If you haven't seen any of the 'Entourage' TV series (which ran from 2004-2011), then you may occasionally be at a loss during the film. The film starts off with a brief 'where-are-they-now' (on a yacht in the Mediterranean, surrounded by dozens of women, obviously), but doesn't offer much background otherwise, assuming if you're watching it, you already know the four main characters - Vince (Grenier), Eric (Connolly), Turtle (Ferrara) & Drama (Dillon) - plus Ari (Piven), who is almost more essential to the show/film than any of the others.
As usual, there's plenty of guest stars - Wahlberg, Alba, Favreau, Neeson, Grammer, Busey, Saget, Spade, Hammer, various NFL players - which sometimes add something to the film, but often seem unnecessary and seem to be there purely to make it feel like Hollywood. There's a minor plot for each of the entourage - Vince directing his first film; Drama hoping for a breakout role in that film (& getting embroiled in some online retribution); Turtle trying to get date a girl who happens to be a professional wrestler; and Eric doing pregnancy things with his currently separated wife. Nothing revolutionary plot-wise and - besides Royal Blood at the start, Jane's Addiction at the titles and Tame Impala in the middle - there's some very average music throughout.
Ari is slightly calmer and - even though he still screams and says mean things - he comes off as more charming and less abrasive than before. Great to see Piven & Thornton acting together - arguably to only two 'real' actors/stars in the film! Also, credit to Haley Joel Osment, who plays entitled, ignorant hick superbly. The main issue most people will have with this film is its portrayal of Los Angeles - young/skinny women in bikinis (or not), always a party, always sunny, always a brunch. Possibly true, but it does often feel plastic/forced. However, the film isn't bad - it just feels like three episodes rolled into one, with no real sense of tension or resolution at all. It's just a comfortable ride with familiar faces.
