A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Positive Messages

Amid all the iffy/over-the-top behavior and underlying themes of materialism and objectification is the idea that friendship and family matter more than money or career.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Plenty of iffy behavior here (constant objectification of women, consequence-free partying, homophobic insults), along with a sense of entitlement. But both Vince and Turtle can be thoughtful, and in general, the main characters are loyal to each other.

Violence

Some loud yelling and arguments that veer into questionable territory: Characters bang on doors, threaten each other, and break things. A young man menaces others with a gun during a meeting. A mentor hurls homophobic insults at a former assistant, who still claims to respect him.

Sex

Women are shown engaging in various sex acts (including implied oral sex and intercourse). Bare breasts and behinds are seen, and it's clear what they're meant to be doing. Women also walk around topless at parties. Men discuss what they'll "do" to women without any awareness of how crass they sound. A man is shown masturbating (private parts blurred out). Tons of innuendo and crude talk.

Language

Constant use of extremely strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," "ass," "p---y," and "c--t."

Consumerism

Tons of materialism, with lots of label flashing and name dropping -- including Apple, Chanel, Staples, Budweiser, Avion Tequila, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Honda, Ferrari, TMZ.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Social drinking, sometimes to drunkenness. Massive parties with people downing shots, etc. A man walks around a party with a glass of pills (Molly, it looks like), and characters help themselves. Mentions of Viagra use; one character gets high on a mix of Molly and Viagra.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Entourage is a very mature "bromance" comedy inspired by the award-winning HBO comedy series of the same name. It serves up more of what the series was known for: Hollywood hijinks, sexual situations and nudity (suggested intercourse and oral sex, naked breasts and butts, tons of innuendo), curse-laden invectives ("f--k," "s--t," and much more), and, underneath it all, deeply loyal friendships. It's chock-full of celebrity cameos, as well as loads of drinking (mostly at parties), some drug content (one character walks around a party dispensing pills from a glass full of them, and another gets high on Molly mixed with Viagra), and much more -- including ever-present themes of materialism and objectification of women. A character also hurls homophobic insults at a former assistant.

Crude

Clearly not appropriate for anyone under 17, the amount of swearing and sexual behavior almost makes all of it seem almost normal and acceptable.

Entourage - the send-off that the TV series deserved, but never got.

This film essentially works as an additional season of the TV series, squashed into movie length, bringing many likeable qualities of the show, but without delv... Continue reading

What's the story?

Based on the award-winning HBO comedy series of the same name, ENTOURAGE finds actor Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his friends Johnny/"Drama" (Kevin Dillon), Eric/"E" (Kevin Connolly), and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) still navigating the shark-infested waters of Hollywood. Vince's former agent, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), is now a studio head -- and his job, as well as Vince's, is on the line, since he greenlit Vince's $100 million-budgeted directorial debut, a modern take on the Jekyll and Hyde story. Turns out part of came from a Texas investor, whose son might not be making financial decisions based on art and quality alone.

Is it any good?

While Entourage is far from perfect, there's no denying the fantastic chemistry that exists among the quartet -- or should we say quintet, since Piven is integral -- that headlines this comedy. Connolly, Grenier, Dillon, and Ferrara are what made Entourage the TV show fun, if not perfect. We may not believe the nuttiness of the situations they find themselves in -- even knowing how ridiculous Hollywood can get -- but we believe them as lifelong, life-of-the-party friends.

All of that said, we recognize that the guys live in a world apart, but is it possible that Entourage is even more misogynistic than its TV counterpart? The women here run the gamut from decorative to disdainful. They exist merely to have sex with the guys, to be contemplated as sex objects, to be discussed as sex objects, or all of the above. Where nudity is involved, it's almost always the women (so many boobs!) who are shown in advanced states of undress. Where's the intelligent commentary on all of this excess? Or are we supposed to think this really is the life?

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about their perceptions of what Hollywood is all about and whether they think they're accurate. Do you think Entourage portrays things as they really are, or is it exaggerated for effect?

  • How does the film depict friendship? Are the characters helped or hindered by their friends? Is that realistic?

  • How is sex portrayed -- and how are women treated? Are they objectified? How does their treatment here compare to the original show? What message does that send viewers?

  • What does the film have to say about drinking/drug use? Are there realistic consequences? What do you think would happen to people who behaved this way in real life? How does the characters' status impact the consequences of their actions?
