Tepid updating of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," set amid the affluence of the Hamptons on Long Island, N.Y., about a tormented hip-hop mogul (Richard T. Jones) still passionately in love with the woman (Chenoa Maxwell) who left him 10 years earlier and who is now the unhappily married trophy wife of an unfaithful Wall Street executive (Blair Underwood). Despite a solid performance by Jones, the low-budget film is weighed down by a flat, melodramatic script riddled with decidedly un-"G"-rated dialogue. An adulterous sexual encounter, brief violence and pervasive rough and sexually crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
