This film is something completely different than what you would expect from Michael Bay! At times you have to remind yourself that this is actually based on a true story.
Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson make for an entertaining pair and bring lots of muscle and some good humor to Pain & Gain. If your a fan of either actor then you will definitely get a kick out of this movie.
This was way different than I expected but I enjoyed it. Just be sure to leave the kids at home, there are some parts that will make you a little squeamish!

I was not familiar with the true story that this was based on. I honestly thought it was going to be a simple kidnapping and extortion story - bad guys get caught - justice is served.
Next time - I will be doing a bit more checking before I head out to the cinema. Because - I definitely did not get what I was expecting.
I really don't blame the actors (other than for going along with it). But, a lot of stuff could have been toned down and the writing needed some help.
I really liked the cast - I think they did a pretty decent job considering what they were working with.

This is my first review, but I wanted to be sure that others know what a waste of time this movie was. I went because I usually really enjoy Dwayne Johnson, but he should have thought twice before accepting this role.
I wish I could get a refund. Don't bother!

Amusing first hour, then the reality of true story sets in and three stupid people swole on 'roids do incredibly bad things and spoiler, get caught. Duh. Too long too. Gratuitous scatology.
