When the first line in a movie is ‘I might need to jerk it before we even get to the boat’, you know that the word ‘subtle’ is not going to enter the equation. This spin-off from the HBO series about Hollywood star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his leeches/friends has been getting a lot of criticism because it’s sexist. Which is true… then again, so was the show, so what did you expect? Not saying it is okay, but it feels a bit weird to start complaining about it after the show has enjoyed an eight-season run.

This time around Vincent has talked agent-turned-studio-boss Ari (Jeremy Piven) into letting him direct a movie called Hyde and… no wait, that’s basically it. Sure, there are a couple more storylines but they really aren’t worth mentioning.  If you’ve ever seen the show, you know Entourage is not about any of the things why you would normally watch a show. There is no character development, there is no tension or there is no drama. Well, there is Drama, Vincent’s brother…

Instead you get sucked into the bro-verse of these one-dimensional characters that is pretty much all about all the Hollywood clichés you can think of. That’s why you get a lot of shots of tits, asses, cars, tits, yachts, asses and cameos by a bunch of celebrities that serve no purpose whatsoever. Something that is lacking in this comedy though, are jokes. Not a one to be found. Attempts? Sure, but it stops there. Yet somehow this movie flies by. Not that you’ll remember any of the details a week later…

Entourage is definitely not a good movie. Yet I can’t say it’s a bad movie either. It just kinda exists.
