Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

This movie was very well done except for the name, Gatsby.  You would think the humans in Hollywood would check out details to make sure they are accurate.  This movie is an adaptation of a story which was discovered painted on a rock on Long Island---possibly  by ancient astronauts.  In future references, I will use the correct title, The Great Catsy.

Jay Catsy, played by Leonardo DiCaprio moved into a fancy house on Long Island, and he was known for his lavish weekend parties.  He meets Nick Carraway, who was his neighbor, and they became friends.  He was able to live in that area with the wealthy because he was heir to the Carraway family fortune which they made by competing directly with sesame seed families.   SPOILER ALERT:  Before the movie ends, you find that Catsby has been hiding a big secret all that time--he was a CAT!  I might add that casting "Leo" in that role was perfect.  I don't think anyone could have played a more convincing cat.  Leo is a perfect name for a cat!!!

I give this movie 4 paws up, a lot of tail wags, and some kisses.  It is a movie that can actually live up to the snacks you get at the theatre.  It is an 8 1/2 out of 10 on the human movie scale.  Overall, this is a very enjoyable movie even it the fashions are outdated thanks to the movie being set about 400 years ago.
