  • Exactly the opposite of why I watch Entourage.

    An episode that takes places at a Bat Thingmajingy. Not even of someone we know, but Ari\'s oldest daughter. I can think of a dozen of more exciting things than this. Like a herd of sheep sleeping in the grass.

    And no, it\'s not like throwing in lots of marihuana is going to change things. Or the hot British waitress. It\'s not going to sway my opinion that this episode sucked. If I wanted a Bat Mitzwah I would\'ve become a Jew a long time ago. I want the movie industry, I want the celebs, I want the flashy life. I don\'t want to see the Jewish party where a nine year old girl becomes \"an adult\". No, that\'s not my cup of tea.

    The speech Turtle and Drama gave to the two little Jewish boys about how bad smoking weed is was kind of nice to watch, even though you know they only put it in there to please all the anti smokers out there.moreless

    Vince does not hide his feelings for Mandy. Ari's long lost partner turns up. Ari's daughter has her Bat Mitzvah. Eric splurges on a new suit in order to make a good impression. While, Drama and Turtle try to make the Bat Mitzvah work to their advantage. Vince and Mandy spark a relationship with each other again, which means Vince is back to being himself and setting himself up to get heartbroken again once Aquaman begins filming. I dont think we are going to see most of the Aquaman filming, I think the Season 2 finale is going to leave us and then come back 9 months later after the film has finnaly aired.

    The bat mitzbah part of the episode was funny - mainly with Turtle and Drama, not as much with Eric and Vince, which seems to be a growing trend in the second season. Either way, this episode was good. The drama plot advanced with MAndy and Vince and the humor was very well written.moreless
  • Shooting on Aquaman begins and Vince admits he's not over Mandy. The boys go to Ari's daughter's Bat Mitzvah. Eric meets Terrence's daughter Sloan. Turtle and Drama forage for food. Terrence makes a move on Vince. Mandy and Chris decide to take a break.moreless

    This episode isn't the most hilarious episode ever but is still enjoyable to watch. This is where the Vince/Mandy storyline really picks up. With Mandy breaking up with her fiance, it opens the door to a Vince/Mandy storyline which may or may not interfere with the filming of Aquaman. We also see the beginnings of things to come in the clash between Ari and Terrence, as well as the beginning of the Eric/Sloan romance. Not heavy on cameos, Melinda Clarke still livens things up, playing herself as Terrence's wife.

    This episode is another of the plot-based episodes which are so vital to the storyline but just not as fun to watch as they should be. While there is some humor (Drama and Turtle's hunt for edible food comes to mind), it really focus more on setting plots for the second half of the season, which will all quickly fall in the place and create a much more amusing rest of the season. It really shows the 'real' side of Hollywood versus the business side, and how they inevitably intertwine. Ari throws out his Jewish traditions at the Bat Mitzvah in order to prevent Vince from talking to Terrence - what should be a family affair becomes business related very quickly. It's yet another example of the unseen realities of Hollywood life, and one of the reasons why this show is so successful.moreless
  • The funniest and best episode of Entourage!

    Ok, this has to be my favorite episode of any comedy I've ever seen. All I can say is that it is hilarious and I don't want to give away too because you have to see it for yourself. Basically, Ari's daughter is having a bat-mitzvah and Vincent has a big part in the party by beating out the grandpa. This is so funny! I was, I guess you can say, laughing my head off!moreless
  • In this episode, we watch E and Vince go toe-to-toe for a girl, and to the victor goes the spoils. Drama and Turtle provide comic insight, and James Cameron is hilarious.moreless

    When Eric and Vince square off for a girl, we see Vince bare his teeth and Eric show that he\\\'s not afraid of Vince. We also see Eric accept more of the Hollywood lifestyle by purchasing a $2,000 suit instead of \\\"going to Men\\\'s Warehouse.\\\" Vince shows his emotional side, making him take on the role of the more \\\"grown up\\\" of the group (who is usually Eric) for a short time. Drama and Turtle prove to be hilarious as usual, as well as Ari providing some nerotic humor at his daughter\\\'s Bar Mitzvah.

    James Cameron pops in, proving that he may be a good director, but not a good actor. Whatever the case, Cameron\\\'s lines for the show portray him as a down-to-business, no-hold-barred typical type of Hollywood superstar. He provides some great moments that put the show in perspective of where the group *really* is. (We\\\'ve never seen Vince \\\"work\\\" to this extent).moreless

      Eric: You look pretty good too. You auditioning for "Guys and Dolls"?

    • Ari: (as Terrance walks into the Bat Mitzvah party) Look at Terrance. I guarantee you his relatives worked with Nazis.

    • Ari's Wife: Ari, you're a partner now. You don't have to be afraid of him anymore.
      Ari: I'm afraid of him? I'll beat that old f*ck and throw him in the pool.

      Ari: (to the kids) Only Daddy speaks that way.
      Ari's Wife: Out.

    • Ari: (to a neighbor whose dog is using Ari's lawn as a toilet) Don't even think about not picking that up, Ray, 'cause I'll fucking kill you!

    • Drama: Yeah, E. Don't be such a chaza, huh.

      Eric: Chaza means greedy, Drama, not cheap.

    • Turtle: (to Eric) Well, why don't you wear that suit you wore for your high school graduation? It's still hanging in your closet.

    • Turtle: Three thousand dollar suit just to wiond up some p-ssy, huh, E?
      Drama: Nah, it's a good investment. Mackewich's gotta be worth a hundred million easy. You buying that suit is like buying Microsoft in the '80s. That's if you can get the girl.

    • Drama: Do it yourself sundaes? Oh man!
      Turtle: Sprinkles.

    • Drama: (to Turtle) You eating now would be like jerking off an hour before fucking a supermodel.
      Turtle: If I was fucking a supermodel, I would jerk off. That way I can go all night.

    • James Cameron: Fucking actors, they never know where they're miked. It was weird, on "True Lies," it was Tom Arnold that said he was gonna be governor.
