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.
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. When they appease the son, he then says he has issues with Vince. So as they ...Written by
The character, Turtle, was based on Mark Wahlberg's real life assistant, Donnie "Donkey" Carroll, who died December 18, 2005, from an asthma attack at age 39. See more »
In the film, Lloyd tells Ari that his father hadn't spoken with him since he came out - hence why he wants Ari to give him away. Yet during season 6, Lloyd asks for a promotion due to a conversation he had with his father the night before. Ari even makes a joke as to why Lloyd is upset, asking if he found out Lloyd was gay. Lloyd clarifies that his father has known for a while (again, during season 6). See more »

Vincent Chase is married but his wife walks out on their honeymoon. He decides to have a party and his former agent now Studio boss Ari Gold offers him a big role. He would do it only if he gets to direct. Some time later, the movie is almost done but over budget. Ari Gold is not happy and has to get the money from Texan Larsen McCredle and his son Travis. He's stressed as usual. Lloyd Lee is getting married. E's ex Sloan is having his baby. Vince is hot for Emily Ratajkowski. Turtle is now rich and he fights Ronda Rousey.
The gang is back and it's the same old, same old. I'm a fan of the TV show but the last few seasons were marking time. The movie has many more cameos. There are probably too many. Ronda Rousey is not necessarily a good actress but she's still better than Emily Ratajkowski. Rousey and Turtle are actually a cute couple. Ari is great as usual and I love his part of the movie. On the other hand, E's melodrama isn't fun. The story isn't quite there. There is not enough good material for a TV episode, let along a whole movie.
