Storyline Heading
Would-be writer Nick Carraway leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Romantic - This is not a traditional adaptation of the classic novel set in 1920s New York, with director Baz Luhrmann adding a lot of flashy audiovisual style that, like his other period-set films, is hardly historically accurate. As such, unlike most period-set romantic dramas, this has a lot more youth appeal though it should have wide appreciation across age groups. Fans of stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan will certainly enjoy. Adult subject matter, frequent alcohol, and some sensuality make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Although the story is faithful (at least in broad strokes) to F. Scott Fitzgerald's tale, there's a soullessness to the proceedings that saps it of energy.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average Alas, this "Gatsby" is so immense and overwrought — lumbering across the screen like the biggest, trashiest, loudest parade float of all time — that its intimacies feel like shared secrets between the director and the viewer.

USA Today Full Review
Average Frenzied and overwrought, Baz Luhrmann'sThe Great Gatsbyis a glitz-filled folly.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average When hysteria finally gives way to fatalism, the film itself seems to deflate, tacitly suggesting that the story's most delicate, complex moral reckonings are less interesting than flagrant consumerism and excess.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 114 moviegoers:
TEENS:GREAT REVIEWS from both the males and females! Three-quarters loved "The Great Gatsby." Only a relatively small percentage rated it as low as Good/Average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Just over half the males loved Gatsby. Unfortunately, quite a few were not very impressed and only rated it as an average movie. The females enjoyed it more than the males. Like the males, just over half loved it, but most of the rest rated it "Above Average," which indicates they enjoyed the movie very much.
ADULTS:As the age of the reviewer increases, their review becomes lower. Approximately half, of both males and females,loved "The Great Gatsby." Another 20% rated it above average. What's not very good is the high number of Good/Average reviews. These indicate a movie that did not impress them.
