Special Features


Editorial Reviews

G. is an engrossing update of The Great Gatsby, set in the Hamptons and starring Richard T. Jones as Summer G., a self-made, millionaire head of a hip-hop label. Having risen from obscurity to make his fortune, Summer pines for just one thing: Sky (Chenoa Maxwell), the woman who dumped him back in college to marry the brutal, philandering Chip (Blair Underwood). Sky's feckless cousin, Tre (Andre Royer), a pop journalist, sets her up in an assignation with Summer, leading to predictable conflicts but with unexpected consequences. Co-written and directed by Christopher Scott Cherot, G. is also an interesting portrait of American wealth, particularly the collision of old and new money in the form of a biracial aristocracy coming to terms with a hip-hop elite. Strong performances alone are enough to recommend this feature. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Summer 's Romance! February 9, 2006
By Nita
This drama filled movie involves a love triangle. Summer G, who is played by actor Richard Jones, the handsome Blair Underwood as Chip Hightower, and Chenoa Maxwell as Sky Hightower are the main characters in this film. G is a famous rapper who settles in the Hamptons to be near his former college sweetheart Sky. Sky, who also lives in the Hamptons is married to Chip, a uncle Tom, conniving, philandering, stock broker. When Sky and G run into one another at one of his parties, memories of their past love resurface.

Soon afterwards, things began to heat up between G and Sky and Chip doesn't like any of it. While G is willing to give up everything he's worked hard for to regain the love he's lost, Chip will do anything to keep her. A must have in the collection!

3.0 out of 5 stars A word for teachers April 7, 2008
Without negating what other reviewers already have said about the movie itself, let me add that this is a great counterpoint to the Robert Redford version of Gatsby. If you can get past the language (it's pretty rough, especially with several actors' overabundant use of the "f" word) and a pretty graphic love scene between Summer G and Skye (though we only see their backs) -- hey, this is a PG, after all -- it's a nice update of the original movie. I show parts of G to my inner-city high school students after we watch the Redford version. They immediately see the similarities and point out the differences, and actually get enthusiastic about the story. G has never failed to help me help my students connect to the original Gatsby. Be careful and judicious in your use of G, but think about using parts of it to help students connect to the original source material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy and shocking March 26, 2006
By R. Beve
I was really surprised at how sexy G turned out to be. I was expecting another dumb Hip Hop movie and discovered a thought provoking, hot love triangle. It had a great combination of laughs, hotness and scares. Chenoa Maxwell is beautiful. And Blaire Underwood and Richard T. are such great actors. I highly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars not great, but i would't want a refund... April 21, 2006
since there is a synopsis available above, i'll skip that part. with the great gatsby as an outline, it has a good story. c cherot did a pretty good job of interpreting it. richard jones and blair underwood do an excellent job of bringing their characters to life. unfortunately, i can't say the same for most of the remaining cast. there is some humor and pull to the supporting sidebars, but overall...they fall short. ms maxwell's performance was somewhat dry and distant, was it the material? eh...i don't know. in the end, it is an entertaining movie worth seeing. just don't get too "geeked up" about it, or you might end up disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you think it will be April 9, 2006
This movie was really refreshing. I just like seeing a movie where all the black folks weren't idiots. That being said, this isn't one of those movies where the black people are too positive. This movies had a nice mix and the acting was decent. Its a retake on the Great Gatsby but it doesn't quite end the same way so having read the book will spoik nothing for you. Check it out

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Great But Not Terrible January 10, 2008
By T.W.
It was a nice try. It's a great looking movie but the story lacks depth and orginality. Kind of a soapy ebony romance but it was still nice to see black folks transition out of the inner city. I would recommend the movie but don't go into it expecting too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for the DVD collection!!!!!! March 15, 2006
By Sasha
This movie have so many messages and it is a good movie. The director Cherot has once again proven himself. Blair Underwood is a great actor. In this movie it shows him once again to have versatility. He is showing his growth. The movie shines with passion and a message of not living in the moment and letting go of the past. The plot is shocking based on how the movie starts which when I watched it for the first time I had to watch it again due to shocks and turn of events. I can't stop thinking about the climax and the note that set everything off. This movie goes down on the list of another great cross over movie for all races.
