Critic Reviews for Gossip

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (20)

A taut second half in which the plot turns back on itself in some surprising twists makes up for the lethargic first half.

All style and no substance.

Gossip isn't really worth talking about.

Jan 1, 2000

The movie feels longer than its 90 minutes.

Jan 1, 2000

Gossip is like one of those flashy, cutting-edge magazines -- it looks cool but it's no fun to read.

Jan 1, 2000 | Full Review…

Loose lips will surely sink this silly, shallow melodrama that turns upon the havoc wreaked by rumor.

Audience Reviews for Gossip


Trashy, but good. Slick looking 90's film with a mostly unlikeable set of characters and a few twists and lies. Kate Hudson is good, but Marisa Coughlan steals every scene she is in. It's surprising she never became more popular as an actress.

The second half is a lot more interesting than the first. It is one of those movies where I was beginning to suspect the ending way before it showed itself, but when it happened, it was unbelievable.

The great concept of GOSSIP nearly got killed by a weak execution, poor performances and a juvenile, lightweight plot that tries to pass as dense. Nevertheless, it doesn't fail completely. I may be biased, but James Marsden's performance as evil Derrick Webb is quite amazing. Add an impressive soundtrack by Graeme Revell and an incredible twist ending, and you almost forget everything this flawed little film did wrong. Almost.

Well pretty surprised with thiss movie ! the storyline really is clever and exciting and brilliant but the directer and prodcer did thi smovie no justice there wasnt a lot of suspense and pretty predictable ! this movie culd of and should of been better but i stiill really enjoyed it and it is worth a watch! Three students spread a rumour to see how fast it travels and how much it changes but what starts as a simple little lie escalates to a full blown witch hunt as the rumour is turning into a criminal act and then lies of llies are told so who are you going to trust and believe A nice little thriller with a lot of potential but we'll just have to stick with this worth a watch!!
