Pain & Gain Movie Quotes

"Pain & Gain" movie quotes provide the humorous dialogue in the action-comedy movie about a group of bodybuilders who attempt extortion. Based on the real life story chronicled in the Miami New Times and a book of the same name by Pete Collins, the film was adapted into a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Directed by Michael Bay, "Pain & Gain" opened in United States theaters on April 26, 2013.

In "Pain & Gain," Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) is a hardworking and determined bodybuilder at the Sun Gym in Florida. He is unsatisfied with his life and aspires to be richer and more successful but is discouraged by watching others, many who cheat to get where they are, passing him by. However when one of his training clients, Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub), reveals that he has extensive wealth, Daniel gets an idea on how to steal it.

Daniel enlists Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie), a friend from the gym who is also dealing with the side effects of steroid use, and Paul Doyle (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), a new member of the gym who was recently released from prison, to help with his plan. They plan to kidnap Victor, extort his money then everyone can go on with their normal lives. It sounds great on paper but when it comes to execution, the trio prove their lack of crime experience and several things go wrong. It gets even worse when Detective Ed Du Bois (Ed Harris) is tasked with finding out who was responsible for the abomination of the extortion putting Daniel, Paul and Adrian's freedom at jeopardy. Rebel Wilson, Rob Corddry and Ken Jeong co-star in the film.

"Pain & Gain" joins a movie season already full of other great films such as "The Big Wedding," "Oblivion," "Scary Movie 5," "Evil Dead," "Jurassic Park 3D," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," "Olympus Has Fallen," "Admission," "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," "Emperor," "Dead Man Down," "Oz: The Great and Powerful," "Stoker," "A Good Day to Die Hard," "Side Effects," and "Identity Thief."
