In the boorish Hollywood of Entourage, women primarily existed to be ogled—unless, that is, they were chastising Vincent Chase and his bros.

Adrien Grenier and a guy from Devo forgot that 9/11 is serious business

It’s been 14 years since 9/11, and yet some celebrities haven’t learned that the American public still takes the whole thing pretty seriously.

Jon Daly and Wendy Molyneux Drake on why the Entourage movie is so very bad

Though the American public didn’t exactly embrace the Entourage movie with open arms last weekend, the American comedy community did, launching podcasts, charity drives, and masochistic viewing marathons around the film’s release.

Who’s hungry for some Monday afternoon schadenfreude? Released just three days after the resignation of FIFA president Sepp Blatter, the reportedly execrable FIFA-funded United Passions—about the history of the beleaguered athletic association, and featuring Tim Roth as a suspiciously heroic and dashing Blatter—made…
