Entourage

Jays Rating:
Actors: /

The comedy film Entourage – based on the award winning HBO series that ran from 2004 to 2011 – picks up where the series ended. During the final episode of the television show, Ari Gold (Jeremy Tizen) was promoted to studio head of Time Warner. His first big decision was to give one hundred million dollars to movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) to star in and direct a film. (Even I can see the potential problems in that.) Vincent involves his entourage in the film by making Johnny Chase (Kevin Dillon) and Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly) stars and producers while Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) is still the designated driver for the group. The problem begins (or at least one of the problems) when Vincent tells Ari he needs ten to fifteen million dollars more to finish his film. After a few hysterics, Ari makes plans to meet with his investor (Billy Bob Thorton) to ask for more money. Following this initial complication, we see the beginning of the so called “real” problems like finding girls to sleep with and Ronda Rousey promising to go to bed with Turtle if she can’t knock him out within 60 seconds.) I have to admit I rarely heard of the television series but it can’t possibly have been this raunchy or have had such bad language. I also don’t remember laughing one time during this movie. I couldn’t count how many times they said the F word and my wife refused to keep track of all of the topless women on screen. (I’m guessing the target audience is men between 18 to 25 years old.) The first hour was absolutely awful and I would have left if I didn’t have to stay to review the movie. The last half hour was a little better (it couldn’t have been much worse) with the story actually becoming more interesting and the actors even adding a little emotion. The four key actors did they best they could considering the script. On the bright side, there were several cameos by Jessica Alba, Liam Neeson, Mark Wahlberg, David Spade, Kelsey Grammar, Gary Busey, Bob Saget and more. (The cameos didn’t do much for this blind guy, but my wife enjoyed seeing the stars.) I’m giving this juvenile film a D+ rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals. I rely more on a good story line than special effects. Visit my website at: blindsidereviews.com
