Is 'Entourage' Creator Doug Ellin Right About Anything?
An excerpt from the LA Times article, “'Entourage' bros and their high jinks might not be so welcome anymore,” by Amy Kaufman:
“At that stage,” [Kevin] Dillon said, “we were thinking, 'Hey, if [Sex and the City] can do this well, why wouldn't we be able to?'”
“If we did half as well,” [Kevin] Connolly said, “we'd be...”
“Yeah, I would love to stop talking about 'Sex and the City,' ” [Doug] Ellin interjected. “It's one of the most successful movies of all time. I think it's the No. 3 R-rated comedy of all time.”
“Really?” [Jerry] Ferrara asked. “I just got scared.”
Overall, “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin comes off a bit douche-y here, calling critics of the film “little, bitter guys sitting on their Twitter accounts,” and saying the “Entourage” dynamic appeals to real guys he knows. Like LeBron James.
He's also wrong on the above. “Sex and the City” isn't the third highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. It's 11th. Unadjusted.
