Pain & Gain
If you can't make it, take it
Oh yeah? You and whose army?
Blow-stuff-up expert Michael Bay goes in a slightly different direction with this film which is sadly based on true events. A trio of bodybuilders are tired of being poor, and so decide to kidnap a wealthy client and force him to hand over his money. However their criminal enterprise goes horribly wrong. Now, living large with their high-maintenance women will take everything they've got.
