Pain & Gain

Based on a somewhat unbelievable true series of events, Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne “It’s Okay to Call Me The Rock Again” Johnson, and Anthony Mackie star as a trio of bodybuilders who decide to kidnap and rob a local businessman (Tony Shalhoub). Played to the hilt, the insane over-the-top Pain & Gain embraces the ridiculousness of the situation to deliver some truly funny sequences. Sadly, it delivers almost as many groan worthy moments and some disturbing violence that doesn’t always mesh well with the zany tone of the movie. The true story the film is based on is so unbelievable director Michael Bay even stops the film at times to remind the audience that (some form of) these events really occurred.

Longtime ‘buddha/dpb pal (and our favorite birthday boy) Nick Mundy from Team Tiger Awesome was tapped by ScreenJunkies to do the job he was born for: Interview The Rock* in Miami as part of the Pain & Gain press junket. AND IT IS HILARIOUS.

Considering this would be like asking me to towel off Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Hugh Jackman after a swim lesson, I have to say lifelong super-fan Nick held up well. I’ve seen folks scooped out of the interview chair for less.

*I’ll call him ‘Dwayne Johnson’ when he stops being THE FUCKING ROCK.

Ten years ago now, an unassuming car genre movie became a surprise hit. But even then, when The Fast and the Furious made an unseen $144 million dollars, no one could have expected it to spawn a fourth sequel, with a fifth already being written before its predecessor hit theaters. But a lot has changed since then – what started as a film about underground racing has turned into an international action franchise that, in some countries, is outgrossing the traditional Summer-Opening Blockbuster.

But the Fast and, normally, Furious franchise doesn’t need to be as relatively subtle as its beginnings would suggest. Just the opposite, they define the summer movie of a bygone era, where you don’t have to play with genre or superpowers – all you need is beautiful people doing cool shit.
