Pain & Gain

By DAVID WEINER

August 27, 2013

Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson flex their acting muscles for this outrageous crime caper based on a true story and directed by Michael Bay. The story follows a trio of Miami bodybuilders (Wahlberg, Johnson and Anthony Mackie) looking to move up in the world, so they hatch a plan to kidnap a local crime boss (played by Tony Shalhoub) and extort him for his money. Of course, once they get to live large, that's where the real pain begins. The expert supporting cast features Ken Jeong as the motivational speaker that inspires Wahlberg, Ed Harris as the private investigator who helps Shalhoub get his money back, Rebel Wilson as a medical technician with a taste for Mackie, and Rob Corddry as a gym owner and partner in crime.
