Pain & Gain

Pain & Gain ★★★½

"We all start out equal: little blobs of blood and muscle. It's a setup of awesome potential."

obnoxiously, in-your-face macho; often stupid, only sometimes on purpose; and full of posturing, pathetic losers barely papering over their obvious insecurities. i.e. an ideal setup for an unsubtle but entertaining movie about the American Dream, right down to obsession with status, latent homophobia, clinging to religion, and the supreme power of self-belief. gets a little repetitive but it doesn't stop it from being entertaining.
