Pain and Gain
From acclaimed director Michael Bay comes “Pain and Gain,” a new action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. Based on the unbelievable true story of a group of personal trainers in 1990’s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.
I have rarely been as offended by the content of a film as I was with this one. The title should be “All Pain and No Gain” because that’s what I felt 15 minutes into the film when I walked out of the theater. The beginning of this movie contained more sex, language and drug use than most of the R-rated films I have ever seen. How the MPAA didn’t rate this as an “NC-17” film may remain a mystery but frankly it ultimately doesn’t matter. The items listed in our content description is what I saw in the first 15 minutes. Needless to say, this is not a family film.
