Entourage: The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Entourage's fifth season leaves our movie star in a pickle: his big Oscar shot, Medellin, is a dismal failure, and Vincent (Adrian Grenier) has burrowed away to Mexico to drown his sorrows in booze and women. How does a once-promising actor get his confidence, legitimacy, and bankability back? That's the key premise this time around, and like some of its previous seasons, is always more interesting when Vince is struggling than when he's on top. Once his crew--manager Eric (Kevin Connolly), big brother Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), agent Ari (Jeremy Piven), and driver Turtle (Jerry Ferrara)--convince Vince to get back in the game, he finds many once-welcoming doors closed. He eagerly takes a meeting with Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont (playing himself), only to feel insulted when he finds it's for a TV pilot. (His subsequent options? Appearing at a Sweet Sixteen party and doing a Benji movie.) Once a promising script about firefighters (called Smokejumpers) piques Vince's interest, ensuing episodes become a complex chess game of job-hopping, backdoor-dealing, and back-scratching, which is always Entourage's strength. As Vince watches his star fade, Grenier gets a chance to let his sunny optimism crack, even sitting in Ari's office and begging to be told he's a good actor.

The celebrity guest stars are plentiful and more integral this season. Jason Patric--playing himself--lampoons his difficult on-set reputation brilliantly as Vince's co-star in Smokejumpers. (The onetime Speed 2 star brags about being offered the lead in Aquaman 2, but turned it down: "Sequels, water: they're not for me.") Stellan Skarsgard (Good Will Hunting) plays a famous German director who clashes with Vince; Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos) cameos as a new love interest for Turtle; Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) reprises her Season One role as an aspiring singer, and Eric Roberts plays himself (who happens to deal 'shrooms on the side) in a wacky episode involving the guys' drug-fueled night of reflection at Joshua Tree. Even Mark Wahlberg, the show's producer and inspiration, plays himself in a golf scene with former agent Ari (priceless line: "What about when you told me you liked The Truth About Charlie?"). The only unwelcome cameo is in "Seth Green Day," in which the actor turns up for no other reason than to re-surface his war with Eric and annoy everyone to death. Extras include cast commentaries and a behind-the-scenes featurette. --Ellen A. Kim

I thought this season of Entourage was great, though a little depressing. I didn't really like to see Vinny down on his luck so much, but, hey, it comes with the territory. I wasn't too hip on turtle's storyline, either, cause I've always just seen him as a leech. Sorry, Turtle. Other than that, I liked it very much and would say it was one of the better seasons of the show.

Entourage is a great show, still season 5 is good but not as addictive as the others. They have prepare us for a season 6 than I hope will be more catchy than this one. If you are a fan or want to get into the show, I recommend getting this dvd set for your collection

Format: DVD
Whereas last season we had the whole Medillin buildup and fiasco this season really doesn't have the drama (and I'm not talking "Johnny"). It's kind of an interesting poke at Vince (Adrian Grenier) being criticized for beinga bad actor because, basically, he is in his actual life (let's get real, the guy better save all the money he makes from "Entourage" as he's not getting big roles in TV and Movies after this). The whole premise of "Entourage" that this guy is a star is laughable. It's the other three guys, especially Johnny Drama and Turtle, that have the funnier and more interesting encounters. Plus I find their roles much more believable than actually believing Vince is a movie star.

Given that the Ari Gold storyline develops way better and that's hopefully the direction of the show when it heads into the 6th season.

The celebrity cameos are pretty lame despite a very sexy Jamie Lynn Sigler and a gratuitous Martin Scorcese. I mean, are we supposed to take seriously that B movie actor Jason Patric (I dare you to find a single person who would specifically go out of the way to see his movies let alone pick him out of a lineup) is supposed to be a great star to rival Vince. Then again maybe "Entourage" is a parody with its tongue firmly in cheek.

The extras are lamer than lame this time around. Like all previous season DVDs, you get the season-by-season recaps, commentary tracks and, with this one, they throw in a short section on the celebs they got for season 5. Frankly, who cares at this point?

Why not bag the guys and find a new up-and-coming fake star and his entourage for Ari Gold to take to the top. In fact, I liked the whole Bow Wow (the hip hop "star") turn as a comic actor being represented by E.

Keeps Me Jumping Jan. 26 2009
By Roger P. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am 82 years old and this series has kept me jumping. The first three season were great, but the boys really hit their stride in the fourth season. The humor in this segment with Drama and Turtle is some of the best I have seen. The sub characters which are inserted from time to time are well cast. Dom and Billy come to mind. Outstanding in his ongoing role is Ari's secretary. I like the way in which Doug Ellin keeps two to three stories going within each segment, but ties them all together. The fast pace is a key element in holding your interest. I feel the best defined parts are Ari, Drama, Vince and Turtle. There is something lacking in E. I like him, but he needs to become less boyish. I hope I don't run out of steam before the series ends. How about another 7 or 8 years. If you guys will hang in I 'll certainly try. RD

Closing in on the Finale July 1 2009
By J. McQueen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The funny thing about HBO series is that they all seem to get incrementally better over time. While I thought the second season of Entourage which focused on a tremendous career setback for Ari Gold was the best, this season was excellent on its own right because it finally starts to show the unraveling and human side of Vincent Chase. Chase has been allowed to remain an aloof enigma for most of the series. It seemed that he didn't care about money, power and any of the other benefits of being a celebrity. He alienated producers, directors, agents and fellow stars on a whim seemingly without there being any negative ramifications to him. In Season 5, the crows have started to circle around Chase and his place amongst the Hollywood up-and-coming stars is questioned. Does Chase have the drive to succeed or was he just a pretty-boy whose had some lucky breaks? Is his presumption that money will continue to flow in as long as he keeps a detached but positive demeanor still valid? What will happen to his relationships with his agent, Ari and publicist, Shauna as his star starts to dim? And most importantly, will the end of the series be Vincent Chase resigned to the same fate as his older brother, Johnny Drama --- an actor who could have been a star but whose idiosyncracies and arrogance derailed him? In essence, I like Season 5 because, as funny and cool as it was, it reminds us subtly that Hollywood is just as much a rat race city as any other place; there's just better scenery.

Cruising On Success of Past Entourage Nov. 14 2009
By W. T. James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This season is decent. I was entertained, but I don't know how good it would be for someone who hasn't seen the rest of the series. Nothing of serious interest occurs in this season, since none of the characters except Drama have a job. They kind of bum around the entire time.

You do start to see a different side of Vince in the later episodes when he gets frustrated that he cannot find a good film to work on. But in general I feel like the characters just kind of ride on what they've already built in past seasons.

Still, it's like Ocean's Eleven. Not much has to happen, but it's fun just to watch the characters talk to each other.

Vinnie's Back Sept. 7 2009
By Movie Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I will admit I was less than impressed with Entourage - The Complete Fourth Season; it seemd to me that the crew was really just coasting, that they weren't really challenged. This season did just that and renewed my interest in this show. While Adrian Grenier may be the star of this show, Jeremy Piven continues to steal every scene he's in, managing still to shock me with his outrageous determination to make sure his client stays on top. This one is a keeper.

Still Got It Going On Nov. 2 2009
By The JuRK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I really have to wonder how much of this show feeds off the "reality" of Hollywood. Ideas for storylines (I think I overhead a commentary about basing Vincent driving around to see lines for AQUAMAN on Tobey Maguire driving around to see lines for SPIDERMAN), guest appearances lampooning real stars--the fact that Jamie Lynn Singler is actually dating the actor who plays Turtle who's dating Jamie Lynn Singler is perhaps the bizarrest moment in all of this!

You laugh at a scene and wonder: did they base this on someone real? Who was that difficult German director? Are all studio heads this vindictive?

I liked this season because Vincent Chase is finally being challenged by the very business that's handed him the world. It's all been so easy up to now. Whether making millions of dollars or losing millions of dollars, Vincent has always just shrugged his shoulders, ready to go back to New York City when the party ends. ENTOURAGE is smart enough to know that was never the real option behind this superstar. It's good to see some ambition with him.

But the person I really watch this show for is Jeremy Piven's Ari Gold. He's been my clear favorite for all five seasons. And for all his obscene bluster and crazy energy...he's really a decent guy. He looks out for his family, he works hard for his clients. Even at war, he's difficult to hate when he's not on your side. As long as they don't soften him too much, I'll always come back to see more of Ari's antics.
