So I hadn’t actually seen the last 3 seasons of Entourage when I went to see the movie but you know what? It didn’t matter. I honestly don’t think it would matter if you hadn’t seen any of the series. There’s an ongoing ‘interview’ with Piers Morgan that sums up the show in about three minutes at the outset.
This movie was freakin hilarious. It was like my love affair with the boys had never suffered an abrupt withdrawal from the HBO universe at all and we picked up pretty much right where we left off. They filled me in on the shenanigans they’d been up to in the first ten minutes and voila! Ready to go for the rest of the episode movie!
The thing I loved best about the movie was that while the characters had grown up a bit, they were still the boys. Still intensely loyal to one another, still down for pranking each other, still ready to offer only the mocking support that all best friends offer… or maybe that’s just my friends. Ahem.
The story was both accessible and very Hollywood, just like the show. No surprise there. Tons of fun cameos. I think my favorite was Kelsey Grammer’s. Just thinking about it sets me off into giggles again. The acting was just as great as in the show. Also no surprise. These guys were together for eight years or so; you don’t just lose that kind of chemistry.
It probably won’t be out for much longer, more’s the pity, so you should see it very soon if you haven’t already. Enjoy! I certainly did.
