All a big-screen version does is help magnify how ironically un-cinematic the whole thing is.
These guys learn nothing, they don't change, they have no arc and they are never truly challenged.
It lacks the will, mandate, and talent even to attempt filmed entertainment.
This slick doodle of a movie is nothing so much as an advertisement for itself.

After a while, you expect a tale of the movie business to tell you something about the movies as well as the business, but Ellin and company have never had anything to say about that.
It's a bro-mage to itself.
Was there a crying need for a film version of Entourage? Hardly. But the movie is still a tribute to Piven's iconic performance as Ari Gold, a devil you can love.
There are some amusing moments but, like the TV series, Entourage is more interested in getting chuckles than guffaws. Maybe we should be thankful - at least the comedy isn't embarrassingly over-the-top.
You may not have missed them, but Vinnie, E, Turtle and Drama are back, as empty and self-centered as ever, in the aimless, vapid Entourage movie.
