    An almost comically vacuous exercise.
  2. Where the travails, conquests and bad behavior in "Entourage" come off as dramatic, clever and imaginative, "Sons of Hollywood" is just like any other celebreality show: More boorish behavior by rich people.
  3. 0
    Once again, reality TV invites us to marvel at the idiocy, futility, and self-destructive tendencies of the rich and famous. But this petty, home-movie-level material wouldn't even fly on YouTube.

    Something like Entourage without the manic, kick-start fury of Ari Gold. [2 Apr 2007, p.37]
  5. Here is the equation: privilege + TV cameras x 2 = unwatchability.
  6. 0
    Yes, if you want to hear these bucketheads argue over who engages in this or that degrading sex act, then by all means watch "Sons of Hollywood." For me, however, watching this show was the equivalent of having my faced shoved into a toilet.
  7. "Sons of Hollywood" is the answer to a question nobody was wondering: What if you did "Entourage" with actual Hollywood layabouts, without the writing and the acting and, you know, all that other work stuff?
  8. Those who don’t like a rogue's progress, preferring to cluck from a distance over the skeevy habits of today’s rich bachelors, should skip "Sons of Hollywood."

    Randy Spelling has his own reality show? Randy Spelling? Seriously? It was almost so bad that it was good. Almost. Do TV execs really think Randy Spelling has his own reality show? Randy Spelling? Seriously? It was almost so bad that it was good. Almost. Do TV execs really think the American public wants to see a bunch of guys with no viable talent and abrasive, annoying personalities living the highlife and screwing hot chicks courtesy of their wealthy and famous fathers. How can you not resent these pathethic losers. Hey Randy, what's up with the capri pants dude? And Sean, make sure you take your anti-being-a-psycho-douchebag-medication. The only thing more pathetic than this show is me for taking time to write about it on the internet. I need help. Full Review »

    Spoiled, unfunny, rich kids who think they are funny. Don't bother.

    I propose they change the show's title to Hollywood Douchebags. These guys are indistinguishable from frat assholes. Also, do they date I propose they change the show's title to Hollywood Douchebags. These guys are indistinguishable from frat assholes. Also, do they date women whose vocal cords have been removed? None of them are capable of speech. Totally lame, "bro". Full Review »
