I like Duane Johnson and Mark Walberg but this wasn't a good movie. It was stupid and boring and the second half of the movie just seemed to drag on forever.

Sleazy, not funny and just plain stupid.

As I sat watching this movie for the first 45 minutes or so I was thinking; "What a stinker this is!" Then they reminded me on screen that "This is still a true story." After that the movie became hilarious to me. It was just not possible for these guys to be so dang dumb! But apparently it is and they were. Toward the end I was laughing out loud at these idiots. Not a great movie, but it becomes really entertaining. I recommend it for some good sincere laughter at the expense of others.

For good actors to need to work in a movie that relies on sex toys and other dumb stuff for a movie that is not xxx rated is a shame. I have always admired the works of Mark Wall Berg and Dewayne Johnson. This film is a travesty for them. Are they required to make x number of bad movies to make one good movie. Come on guys, your better than this.
I hope no one took their kids to this. I saw several other couples walk out on this one even before my wife and I.

Pain & Gain was very comical at times. Mark Whalberg played a great role as a muscle head trainer who wanted to just be a doer. Anthony Macke had some funny moments in the movie but it was Dwayne Johnson who stole the show.
