With its stacked moral deck, student stereotypes and false, halfhearted ending, "Beware the Gonzo" is really formula straining at the seams to be more.

Creates a recognizably adolescent milieu that's also a workable metaphor for the anxieties of the 21st-century press corps.

"Beware the Gonzo" isn't bad, it's just that for a film aiming to celebrate media rebellion it feels timid and unadventurous.

A crusading young reporter's high-school underground newspaper becomes a rallying point for the bullied and the outcast in this low-budget drama filmed in Brooklyn and Queens.

"Beware the Gonzo" is a thoroughly amateurish effort at capturing clued-in and smartass teens.

A dramedy set in the present day that doesn't seem to know much about the present day.
