The Entourage Movie You Need To Live Is On Its Way

If you were already pressing cold steel to the side of your head at the prospect of surviving a Turtle-less existence, chase away those thoughts of suicide for at least a year or two more: the Entourage movie is definitely happening. Well, allegedly. “We’re going to do a movie," creator Doug Ellin confirms. "We’re going to do it. It’s a question of when and how quick. We’ll sit down and come up with an idea." Co-producer Mark Wahlberg adds, "“Well, I said if I had to finance myself, I’d do it. I certainly hope it has a chance to become a feature film, everybody always says the episodes are too short. [Viewers] want to go on a journey. The Hangover to me is like Entourage." And much like The Hangover, Entourage will still churn out two films before your precious Arrested Development movie even goes into pre-production. Heyo!

    Can I sort of play devil's advocate for Entourage's comedic value? My buddy once called it "lifestyle porn", which it is, but it does have its comedy moments. The episode where E and the too-adorable-for-words Sloane decide to do it in the naughty place was a pitch perfect moment, worthy of any comedy snob's (like me)appreciation. I'm not just talking about the idea, it was well executed. Rarely does the show string these moments together into a great episode, but I don't think this show is the affront to comedy that Mike & Molly, Two & a Half Men, King of Queens, etc. are.
