Couldn't come close to the Original Version

I did really believed in "chemistry" between Sorvino and Stephens. And music is great: from the very beginning suppose to tragic end!

This was a solid adaptation of Fitzgerald's novel and Sorvino made a very convincing self-important Daisy.

An hour and fifty minutes too long!

I just remembered watching this after noticing that it was left out of the Entertainment Weekly article on the 2013 Gatsby. It said there had been two movie adaptations of the Fitzgerald book, but I was right! There was a third, and it's probably an explanation in itself as to why they left it out.

Avoid this movie as much as possible.

Perhaps it's a quest best left to fools to adapt this cherished masterpiece to another medium. But if you're an admirer of ambition, or gall for that matter, this is highly recommended. It would seem that the casting hits a few false notes, but I'll be honest. I like Paul Rudd as Nick Carraway. But everyone else in this is occasionally unintentionally hilarious. I believe there are moments when Rudd is intentionally hilarious.

One of the several versions of F.Scott Fitzgerald's famous book, brought to film, 'The Great Gatsby' is a very entertaining story, well done by all. This version was made for TV. One of the things I liked especially was at the end of the film, the producers added a biography of F. Scott Fitzgerald, with actual film clips of him and his wife and daughter. I liked this film, good for an evening's entertainment.

It's a nuisance. It's annoying. Paul Rudd excels as the rest crumbles. Alot of inaccuracies, boring. They tried hard, but failed miserably

Leo is going to make this look like complete crap.

So terrible. I couldn't stand the book but the movie was absolutely horrible. It is no wonder that it was a TV movie because it wasn't good enough to even be direct to DVD (or VHS when it came out). It makes the book seem like you've just read The Lord of the Rings and then you watched Percy Jackson. Everything about it was complete and utter CRAP. Grade: F

a decent adaptation.

Started out okay, until we meet Jay Gatsby: totally miscast. His forced use of the phrase "Old Sport" was just the beginning. The movie went downhill right after he said "I am Jay Gatsby. The set was great, music fantastic, but when the lead person is a "no-go" the rest of the cast cannot save the film.

I think this one makes the story more clear for someone who hasn't read the book, but I prefer the Robert Redford one for the costumes and look.

A corny attempt at re-creating the classic story of The Great Gatsby

A pretty good movie. Toby was dashing as usual but more could have been done with the film. Overall, I enjoyed it.
½ December 2, 2010
the story is deep and full of emotions what I didn't see in the movie. The actor is a true beau:)

Beautiful period work, but I found the story rather pointless, and Nick's character rather inexplicably involved in Gatsby's affairs. Perhaps if I'd read the book...

This version made the "romance" between Gatsby and Daisy seem even more grotesque than in the book. On the other hand, Paul Rudd made a pretty good Nick. It needed more Jordan.
