We're quite sure that the Gossip pitch and on paper version is a full frontal assault on Hollywood clicks and the shallowness of rich actors through the rose colored lenses of intelligent college students. While the initial beautiful people that go clubbing and like art are acceptable bubble-gum escapism at first, it isn't long before the whole affair runs out of steam and transforms into a "did-he or didn't he?" amatuer affair. To add insult to injury comes in the ridiculous form of a twist ending that syphons any remaining credibility out the window.

Gossip begins like a guilty pleasure with beautiful looking people drinking a lot at art parties and waxing philosophical about rumors, news, media, and gossip.

It's not too long before the rumor spins out of control sending the victims of the gossip into the center of a homicide and rape investigation.

Sounds juicy, huh? Too bad Guggenheim decides to make the whole thing a "twist" ala M. and wastes a decent build up. The outcome is a way over the top, implausible, annoying soap box speech on why people shouldn't gossi...
