Entourage is Enjoyable but Empty

In 2004, HBO premiered a series that was loosely based on Mark Wahlberg and his experiences when he and his childhood friends moved to Hollywood. Show-runner, Doug Ellin, took this loose association and applied it to his New York background, and created the show, Entourage. It became a well-received show that showcased the loyalty of friends in the presence of all the glitz and glamour that Hollywood has to offer. In its eight seasons, Entourage racked up 26 Emmy nominations and 6 wins. What Sex and the City meant for women, Entourage meant for men. So, it is no surprise that 4 years after the show ended it is following in Sex and the City’s footsteps, and is releasing a feature-length film in the theaters.

Entourage follows movie star, Vince Chase (Adrian Grenier), and his best friends, Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), as they try to live out the largest dreams in Hollywood. Wanting girls, money, and fame the boys will stop at nothing to achieve their goals-that even means taking on a risky movie project with their frequent business partner, Arie Gold (Jeremy Piven). This movie, which is also Vinnie’s directorial debut, can be the one project that could make or break all of them.
