The ‘Entourage’ guys try to sell their cheeseball bro movie in London: meh?


I only just realized that Entourage: The Movie had already been released domestically (last week) and we still hadn’t written one word about it. That’s weird, right? I mean, lots of sites were doing “think pieces” about Entourage and whether anyone really cared about these guys anymore, but no one around here could even work up the energy to say a few words. So here are some photos from last night’s London premiere – I’m including photos of Adrian Grenier, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Jeremy Piven, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Connolly and Kevin Dillon.

So how did Entourage: The Movie do in its first few days with the domestic box office? Not great. It opened last Wednesday and the film came in fourth place at the weekend box office with $10.4 million, following Spy at #1 (which is a great action-comedy), Insidious: Chapter 3 and San Andreas (at #3). So… that’s why the whole crew came out in London. They’re hoping the Europeans will enjoy cheeseball bros.

So why was Entourage: The Movie even made? Who thought it would be a good idea? Did Jeremy Piven need a new Lambo or something? Well, the Daily Beast ran what I thought was a good analysis of why Entourage: The Movie was met with a resounding yawn. It’s not even like people have a full-fledged hate-on for the film, it just seems boring and silly and a waste of time and energy. The DB theorizes that we can’t even complain about the misogyny of such bro-centered stories because in the world of Entourage, everyone is a vapid douchebag, man and woman. So… who’s buying this? Does anyone even care?

    There’s no explosions, no hot or smart men or women, and it doesnt look funny.
    Hard pass.

  2. Jbap says:

    I have never understood why Emmanuelle Chriqui hasn’t become a bigger deal – she is gorgeous, comes across well in interviews, and seems from the little I’ve seen her in to be a perfectly decent actor.

  3. Ally8 says:

    That documentary Grenier made about the paparazzi was very good. That’s all I got. I won’t be seeing any of this male Sex and the City, or Leo the Movie.

  4. PoppyAdair says:

    I found it pretty funny – at least as funny as the show – and it does explore some deeper themes, especially loyalty. I think it just took too long to premiere. The series ended 4 years ago and even thought the story picks up mere months after the events in the finale. that might as well be a lifetime ago for many moviegoers.

    • Allie says:

      This. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the show but I still found it funny. It was just too long after the series finale for most people to care.

    • Damn says:

      Misogyny isn’t funny.

    • SW says:

      I’ve been renting to see it. I find the show funny. Wish there had been more or better press.

  5. FLORC says:

    I saw it just to finish it. It was an ok show then. And if the movie came out faster maybe that would have helped. It was as a movie exactly as it had been as a show. With nearly a decade for the fan base to grow up they moved on.

    Biggest complaint… For all the time they said they needed to get the script right this was a lazy product.

    • boredblond says:

      Good it probably wasn’t about the script..egos and $$. I think I only got through a couple episodes..shrug.

  6. Snazzy says:

    Never watched the show, won’t go see the movie. The whole thing looks like an idiotic waste of time and money. Now that Spy movie on the other hand … can’t wait to see it!

  7. Jenns says:

    I’m so glad Spy beat this movie in the box office.

  8. grabbyhands says:

    Granted, I never watched the show, but didn’t this ship sail about four years ago? Unless the show is a blockbuster of sustainable popularity, it would seem like you would want to capitalize on that momentum immediately after a show ends, not years later.

    • HH says:

      That’s exactly what I thought. When I saw the trailer commercials there were only question marks on my mind. It just didn’t make sense. It was one of those shows that were supposedly good when it was here (I didn’t watch), but when it was gone, it was gone. It’s not like Sex and the City where people felt a considerable void for a while.

  9. Skyblue says:

    This is how out of it I am…our theatre runs an old movie series and I automatically thought Entourage was part of it. Like Goonies, Footloose, Gone with the Wind and then Entourage. Thanks for clearing up the confusion!

  10. Kitten says:

    I’ve always been so fond of Grenier. I find him handsome and talented.
    I hope he moves on from this bro mess and begins working on some interesting projects.

  11. Skins says:

    I liked the show, but it was totally played out by the time it ended. There was no need for this movie, none of the guys became stars or anything close to it. Just seemed like a cash grab to me and I knew it would bomb.

  12. GlimmerBunny says:

    Jeremy Piven is still pretty sexy and I idolized Ari Gold. That said, I’m in no rush to see the movie. The series got pretty bad towards the later seasons and from what I’ve read the movie is more of the same. If anyone’s seen it, is there a lot of Ari in the movie? I don’t wanna see it at all if it’s Vince-centric (GOD I despised Vincent Chace).

    • Allie says:

      Ari is the best part of the movie and he is a constant throughout the whe film. He’s def my favorite too.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      Ari has some of the best lines and scenes in this movie. But only you can decide if you want to see it in a theatre.

  13. QQ says:

    Meh! we’ve moved to a time where douchebaggery Isn’t celebrated anymore hence this movie is about 5 years too late …even with all those cameos no one was paying for this Leonardo Dicaprio Mockumentary

  14. Ann Carter says:

    I thought it felt like another episode, nothing more, nothing less. My husband and I were happy to pay to see it. We missed them.. This show wasn’t iconic, but these characters and their loyalty to each other is special and gets under your skin.
    I’d pay 15 dollars just to hear Ari
    yell, “Llllllllloooooooooooyd!!!”

    • Haolebunny says:

      I enjoyed it too. My boyfriend, not so much, but he never watched the series so he had no clue as to the characters relationships. I miss Ari and Lloyd!!

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        Aloha! Great user name!

        I saw it last Friday with a friend who had not watched the show. I had to whisper a few explanations to him, but despite not knowing much of the back story, he enjoyed it.

        HOWEVER, I think people who did watch the show likely found it funnier and more interesting. Also show watchers know to be on the lookout for all the celeb cameos and the subtler jokes.

  15. LAK says:

    It’s very niche, but that niche isn’t big enough to support a full fledged film. Not everyone enjoys wall to wall d-bags.

  16. Ashling says:

    I watched the show occasionally. I never thought it was great.

  17. Josefa says:

    Like most people here I just don’t get why someone thought this was a good idea.

    1) The show was over 4 years ago and everyone forgot about it.
    2) The show did well with ratings, but never had a cult following like Friends or GoT.
    3) All of these guys are C-list actors.
    4) Year after year people are becoming more vocal about misogny in the industry, and that’s what the show was known for.

    The only reason you could have to watch this movie is being a big fan of the show. And as covered in points 1 and 2, we’re not talking about a particularly sizable group. The only explanation I can find is these guys are great friends and just wanted to work together again? Because from a business PoV this makes no sense.

  18. lila fowler says:

    Have any of the main guys done anything of importance since the show ended? I haven’t even seen Piven in too many things. It’s like they all got together–they have lots of free time–and wanted to resurrect whatever seconds were left of their 15 minutes. This is a few years too late. No one cares anymore.

    Next up, a Sopranos movie?

    • Mac Aroni says:

      Piven’s probably the only one who was working. He is the star of Mr. Selfridge.

    I will not spend a dollar to fatten that mark wahlbergs wallet or his ego
