Beware the Gonzo is a 2010 romantic comedy-drama film written and directed by Bryan Goluboff. The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2010.

Eddie "Gonzo" Gilman is the head geek at his high school—and determined to do something about it. When Gavin, the popular editor of the school paper, fires him, Eddie obtains revenge by establishing an underground paper of his own. He gains popularity and makes a new friend, Evie Wallace, and it soon gains the attention of the principal, escalating to a bombshell crisis.
