'Great Gatsby' is playing this weekend in Johns Creek.
Leonardo DiCaprio stars in Baz Luhrmann's take on "The Great Gatsby," which is at times more style than substance – just like like the novel's main character himself – say some critics. "The Great Gatsby" is rated PG-13 and runs two hours and 22 minutes. It is now playing at Regal Cinemas Medlock Crossing in Johns Creek.

Here's what else the critics are saying: Baz Luhrmann’s new film version of The Great Gatsby is stylish, slick, funny and entertaining—a bit detached at points, a bit overblown at others. That should be all that matters. — Jeremy Mathews, Paste Magazine Just because a film looks like it was dipped in 18-karat gold doesn’t mean it’s rich in quality…

One critic calls the Tyler Perry produced comedy, "a long, boring buildup that finally pays off with scattered laughs in the second half."
The premise, courtesy of the film's official website: Sparks fly when Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) crashes the preppy Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons to ask for their precious daughter Grace's (Kerry Washington) hand in marriage. See 'Peeples' at Regal Cinemas Medlock Crossing in Johns Creek. For more theater information, show times and pricing, click the link above. Wade might be a fish-out-of-water among this seemingly perfect East Coast clan, but he’s not about to let himself flounder.
