Before we begin, It’s worth noting that the Entourage movie isn’t made for critics, it isn’t made for the general public. It’s made for the Entourage fans. I was a huge fan of the HBO show that begat this. When the show ended in 2011, I felt a void in my heart that could only be filled by a follow up.
The movie picks up an unspecified amount of time after the TV series, it could be two weeks, it could be two months. Vince is now freshly divorced after a nine day marriage and his former agent is now a high-flying studio boss, who has the perfect role in mind for Vince.
There’s just one catch, Vince wants to direct, can Vince direct? It doesn’t matter. In fact the overall plot of the movie doesn’t really matter, what’s important is that the boys are back in town.
If I have one criticism it’s that it doesn’t feel like a film, it feels like four episodes of the TV series stitches together, but that is also the fun of it. It doesn’t feel like just another big screen adaptation of a successful series.
If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll love this, if you’ve never seen the series then there’s probably nothing here for you.
