This was a good African-American movie that was a twist on an old literary classic - The Great Gasby. Summer G is a rapper, who resides in the Hamptons. Tre is a writer for a musical magazine and is visiting the Hamptons trying to get an interview with Summer G. He stops in and visits his cousin Skye and her husband, who have a home in the Hamptons. He attends a party hosted by Summer G, who recognizes his college sweetheart--Skye. Not to give away the plot, but instead to draw you in, I must say this movie is good. It shows just how far people will go sometimes for the things that they love or that they must have.

"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!"

"All I can say is wow!!! I just rented this movie from Blockbuster in mid June 2006. I really liked this movie! If anyone has read "The Great Gatsby" and liked it, you could really find bits and pieces of that book in this movie. What was very interesting about the movie is the fact that Sky left Summer G during their college years. She didn't believe in his dream of being successful in the music industry, so she went on about her business with some other dude that already had some loot and his career was already in place. No, she didn't love Chip, but the fact that he romanced her and listened to her, this is what lured her in, it was a true player move. Sky comes to find out that Chip was nothing, but a rich player or Casanova. Yes, he had the beautiful wife, Sky, but it wasn't enough. Some men like trophy wives in order to look good. I am saying that with no disrespect, but not all men want that, they want someone to love them and believe in them. Men want to be listened to as well. Chip managed to steal her from another man, Summer G. Sky cheated, bottom line, but ends up being cheated on by the man she had left Summer G for, Chip. Chip is an abusive, cheating, manipulating man. Did you see how he slapped that woman that he was creeping with? How cold was that and did it in front of Sky's cousin. I am so glad that Sky's cousin arranged that meeting with Summer G. He opened up a whole different game of creeping. He figured if Chip was creeping around on his beautiful cousin, Sky, then why can't Sky do the same and have her cake and eat it too? That was one of the twist in the movie. It was beautifully portrayed and you could feel the passion with Sky and Summer G. What was funny is the sketch book found up under Sky and Chip's bed with Summer G all up in it. I was laughing my behind off because all the while he was cheating, but she was still in love with G. The wanna-be female that wanted a singing contract was trying to bust G and Sky out because she had the hots for G. I can go on and on about this movie, but it was a very sad ending, but someone had to leave. I think that this was a very nice movie and it had a nice story line with a mixture of wealth in the Hamptons to ghetto fabulous. Hey you can't go wrong if you make it right!! It is a must have because it gives a different feel for an African-American movie. It is a movie to put in your DVD collection."
Better than you think it will be

"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"
