Consensus: Gossip drags on far beyond its entertainment value.

Jeff Strickler
Minneapolis Star Tribune

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

The movie feels longer than its 90 minutes.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Anyone who needs to sit through this movie to understand gossip is wrong probably can't be helped.

Rick Groen
Globe and Mail

All style and no substance.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

Gossip stays in the game until the bottom of the ninth and then blows it.

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.
