PAIN & GAIN Blu-ray and DVD Release Date

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Called “outrageously entertaining” (Marlow Stern, Newsweek), “hilarious, smart, clever and fresh” (Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly) and “the guy flick of 2013” (Stephen Rebello, Playboy), director Michael Bay’s hilarious dark comedy PAIN & GAIN gets pumped on Blu-ray combo pack, DVD and On Demand August 27, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. And only for the real Doers, the film will be available on Digital two weeks early on August 13th. Based on an unbelievable true story, PAIN & GAIN stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie as a group of personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong. Hailed by critics as “a new American classic” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV), this pitch dark comedy is “unhinged, frenetic, darkly funny” (Alynda Wheat, People) and “like Pulp Fiction—without the fiction!” (Mark S. Allen, KMAX-TV). Adapted for the screen by writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely from articles written by journalist Pete Collins, PAIN & GAIN also stars Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”), Ed Harris (A History of Violence), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids), Ken Jeong (The Hangover) and Bar Paly (The Ruins).

PAIN & GAIN Film Review

Friday, April 26th, 2013




Famed Director Michael Bay (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, 2009) is at it once again with this semi-comedic drama accurately portraying Miami (in the 90’s) as a steroid-drenched house of mirrors, reflecting back the worst of us in various colorful characters. This includes Mark Wahlberg (Daniel Lugo) playing the kind of good-natured idiot who thinks he’s better than everyone, and is unflappable as he leads this impossible scheme, that only could be the brainchild of a drug-induced set of thought processes. Literally, this flick is all about watching a group of sociopath dummies screw up terrible plans and further ruining an already tarnished community’s reputation. 

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Paul Doyle) completes the trio of knuckle-heads and is probably the most convincing of the group, as a total screw-up. I really enjoyed watching him play the muscle-bound dim-wit, that can’t seem to think straight due to excessive use of steroids and other drugs. This is a far throw from his normal role of being the sharp-witted super-hero type character that saves the world and his image at the same time. Equally, it is fascinating to see that this flick casts Tony Shaloub (Monk – TV series) playing the role of Victor Kershaw as one of the biggest pieces of garbage in the film. He’s gross from the moment we meet him, bragging about his money, rubbing his life in Daniel’s face every chance he gets and setting a tone that almost makes the viewer want to wish him harm. Anthony Mackie’s (The Hurt Locker, 2009) character feeds well off of Wahlberg’s energy, and I hope the two end up playing in another comedy together soon. Certainly not to be overlooked is the veteran actor, Ed Harris (Man on the Ledge, 2012). His role is perfect as the retired South Florida detective being relentless and busting the case wide open, even when the active-duty police department seemed to have dropped the ball on the case. Bay really tops the cast off with bringing comedians Rob Corddry and Rebel Wilson in to the fold and really added the off the wall comedic flavor to the film. READ FULL PAIN & GAIN FILM REVIEW >>
