Finally got to see Pain and Gain.
It's unfortunate how little of it actually resembles the true story it's roughly based on and if I was a person who was actually involved in the real events, I'd probably be pretty angry.
That being said, it is still quite a funny, grotesque, sad, surreal, and ultimately very true movie. It's definitely a savage deconstruction of "The American Dream." I recommend it for those who don't mind a hard-ish R.
Didn't know a thing about it, walked in and blew popcorn out of my nose laughing so hard.
I've known genius' like them and it was scripted perfectly. Reminded me of Pulp Fiction.
Saw it on the first day out and was roaring in the theater; spooky because there was about one or none other laughing so hard.
I am an obnoxious knuckle head, but in most movies I sit quietly. Those two made me roar! Glad to see your post.
