Eddie "Gonzo" Gilman (Ezra Miller) is starting a revolution. When the wild-eyed rebel journalist is ousted from his prep school's newspaper by its very-popular editor Gavin Riley (Jesse McCartney), Gonzo starts an underground paper, "The Gonzo Files", to give a voice to all the misfits victimized by Gavin and his cronies. With help from the mysterious Evie (Zoe Kravitz), "The Gonzo Files", become a runaway hit and turn the school upside down. Gonzo soon learns that the truth comes with consequences in this fresh teen-angst comedy. Beware the Gonzo also features Amy Sedaris and Campbell Scott.

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times

    The directing debut for screenwriter Bryan Goluboff, Beware the Gonzo isn't bad, it's just that for a film aiming to celebrate media rebellion it feels timid and unadventurous.

  • 50

    Slant Magazine

    As Beware the Gonzo happily dreams up its nerdy hero's victories over bullies, school censorship, and feeling like a nobody, it seems to do so from another time.

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Its serious intentions notwithstanding, Beware the Gonzo is essentially a comedy with a mean streak; its portrait of the big man on campus is truly venomous.
