Gossip is a 2000 American teen drama film directed by Davis Guggenheim and written by Gregory Poirier. The movie stars James Marsden, Lena Headey, and Norman Reedus in leading roles. It is a story of three college friends, Derrick (Marsden), Cathy (Headey), and Travis (Reedus), who are studying journalism at a New York university. They are all aspiring journalists and are preparing for their final exams.

The story begins when Derrick and his girlfriend, Naomi (Kate Hudson), break up after a nasty fight. Derrick is devastated, but his friends Cathy and Travis come to his rescue. They decide to cheer him up by going to a party. At the party, they overhear a rumor about Naomi and plan to use it as a story for their journalism project. Their project is to create a "rumor experiment" where they will create a fake rumor about a classmate and see how quickly it spreads.

The rumor is that Naomi had sex with her professor, a famous writer named Professor Goodwin (Eric Bogosian). Their plan is to start the rumor and see how much it changes by the time it reaches Naomi. However, things get out of hand when the rumor takes a life of its own and the three friends find themselves entangled in a web of lies and deceit.

As their experiment becomes a sensation and the rumor spreads, Naomi is devastated when she hears about it. The rumor starts to destroy her life, and she loses her scholarship and is shamed by her family. Naomi confronts Derrick and Cathy, accusing them of starting the rumor. However, they deny everything and blame Travis. Travis, who is the most implicated in the rumor, denies having anything to do with it and blames Cathy.

As the situation spirals out of control, Derrick and Naomi patch things up and begin a secret relationship. Cathy is expelled from the college for her role in starting the rumor. Travis, on the other hand, becomes increasingly unhinged as he tries to escape them and the consequences of his actions.

Gossip explores the themes of deception, betrayal, and the repercussions of the lies we tell. The movie sends a message about the power of words and how rumors can destroy lives. It also raises questions about truth and the consequences of lying.

The movie is well-directed and well-acted, with solid performances from Marsden, Headey, and Reedus. The chemistry between the main characters is palpable, and the story is engaging from start to finish.

Overall, Gossip is a compelling drama that examines the impact of rumors and the consequences of deceit. It is thought-provoking and entertaining, with a powerful message about the dangers of gossip. If you're a fan of drama and suspense, Gossip is definitely worth checking out.

Gossip is a 2000 mystery with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.9 and a MetaScore of 31.
