Michael Bay's "Pain and Gain" is a Hit at the Box Office

Posted: April 28th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael BaySubmit Comment
Michael Bay's "Pain and Gain" movie, starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, took first place at the domestic box office this weekend by grossing $20 million. The film cost only $26 million to make, which means it's already on track to become a hit. It has a disappointing 47% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

The other wide release of the weekend was "The Big Wedding" that has an all-star cast of Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, Ben Barnes, Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams.

Despite such an impressive cast, the film cost only $35 million. Unfortunately, it was only able to earn $7.5 million, making it difficult to become profitable domestically. "The Big Wedding" also has an incredibly low 6% fresh rating.

On the specialty side, Matthew McConaughey's "Mud" landed in 11th place at the box office despite being released in only 363 theaters. It grossed $2.2 million and has an impressive 98% fresh rating.

...because Michael Bay movies often bomb, no pun intended.

This was the first one to bomb AND get a horrible rep with critics.
What a miracle.

Saw it today, it wasn't bad. Didn't really glorify the real *ssholes. Nice new obvious avatar btw mink.

Thanks. And good it didn't "glorify the *ssholes", but unless it makes them look like the monsters the real criminals are, Bay's still an amoral sc*mbag imo.
