Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A taut second half in which the plot turns back on itself in some surprising twists makes up for the lethargic first half."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"The movie feels longer than its 90 minutes."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Anyone who needs to sit through this movie to understand gossip is wrong probably can't be helped."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Shallow Grave by way of Cruel Intentions, a breezy, entertaining mind-twister in which things spiral out of control for lots of good-looking kids and various alliances and narrative trap doors keep the audience enjoyably guessing as to who's"
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"It has a little more style than substance, but nevertheless Gossip is head-and-shoulders above many other college-age movies."
‑ Mike Kerrigan, Boxoffice Magazine
"All style and no substance."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Gossip stays in the game until the bottom of the ninth and then blows it."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Predictable at every turn, glossy but stagy, and full of unengaging, underdeveloped characters, Gossip too is 'all just words'."
‑ Edward Lawrenson, Sight and Sound
"Takes you on a smart and sassy roller coaster ride."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"A modern day morality play about the harm that can come to those who are the targets of this kind of rancor."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Gossip isn't really worth talking about."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"With its hunks and dolls masquerading as characters, its contrived and sleazy plot twists and tawdry sex, Gossip owes less to any film genre than to TV soap operas."
‑ Loren King, Boston Globe
"Though it is reasonably effective as a morality tale on the dangers of spreading a rumor, it is even more pertinent to the perils of burying a worthy screenplay under layers of big-budget gloss."
‑ Jon Niccum, Pitch.com
"Insufferable (and interminable) in-joke of a roundelay."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Gossip seems to have been written by a program that selects elements from favorite music videos and girl-in-peril tele-movies to make one perfectly off-the-charts ridiculous film."
‑ Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner
