Because of The Hangover's success, an Entourage movie is for sure happening

07.29.2011

Have you been watching the newest season of Entourage? I haven't, but I hear it's not exactly blowing people away, and the rest of us are wondering how is it the show is still on the air after all this time.

But even if its fanbase has dwindled somewhat and it's not the pop culture icon it once was in its early seasons, that hasn't thrown any water on the rumored movie which is getting close to becoming a reality after this final season.

Creator Mark Wahlberg points to the recent success of R-rated comedies as to why an Entourage movie would work:

"I've been telling Doug, The Hangover is to me very much like Entourage, and look at all the recent success of R-rated movies."

The Doug he mentions is creator/EP Doug Ellin who has this to say about the idea:

"We’re going to do a movie," he said. "We’re going to do it, the questing is when and how quickly. Hopefully we'll come down with an idea and make it happen."

I don't think this is the worst idea in the world, as if done properly, could be pretty fun. The problem is are enough people going to be caught up on the show to go see the film, which would presumably build off of whatever happens in the last season?

This is as opposed to recent R-rated hits like THE HANGOVER, BRIDESMAIDS and HORRIBLE BOSSES where everyone went in with a blank slate. But with Entourage there is going to be a pretty significant margin of people who say "Oh I've never seen that show so I can't watch the movie." Even people like me probably wouldn't want to see it until we catch up with the last few seasons. I don't think this is going to go as well as they imagine.

Extra Tidbit: Vince just got intensely dislikable by the time I stopped watching. I think Ari should just have his own spin-off.

It's only fitting

seeing as this show is basically "Sex and the City" for guys, and that show got a couple of craptastic films.

You can show a whole lot more violence and sex on HBO than the MPAA's R-rating will allow. Just sayin'.

Slow down the hate train

" I haven't, but I hear it's not exactly blowing people away"
what credibility does that statement have. Theres only been one episode thus far.

Making this a film, is already a better idea then making a sequel to a film thats identical in every way, only in a different country.

Entourage has never lost my attention. The show is awesome and all the characters are great, there should be not hate for this show.

I'm Very Proud...

... to not have seen an entire episode aside from the pilot. It immediately struck me as a show I did not want to watch. Then when all the water cooler talking started, I really knew my instincts were right. I could care less they're trying to take this crap to theaters. I'll never see it so, who cares?

I'm proud for having run a sub 3:30 marathon pace. You're proud for... not watching a TV show? You should raise your standards - you might accomplish something in life, beyond your own feelings of "beating those punks who hang out at the water cooler."

Amen brother, I agree with everything you have to say. This is the 1st negative thing I have heard about entourage in 8 yrs.

Hope its true

As many times before when HBO series come to an end, Rome, Sopranos, a movie is in talks .. but they never seem to happen.

There has only been 1 episode of Entourage on this season so I don't know how people have or haven't been "blown away" by it. It would be cool to see a movie but if they are just now being inspired by The Hangover to do one, I can't be to hyped since none of these dicks thought it was a good idea before.

Entourage has in much in common with The Hangover as Twilight has in common with good cinema. Outside of the fact its a bunch of guys on screen together they have nothing in common. Hangover is funny, Entourage hasn't been funny in three years. And the first episode of this season was pathetic. And how is that show following Curb Your Enthusiasm??? CYE is like the funniest thing...EVER. I officially join the rest of the world in not giving a rats ass about Entourage. F$CK 'EM

Love Entourage, cant wait to see the movie. As for the success of it... Sex And The City i believe had similar ratings and that movie (First one) was a massive hit.

The show used to be enjoyable for what it was, then it just outlived it's usefulness, and the last 3 seasons have just been terrible. I think they should have ended right after Medellin bombed at Cannes.

This show has been terrible from the start. It should have been about Ari and each season being about a new client(s). Vince is in no way a believable leading man so the show looses credibility on that fact alone.

Vince is not the leading man. It's called "Entourage", not "Vince".

Entourage has a few issues

1) Too many characters for a 28 minute run time, amazingly. 2) They focus so much energy on non-story aspects of the proceedings that nothing ever happens. 3) Vinny is shockingly unlikable 4) They drop or forget story lines like crazy, making it seem like the writers are making shit up as they go along. 4) There appears to be no end game, nor was there ever an end game.

Ari Gold...

He is the only reason that show has survived this long. They should dump the rest and give Piven his own Ari Gold movie. Now that I would pay to see.
