Remember that part in The Great Gatsby where the hip-hop mogul throws a huge house party in the Hamptons? No?
In G, director Christopher Scott Cherot has put an unlikely spin on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel by turning it into a tale of a journalist (Andre Royo) who becomes entangled in a mess of philandering and jealousy.
David Dicerto (Catholic News Service) calls it "a tepid updating of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age classic. … Despite a solid performance by [Richard T.] Jones, the low-budget movie is weighed down by a flat, melodramatic script riddled with decidedly un-'G'-rated dialogue."
Mainstream critics are rating G at about a C-minus.
