Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
Synopsis: Being big and tough ought to have its advantages, and Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) is about to cash in on them. Teaming up with a couple of his bodybuilding buddies (Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie) he hatches a kidnapping plot that with only a little pain should bring great gain.
The screen-writers of the movie have taken a comical approach to presenting this true story. Read more about Parent Previews’ opinion about this creative choice at: Pain & Gain: Why Has Crime Become So Funny?.
