The worst movie I have seen in ten years, or more! No redeeming qualities, whatsoever.

An American style \"Snatch\" and \"Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels\" that did not work. Micheal Bay please stick to your fast paced blow everything up kind of movies, they somehow kinda work for you and stay away from Guy Ritchie style of movies, those do not work. This movie could have worked.

Imagine if Bad Boys were really the Bad Boys..then you get Pain and Gain...I definitely loved this movie. It had me laughing all the way through and the cast of characters was brilliant!

A fantastic show. The roles in this show are new ground for all the actors. It has a dark humor that is well written and funny. Dont expect the Rock or you will disappoint yourself the same way the critics have themselves. Johnson does a great job with this character, its funny and dark at the same time. Never a dull moment. Dont let anyone talk you out of going to this show! Its actually one of

Yep, it's all fun and games until someone gets brutalized repeatedly. Before you can avert your eyes, it's Katie, bar the door and break out the chain saws. Full Review

Michael Bay's absurdist comedy is all pain, no gain and an utter monstrosity. It may be the most unpleasant movie I've ever seen, and I'm not forgetting "Freaks," which Pain & Gain resembles, come to think of it. Full Review

Wahlberg and Johnson are the saving graces of an in-your-face movie. Full Review
