Director Michael Bay would have to work really hard to screw up this new comedy/action flick. Mix two fitness addicts played by Mark Walhberg and Dwayne Johnson, and add in Monk’s Tony Shalhoub, and this looks like it could be a very funny movie.
Both Wahlberg and Johnson are at their best when they make fun of themselves. And we haven’t seen Shalhoub since Monk went off the air. Shalhoub is a versatile actor, so he should do nicely as a kidnapped villain.
Kidnappers in superhero costumes? Anthony Mackie carrying a red brindle greyhound?
Based on “magazine articles by Pete Collins.” This is the craziest, funniest preview we’ve seen in ages. Check out the first trailer for Pain & Gain:
Pain & Gain is scheduled for release in theaters on April 26, 2013.
