CATEGORIES Movie NewsMichael Bay's "Pain and Gain," as we noted in our review, is totally nuts. It's about as extreme as that kind of movie can be -- full of violent shenanigans and 'roided-out bodybuilders. But the craziest thing to happen on the set of "Pain and Gain," according to Bay, didn't involve explosions or Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's giant biceps. It involved, um, personal pleasure devices.
In an interview about the movie, Bay explained that some of the sex toys, meant as set decoration (since the criminals, led by Mark Wahlberg, hide out in a warehouse formerly used for the distribution of sex toys), mysteriously went missing. "We bought $75,000 worth of sex toys to stock the sex-toy warehouse. I could have filmed the crew coming in that day because they'd stop and see these things -- anatomically correct vajayjays and this butt (everyone would touch the butt because it felt real) -- and it was hysterical. We were going to return all the sex toys to get three-quarters of our money back, but they started disappearing. We were like, 'Who is taking the sex toys?'"
While it's fun to picture Michael Bay dressed like Sherlock Holmes, trying to figure out which member of the cast and crew was walking away with the sex toys, that probably didn't happen. What's kind of amazing, though, is that these sex toys weren't very, um, subtle. But hey, who are we to judge?
