About Pain & Gain
A crazy, violent crime caper based on the true story of some bone-headed Miami criminals. Daniel Lugo (Mark Walhberg) has recently been released from prison and finds work at a gym owned by John Mese (Rob Corddry). He befriends steroid-using body builder Doorbal (Anthony Mackie) and starts to become jealous of the luxury lifestyle enjoyed by the gym's customers. Lugo convinces Doorbal and reformed cocaine addict Paul Doyle (Dwayn Johnson) that they should kidnap the wealthy and unpleasant Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub) and extort money out of him. Although their plans go awry they are eventually successful and split their gains while leaving Kershaw for dead. However their glitzy aspirations and greed mean that they soon feel the need to get more money by unlawful means.
