sex, sex is just implied in one scene. Also, a guy tries to come on to this girl at a party, but leaves her alone when he realizes she is drunk. Language is moderate, due to one F-word and one GD. All in all, this is a mature drama that shows the effects of Gossip. Very suspenseful. Will keep you interested. Recommended! My Ratings: [Very Offensive / 5]

…a very cruel and often emotionless drama… we need better scripts and subjects written for this audience.
—Dean Kish, Nzone
…as dumb as “Disturbing Behavior” or “Cruel Intentions,” but with an irritatingly arty style all its own…
…a decent, but not spectacular premise, but never quite manages to turn into the enthralling thriller it obviously wishes to be… this “Gossip” really isn’t worth telling others about.
…ludicrous trash, but it has style, along with a nasty little sting in its tail…
—Andrew O’Hehir, Salon
…more than slightly objectionable…
—Preview Family Movie and TV Review
…“Gossip,” like its subject, juicy, but unbelievable …Raw sexual situations, language…
— Bob Campbell, Star Ledger, New Jersey
