THE RIDE AIN’T OVER.
Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), now a studio boss, agrees to let Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) direct his first movie, but when the project needs more money the Texas financiers start making awkward demands… This big-screen adaptation of the 2004-2011 TV series will satisfy die-hard fans, but not many others. Nothing much has seriously happened in the lives of these hopelessly childish characters. Their shallow Hollywood issues are fun to follow for a while – a whole movie is asking a lot, though. Grenier is still not very convincing as Tinseltown’s biggest star, but some of the cameos are amusing.
