Boys back in town

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

be­com­ing a direc­tor. How­ever, his be­hind- the- cam­era de­but has al­ready chewed up its pro­jected $ 100 mil­lion bud­get, and is still nowhere near fin­ished.

The in­com­pa­ra­bly in­flammable Ari Gold ( Jeremy Piven) is go­ing up in flames over the blowout. He’s no longer Vince’s agent, by the way. Th­ese days he’s run­ning the stu­dio foot­ing the bill for this po­ten­tial de­ba­cle.

Vin­nie’s manager and best friend Eric ( Kevin Con­nolly) is, as al­ways, try­ing to keep the peace and get the movie fin­ished in spite of Ari’s ev­er­in­ten­si­fy­ing panic at­tacks.

Vin­nie’s older brother Johnny Drama ( Kevin Dil­lon) is also in his usual state of per­sonal melt­down. Word has trick­led down that his prom­i­nent role in his sib­ling’s movie could be hit­ting the cut­ting room floor. Should that hap­pen, Drama’s al­ready burnt act­ing ca­reer will be to­tally toast.

And as for the Chase team mas­cot Tur­tle ( Jerry Fer­rara), well, he’s now a hell of a lot richer and thin­ner than you may re­mem­ber.

There is no real need to re­lay any fur­ther plot­ting for En­tourage, as sto­ry­telling is not this movie’s strong suit.

With so many sup­port­ing cast reg­u­lars to cram into the mix ( in­clud­ing fan fave Lloyd, the best gay friend Ari will ever have) and a truck­load of B- list celebrity cameos to cover, there’s just no wig­gle room for shock nar­ra­tive de­par­tures or fresh char­ac­ter devel­op­ment.

All that mat­ters to true En­tourage trag­ics is that the 24/ 7 party’n’pre­miere life­style of Vin­cent Chase and his posse is con­tin­u­ing both un­abated and un­re­pen­tant.
