I really wish the producers of Entourge would stop tyring to make Johnny Drama look like a deeper character than he really is. In last night's episode, Johnny makes friends with the mayor of Beverly Hills in an attempt to get his house annexed into the 90210 zip code. Over in Hollywood, E has to tell big-shot movie producer Harvey Weinstein that he will not, in fact, be selling Medellin to him. Instead, the boys are taking the film to Cannes to sell if to the highest bidder. And Vince? Vince does what he always does. A whole lotta smiling and not much else. But I do like to look at him. Here's what went down with the boys:
Ari drives to a cemetary to pick up a script from a highly eccentric, yet wholly lucrative writer. The guy tells Ari he wants him to read the 200-plus page script by the next morning and that he will quiz him on it. Too bad Ari forgets that he's supposed to have dinner with his wife to celebrate her best friend's engagement. Ari whines about going and tells her it's the woman's third marriage and that they'll probably have another go at the engagement dinner.
Ari's wife is furious. And gets even more pissed off when Ari asks for the bill before the entrees are even served. She cracks me up. She's such a good complement to Ari, and I love that she doesn't put up with his bullsh*t.
When the couple is on their way home from dinner, Ari asks his wife to start reading him the script in the car. Unfortunately, his briefcase is no where to be found. Ari flips out and pulls the car over. He opens the trunk and finds a huge bag of sex toys -- at which point they realize the valet has given them the wrong car. Back at the restaurant, the valet tells Ari that someone in his exact same car has just left but tells him to check the GPS to find out where the person lives.
Ari drops off his wife at home and speeds to retrieve the correct car -- getting pulled over for going to fast, of course. As he's trying to explain the story to woman at the door, her husband shows up in Ari's car. Ari leaves as the woman is demanding to know why her husband was in L.A. Oops!
E is having problems of his own trying to tell Harvey that they're not selling him the movie script. Harvey, it seems, has quite the temper and, E, quite frankly gets scared. He winds up taking Harvey to the same club where Vince, the boys and mayor are partying.
In order to get his house annexed, Drama has to find the mayor a hot chick to hook up with. He finds him a gorgeous girl named Anika. There's only one catch: The bouncer tells Vince that Anika is actually a transvetite. Drama figures the best thing to do is to tell the mayor, who is clearly smitten already, the truth. The mayor decides he doesn't care about what's under Anika's skirt and asks the guys to use some discretion.
Vince tells E that he'll hep him tell Harvey about the script, but when Harvey practically has a heart attack about being given the wrong drink, Vince bolts. Harvey's altercation with the waiter worsens and he has to be physically removed by two large bouncers. While the bouncers have him, Drama shouts out what E has been trying to tell Harvey all night -- that he'll have to bid on the film like everybody else.
The next morning, Ari heads in for his meeting with the eccentric writer. Exhausted, Ari is still wearing his suit from the night before and can barely keep his eyes open. He tells the writer to quiz him, and the guy asks him what he thought of the third act. As Ari starts to rave about it, the writer tells him that he hated it and re-wrote it. He tells Ari to read his new version on the spot. $20 says Ari falls asleep while reading it...
Even though the guys didn't tell anyone the truth about the mayor's one-night stand, the next day it's all over the internet. The papparazzi got a clear shot of Anika's manly-bits as she was getting into his car. How very Britney of him, er, her.
I'm just guessing here, but I don't think Drama's annexation is going to happen.
What did you think of last night's episode? Do you think the guys were right to tell the mayor about what he was getting himself into?
