The Goods, Live Hard, Sell Hard
I was really looking forward to seeing this movie in the theatre over the summer. I tried to go see it, but in a blink of an eye, it was gone.
Now I know why.
I really love Jeremy Piven’s character in Entourage, Ari. In my opinion, he makes the show what it is. I remember him saying in an interview “If you like Ari, then you’ll like this movie”. Well… not exactly. I fully understood that his character would NOT be Ari, and yes, there IS a resemblance… but it’s the rest of the movie that doesn’t live up to my expectations. One of the guys at work saw it, and told me that it was horrible. But he also hates Entourage, so I wasn’t really putting a lot of stock in his opinion.
Maybe I should have.
I dunno.. it’s not that it’s horrible, because it isn’t. It’s just that the laughs are so few and far between, which is a shame, because the movie is full of actors who are generally quite funny. You’ll recognize people from The Daily Show and The Office. It certainly has potential..
It just falls really, REALLY flat…
