"an Ari Gold spinoff would have been a lot more interesting"

After eight season of bros, babes, boobs and bongs, it took four years to see the Entourage gang back together as their adventure around the glitz and glamour of Hollywood continue. It’s basically, the guy version of Sex in the City (and look how those films turned out).

This is the actual synopsis of the film: Movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and Johnny (Kevin Dillon), are back... and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Jeremey Piven). Some of their ambitions have changed, but the bond between them remains strong as they navigate the capricious and often cutthroat world of Hollywood.

This, like the film itself, tells us nothing, with no surprises coming up; it is as dull as it sounds. Unless you’ve followed the boys from Queens right from the beginning, you’ll find the 105 minutes unfunny, confusing and flat.

This dullness is down to the four main characters Vince (who’s trying to shag Gone Girl’s Emily Ratajkowski while trying to make his directorial debut), E (who’s balancing causal sex with impending fatherhood), Turtle (who’s trying to seduce Ronda Rousey) and Drama (who’s trying to make it as big in Hollywood as his brother Vince); each as uninteresting as the next. The only saving grace is Ari Gold and you see it with director and creator Doug Ellin making Gold the central character. Which begs the question: why not make an Ari Gold spinoff film instead?

Piven is the only actor in this to have any form of charisma and has the only laugh-out-loud moment while his co-stars have the appeal of a piece of paper.

Ellin also decided the way to make this film more “fun” is to cram 30 or more cameos (I’m not including Ratajkowski and Rousey) in with their screen time so short you could make a vine of it all titled “only here to get my cheque.”

This may be in a parody world, but it doesn’t mean you can make old, unfunny jokes, let alone admire their attitudes towards women, either.

Overall - A film aimed at the fans of the TV series, but an Ari Gold spinoff would have been a lot more interesting.
