WHAT WENT WRONG WITH THE ENTOURAGE MOVIE

entourage-movie-castcut

We loved watching Entourage on TV and couldn’t wait to see the movie, despite negative reviews. What a letdown. The naïve wide-eyed young men who just arrived in Hollywood from Queens were gone. We could no longer identify with them because success had turned Vinnie and his pals into those self centered white men who celebrate excess and male privilege in Hollywood. Ego, money, and trophy women were all that mattered. Almost all the guys became as obnoxious as Ari Gold and HIS overacting was unbearable. The F word was in almost every line of dialogue – have never seen ANY movie with more F bombs. Even Jessica Alba awkwardly hurled several in her brief cameo. Jessica Alba! In fact EVERY guest star used the F word repeatedly. The guys we liked on TV had morphed into first class sexist jerks. Success has obviously gone to writer/director Doug Ellin’s head and he’s turned into a real life Ari Gold. It’s not pretty.
Afterthought: The movie’s opening credits were awesome and photography was exceptional.

    They did the same thing with Sex & the City. Taking a pretty good series & ruining it with not one but two horrific films.

    Why the reference to “white men” and not just “men”.

    Because white men still run Hollywood

    The only thing I can spread are germs from coughing. Sigh. : (

    I’m surprised Jessica Alba even got a part in this film. Very few if any producers will cast her.
    That is why she now sells toxic products produced in China

    Those men are liberals. The most caring, kindest, most compassionate people in the world. Liberals ALWAYS know what’s best for folks.

    If there are few roles for, say, women over 40, there must be a good reason for it. To question it would be unthinkable.

    I AM SO GLAD IT FLOPPED. IT JUST PROVES THAT THE MARKETING OF A MOVIE DOES NOT MAKE IT A HIT. I DONT KNOW ANYONE WHO WATCHED THIS SHOW, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, MAD MEN………WHAT DETERMINES THEM ALL TO BE HIT SHOWS. ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS PUT AN AD IN ANY TABLOIAD MAGAZINE SAYING ITS GREAT, WHEN IT ISN’T.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
