| Simply not appreciated
A vicious rumour is spreading like fire through the university, three journalism students planted the story, hoping to trace how it changes as it burns its path; but what goes around comes around.

With a young and talented cast, including James Marsden, Lena Heady, Norman Reedus and Kate Hudson; Gossip deserves more credit than it seems to have received.

The story is full of twists and is genuinely compelling to watch and easy to relate too; the direction is pretty stylish and achieves the necessary feel for the plot to play out, and the cast all contribute with solid performances.

It's either been overlooked or harshly criticised by far too many people, come on! It's a good thriller. 7/10

Trivia

The photographs of faces and eyes in the bedroom during the seduction of Naomi show pictures of various extras and crew members. The idea is that they are voyeurs watching Naomi and Beau, just as Derek is.


Quotes

Jones: I'm a girl with a problem. It's not like I don't know better. But I seem to have gotten myself involved a very tempting situation.


Goofs

When Derrick hands Cathy a half-filled glass after Cathy confronts him about raping Naomi, she throws it to the ground but there is no liquid inside when it hits the floor


Alternate Versions

Deleted Scenes on the DVD:

  • Travis films Jones talking about the last time she heard the rumor they started and how it has changed.
  • Travis paints over a picture of Beau on his collage while explaining what roles Travis, Derrick and Jones play in the twisted game they have created.
  • Derrick runs into Detective Curtis and tells him more lies before the detective asks Derrick about a picture of Naomi which was stolen from her room.
  • Derrick calls his parents and tries to ask them for help but they cruelly deny him. This scene was cut because the director didn't want the audience to have sympathy for Derrick. Originally director Davis Guggenheim's parents Marion and director Charles Guggenheim did the voices for Derrick's parents but unfortunately their voices can't be heard on the DVD version of this scene.
  • Alternate Ending: An extended version of the ending has Jones and Travis leaving Derrick alone in his loft when he is approached by a stranger who identifies himself as the man who arrested Derrick when he was in high school and he tells him that Naomi is now pressing charges using the video-tape of Derrick admitting that he raped her.
