However, post interval, Entertainment falls to another level of awful. At one point, a dog latches onto Sonu Sood’s crotch. It’s so unfunny that I got depressed.

One day, Prithvi can’t believe his eyes when he sees the ATM machine showing the balance in his bank account as more than Rs. 100 crore. He doesn’t know who has deposited Rs. 100 crore in his account but soon gets a telephone call from a person who identifies himself as Dawood. The caller asks Prithvi to do as instructed – that is, deliver some crores to people and destinations he (Dawood) would tell him. For his services, the caller promises Prithvi handsome commission.
Komal Nahta, Komals Reviews
A good question that is. This movie doesn’t require a lot of thought process. You can leave your brain at home and enjoy a mindless comedy with the standard lines. If you are fond of canines, then watch the dog try to do his thing. He is definitely one well-groomed pooch. They even did his nails. I wonder if they took him in for teeth whitening. The dog is the one bright spark in the movie, and even that dims from time to time. On the whole, a family entertainer with terrible music. A decent attempt but it fails to make the grade. Watch the movie with your little ones (the human kind, don’t know if they allow dogs in the theatre).

A consistently spoofy perky tongue keeping the audience cheeks spread in glee. ‘Entertainment’ is not a great shaker as a Bollywood movie on dogs or pet animals, but writers turned directors Farhad and Sajid LOL one liners slaps it’s broad and obvious clichés to make the movie permanently stick only to one thing ‘Entertainment’ with glues of unabashed, slapstick, street smart, tongue and cheek humor, making it irresistible to kids, pet lovers, families and those adults who prefer being kid by heart and mind whenever they watch a film. Tips and Pen have a winner here.

Overall, the film is just about a one time watch.
