Pain & Gain (2013) Rated R

Pain & gainThree bodybuilders get involved with a kidnapping and extortion gone bad. Based on a true story. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub, Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson, Ken Jeong

The only thing true about this film is that it’s based on the true story of Marc Schiller. They took that story and then expanded on the reality of what happened. I think to make it funnier. This film didn’t need to be a comedy. I think just the reality of what happened to Marc Schiller would have been enough to make this film great but of course money counts. I think if you left in the bumbling idiots of the kidnappers would have been funny. Although, then people would probably not believe that it really happened, just like the police did in the film. It’s just a poor representative of a true story and it’s not funny. It’s a miss.
