PAIN & GAIN comedy action Mark Wahlberg Fri July 5 @8 FREE! Plus AFTER PARTY!
“unbelievable true story”
FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES! We have had several requests for a film on Friday so here it is!

From acclaimed director Michael Bay comes "Pain and Gain," a new action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. Based on the unbelievable true story of a group of personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong

“Now [Bay] hits new levels of both artistry and sleaziness in the black comedy Pain & Gain, which I strongly recommend if you don't overvalue taste, subtlety, and moral decency. I liked it.”
Richard Corliss

Top Critic Top Critic
“It's like a giant sculpture that is so strange and off-putting, it's instantly, intriguingly post-modern. Swept up in the film's pile-driving self-assurance, even Bay-haters may absorb the pain to enjoy the gain.”
Kirk Baird
LA Times

“There's undeniable humor in this comedy of errors of three bumbling criminals, and Wahlberg, Johnson, and Mackie strike the right tone in their performances.|”


John Hanlon
Hollywood reporter
An outrageously entertaining and wickedly hilarious movie that's big, fun, stylish, original and wonderfully unpredictable. An absurdly twisted, fast, furious and insanely enjoyable action-comedy. A total blast of non-stop fun from start to finish. A true story that brings comedy out of tragedy and dose not have you laughing with the characters but at them for their foolishness, stupidity and antics that eventually led them to their tragic but deserved finish. Ed Harris character, Ed Du Bois describes them perfectly when he says " The only thing they weren't charged for and really should of, is being dumb F#@%$*& idiots". It's probably one of 2013's best movies. Director, Michael Bay crafts his best movie ever. An instant classic. It's two hours of ridiculously explosive laughs, dark edge and sharp fun. It's loaded with terrific energy and style that gets you pumped. A muscular, well-character drawn and intense movie that has a lot more than you would expect it to have. The cast is absolutely brilliant. Johnson, Mackie and Wahlberg are hilarious and truly terrific together. Mark Wahlberg is excellent. Dwayne Johnson is fantastic, he shows great dedication to his role with a great amount of muscle mass to his physique and gives great energy to the comedy and is great to watch. Ed Harris is terrific. Rob Corddry is hilarious as usual. Tony Shalhoub is marvelous. A hard-boiled mix of a buddy-comedy and a heist film that make for a truly exhilarating and exciting mixture. An adrenaline-pumping good-time. It's a hard-boiled and pumped-up knockout.
