Pain & Gain

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.

Shalhoub

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.

Kidnapper

Kidnappers in superhero costumes?  Anthony Mackie carrying a red brindle greyhound?

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.
