Entourage, the series that aired for nearly seven years returned, albeit in the form of a movie. The famous movie star Vince and his personal, yet close entourage is getting ready for an entire new adventure, which puts the famous posse on the map once again. This movie will revolve around Vince’s directing debut, but as one would expect, things aren’t going according to plan.


Not only superstar Vince’s (Adrian Grenier) life is going swimmingly, but also the lives of Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrera) are more than ok. Nonetheless, Vince wants more than just acting alone, he actually wants to direct his own movie, Hyde. Ari (Jeremy Piven), Vince’s long time agent, who made it big, grants him this chance and at first, everything seems to be going more than well. Johnny gets to star in some key scenes of the movie, allowing him to make it big as well, whilst Eric manages the entire ordeal. Nonetheless, Vince and Eric have problems keeping the movie within budget and thus they have to ask for extra money several times, but now their last raise brings forth some issues.

When Ari heads over to the producer, Larsen McCredle (Billy Bob Thornton) and his annoying son Travis (Haley Joel Osment), they want to see how the project is going before actually spending even more money on it. Whilst things would have been manageable if Larsen himself did an effort to take a look at the project, Vince ends up with Travis, who for some reason wants to have Johnny removed from the project, but also the lead star, Vince. This means their movie might just be in danger, if not lost beyond hope.


Overall the flow of the movie is often painstakingly slow and it actually feels as if this movie could have been handled in a shorter time span. Nonetheless, the movie has an interesting topic, which was handled in a not so interesting way. Whilst true fans will probably plow their way through this ordeal, it’s easy to say that those who aren’t familiar with the series might not reach the finish of the movie. For some reason the introduction takes way too much time, whilst the ending is handled in mere moments, making the buildup to nothing rather disappointing.

Even though the series had a lot of wit, this movie relies heavily on the few one-liners, rather than actual comedy value. Some typical adult jokes can be found scattered around the movie, but many of those never really hit their mark either. Even for a no brainer movie, you can easily watch the entire movie with a straight face, with a small smile cracking when the credits roll in.

Seeing the movie is about Vince making his own Hollywood flick, it’s actually rather depressing that his creation only gets showed off for mere seconds, whilst there is an entire making off extra devoted to his movie. It would have been quite cool to see the fruits of his labor, rather than a small snippet that holds no value.


What the movie lacks in plot and flow, it makes up for in acting performances. The regular cast of the series still offers a great experience, and the many famous actor’s cameos offer something entertaining for the eye to see. At some points it’s actually more entertaining to try and remember who just passed by on the screen, rather than watching the movie itself. Other than that, the once adorable Haley Joel Osment plays an annoying douchebag and to a certain extent he does it well, whilst older viewers will probably keep wondering what has happened to the once great child actor.

The extras on the Blu-ray release of Entourage the movie are rather negligible, as it offers the same rather bland making off sequences, commentaries and not that much interesting extra information one would desire after watching the movie. Entourage does however manage to offer one of the first ever unfunny gag reels.


Entourage will offer a bit of entertainment for true fans, but those who aren’t familiar with the series will probably not find that same kind of delight. Whilst the overall topic of the movie has potential, the way it was brought to your little screen is simply disappointing. Nonetheless, you’ll find some joy in the acting performances of the well known cast and the many famous cameos. Overall, we don’t see this movie getting an entourage of its own.
