Movie Review : Entourage

Another hit TV show makes its transition to the big screen but unlike some others Entourage has been off the small screen for a few years now. Will there be a  demand to watch and pay high ticket prices to watch the boys in a theater? I personally did not think so as I believed that the big screen couldn't bring anything new that couldn't be done on the small screen. I ended up watching this film 10 days after it's release and audiences seemed to agree with me as it was bombing (money-wise) at the theater. With that I went into it with very low expectations.

Highlights :

  • Pretty women are on the screen for the whole movie. 
  • The film gives a quick recap of the story lines from the show so just in case you forgot them.
  • Watching Haley "I see dead people" Joel Osment play against type.
  • The Entourage brotherhood is still strong and intact
  • Countless cameos from actors that guested on the TV show
Low Lights :

  • ???
Final Thoughts :

You would think since I did not have any low lights to discuss that this is the perfect movie. No it's not but when you go in with zero expectations the experience of a movie can be quite satisfying which this film was.

As a fan of the show I looked forward to watching this film at sometime and watching it with minimal people in the the theater made it more fulfilling as you could hear everyone laughing as there was not much downtown between jokes. The group still has the same dynamic and thankfully the director doesn't try to alter that as we the audience went in expecting what we have seen for years. The movie is basically one long episode as it contains the usual circumstances that you have seen for years. Naked women? check. Drugs? check. Trying to get a movie off the ground? check and the list goes on. If you are looking for something different you won't find it here but if you are wanting to laugh out loud at men being boys with little to no repercussions for their actions then you will enjoy this to the fullest. If you want seriousness or a love story you will find yourself stuck for a hour and a half.

I guess the only "knock" on this movie is that you could watch this on TV and you wouldn't miss a beat as the big screen does not add anything special. This movie does not leave you in awe but it is enjoyable for what it is which is a movie that doesn't apologize for itself and for that I say thank you.

Final Grade : B

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
