Movie star Vincent Chase, together with his boys Eric, Turtle, and Johnny, are back - and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold on a risky project that will serve as Vince's directorial debut.
Mobster and hit man Jimmy Conlon has one night to figure out where his loyalties lie: with his estranged son, Mike, whose life is in danger, or his longtime best friend, mob boss Shawn Maguire, who wants Mike to pay for the death of his own son.
A self-loathing, alcoholic writer attempts to repair his damaged relationships with his daughter and her mother while combating sex addiction, a budding drug problem, and the seeming inability to avoid making bad decisions.
This movie picks up where the TV show ended. Vincent Chase is offered a role by his former agent now Studio boss Ari Gold in a movie he is developing. Vincent agrees on the condition that he be allowed to direct the movie also. Nearly a year later, Vince is uncertain if the movie is ready, so he asks Ari for money to finish the movie. But Vincent has asked for money more than once already and Ari's bosses are not happy of how much they're spending. But he goes to their backer to ask for more money and he wants to see what Vince has shot so far but Vince won't let anyone see it yet. But he's planning a screening, and asks the backer to come to L.A. with him but he can't so he sends his son instead. At the screening Vince decides not to show it. But gives out DVDS. The son after watching the movie, says he has issues with Drama, Vince's brother who has a small role in the movie. Vince is unwilling to drop him.

(at around 17 mins) As the guys, Vince, Johnny, Eric and Turtle leave the restaurant walking out onto and along the street, there are two girls behind them. One girl is in a red dress, the other in a short grey top.
As it cuts to a wide distant shot of them walking along the street, the girls disappear. The next shot of the guys walking along the street toward the camera shows the girls re-appear. See more »
Jesus Christ, this guy snuck into another relationship.
It's not a relationship. I'm just having fun.
Fun is when you forget a girl's name while you're fucking her.

I've not written a review on here before (heck, I've written very few reviews anywhere) but I felt compelled to write one for this movie.
In a nutshell, if you're a fan of the Entourage television series you will enjoy the Entourage movie.
Without giving too much away the movie picks up pretty much straight after the final episode of the show, and itself is essentially an extended episode (3 or 4 of them strapped together) but with a bit more money pumped in. It's not the most original movie, and the plot doesn't exactly set the world alight, but that's not what Entourage is about. It's about Vince, E, Drama and Turtle, and of course the brilliantly angry Ari Gold, and the antics they get up to (and the trouble they have to get out of) in the big flashy world of Hollywood. It's far-fetched, it's over the top, there's nudity, swearing, alcohol, drugs, sex Everything that was in the TV show that made it great. Yet this seems to not sit well with some people. It's not a realistic representation of Hollywood it's an entertaining playboy fantasy of the world which is both fun and cringe worthy to watch at the same time.
Entourage doesn't try to be anything it's not. If people had bigger, wilder expectations they won't find it here. It's not trying to be anything too serious and I expected the critics to pan it but I did not expect the same harshness in the many user reviews I've read on the web. Personally after a 4 year absence I was thrilled to be watching the gang once again, and on the big screen this time. It felt like coming home after being away and meeting back up with old friends again. It felt like the TV series had never ended and I was back to enjoying it as much as I did during its original run. Vince as always is getting in over his head, E is trying hard to manage Vince and his love life, Drama is as crude and embarrassing as ever, Turtle is, well, Turtle though a bit slimmer and wealthier than last time, and Ari is the hilariously raging super-agent/studio head we all know and love. All your favourite characters are there as well as the many cameos you would expect, including the legendary Gary Busey (among others) once again! I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and so did my girlfriend who's never seen a single episode of the show, but now wants to get into the DVD box set. We both laughed a lot, as did everyone else in the cinema. Nobody walked out early, and nobody looked disappointed by the film's end.
If you enjoyed the TV series do yourself a favour don't pay too much attention to the negative reviews you may read and just go and watch this movie. It's everything I expected it to be, and now I'm just a little sad that it's over again. As much as I enjoyed it I don't think there should be another movie or TV series it's been a good run, and this was like a trip down memory lane. You don't want too much of a good thing, so let's leave it on a high note.
