AO Scott reviews Pain & Gain

I love it when certain highbrow reviewers stoop to admit they like some well-made trash. This line made me genuinely laugh out loud:

“The movie and, by implication, those of us watching it are no better than these guys. I found that unspeakably insulting and also impressive.”

Here’s a link to the full review at the New York Times. 

Now I kinda want to see this movie. Don’t know that I’ve ever said that about something by Michael Bay.
