Deleted Scenes on the DVD:
Travis films Jones talking about the last time she heard the rumor they started and how it has changed.
Travis paints over a picture of Beau on his collage while explaining what roles Travis, Derrick and Jones play in the twisted game they have created.
Derrick runs into Detective Curtis and tells him more lies before the detective asks Derrick about a picture of Naomi which was stolen from her room.
Derrick calls his parents and tries to ask them for help but they cruelly deny him. This scene was cut because the director didn't want the audience to have sympathy for Derrick. Originally director Davis Guggenheim's parents Marion and director Charles Guggenheim did the voices for Derrick's parents but unfortunately their voices can't be heard on the DVD version of this scene.
Alternate Ending: An extended version of the ending has Jones and Travis leaving Derrick alone in his loft when he is approached by a stranger who identifies himself as the man who arrested Derrick when he was in high school and he tells him that Naomi is now pressing charges using the video-tape of Derrick admitting that he raped her.

This movie will show you why gossiping is bad.
Actually, I started watching this movie with my hopes down, ready to be bored to death and my only motive was that Norman Reedus being in it. Its IMDb rating of 5.6 is a HUGE understatement and is possibly preventing lots of people from watching it. The movie is quite interesting from the very beginning, and midway through it you start to feel as if you're in the college that the "rumor" has been spread around. The acting is outstanding and believable though the plot is a bit far-fetched, but it still is one of the best movies I've watched and in my opinion it deserves a nice big 8. If you like surprise endings and thrillers and you're having second thoughts about spending one and a half hours of your life on this movie, forget them and DO IT. Your time will not be wasted.
