Movie Info

What can help one woman overcome the fears, anxieties, and traumas of a lifetime? Perhaps the music of Stevie Nicks? Gypsy (Sara Rue) is a woman in her mid-twenties who is still emotionally stuck in adolescence; her job (at a drive-through photo processing center) is nothing to write home about, and her one consuming interest in life is the music of Fleetwood Mac diva Stevie Nicks. Gypsy has gone beyond collecting Stevie's records, and loves to dress up like her idol, belting out her songs in … More

Critic Reviews for Gypsy 83

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (14)

The film's two main characters are definitely worth knowing, but the movie takes them on a predictable odyssey.

Dallas Morning News
Top Critic

A mostly undistinguished addition to the long list of films about alienated and self-pitying young people.

Full Review… | July 16, 2004
San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

The film's main appeal stems from the two main characters, whose close relationship is well-conveyed and moving.

June 5, 2004
Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

It is clear that as a filmmaker Todd Stephens, like his heroes and heroines, is determined to be true to himself.

Full Review… | May 21, 2004
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Eventually turns into pathos-clogged sludge, but before that, features a string of shrewdly observed encounters.

Full Review… | May 20, 2004
L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

Saga is especially sapped of its appeal and energy by the toxically charmless titular character whose central obsession -- dressing up like Stevie Nicks and singing her material -- is curiously wedged between comedy and oddity.

Audience Reviews for Gypsy 83


I both like and dislike this film. I love Clyde and Gypsy, but I hated the shit they got put through, and that the ending was more realistic than a proper happy ending. That's life I guess.

[font=Century Gothic]"Gypsy 83" is about the token outsiders of Sandusky, Ohio. Gypsy(Sara Rue) is a 25 year old Stevie Nicks clone(I'm actually more of a Christine McVie person myself) who works at a local photo developer and drives a classic Trans Am. Her mom abandoned her 18 years before for the big lights of New York City leaving her with her father who works in a music store. Clive(Kett Turton) is a straight-A student, high school senior, gay and something of a goth. They find out about a contest called "Night of a Thousand Stevies" in New York City that is scheduled in four days time. Gypsy agrees to enter and off they go...[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"Gypsy 83" is a well-meaning tale with likable leads but it relies too much on types and caricatures to be any good. Not much of the movie is really believable with only a few scenes that have any lasting emotional impact. And why does Gypsy choose Stevie Nicks as her personal goddess? Is it her music? [/font]
