AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Entourage launches with an abundance of hedonistic spectacle and tinseltown satire, but neglects to establish why audiences should root for these boys from Queens.

Tv Season Info

The HBO series Entourage followed the misadventures of rising Hollywood star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and the childhood friends he keeps close to him. Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly) is his manager, Johnny "Drama" Chase (Kevin Dillon) is his trusted bodyguard, and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) is his often incompetent driver/gopher. Vincent's agent is the loudmouthed, overbearing Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven). The eight-episode debut season of the program finds Vincent weighing his options after becoming a breakthrough star because of his last film project. As Eric and Ari fight over the direction of Vincent's career, Drama tries to get an acting job on Vincent's newest movie, which is being made by a young director who does not't see eye-to-eye with Eric, even though Eric pushed Vincent to act in the project rather than take a million dollar payday to be in a probable blockbuster. Also, the guys consider attending a high school reunion, Eric gets involved with one of Ari's employees, and Vincent lets his newfound success bring him more luck with the ladies.

Critic Reviews for Entourage: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (14)

Those, like me, who are immune to the show's charms see it as a broadly satiric portrait of four callow jerks.

The four principal characters are basically likable despite their base-level needs and instincts. They're kids in a candy store, inhaling all that Hollywood has to offer before their expiration dates run out.

Gorgeous and slightly dense Vince and the longtime pals... can all be shallow, self-indulgent and sexist. But there's a pathos about these 20-somethings, individually and as a group, that's affecting.

Top Critic

Entourage only partially realizes that it's about the glee of male exploitation, which is too bad... If the writers took another step back from their immature characters, the show's satirical edge might be sharper.

Entourage is pure viewing pleasure, made even more so by the easy rapport among the actors.

Entourage is a fun-spirited look at life most of us will never know.
