Michael Bay's Pain & Gain: The Florida Chainsaw Murders With Hot Babes (Video)
The longest series Miami New Times has run during my 14 years here is Pain & Gain, a Pulp Fiction like story about crazy weightlifters who couldn't even get it right when they cut up bodies and dumped them in the Everglades.
I spent the last few weeks tracking down those involved in the story (two are on death row so couldn't speak) and hanging around the set. It;s a fascinating place filled with good looking extras, high powered and occasionally neurotic movie people and, of course, the writer, Pete Collins -- who likes to play naked golf and got fired after urinating on my predecessor's spotless ride.
I've got a column this week about life on the set and the backstory behind the blockbuster. After the jump, check out some video of Pete failing to seduce some hot young extras.
