    Pain & Gain

    Pain & Gain (2013)

    The hunt for the American Dream is chronicled in this film that according to this website is in the "Action & Adventure" genre, which director Michael Bay is best known for, but it works best as a black comedy that is inexplicably based off of a true story. Also to it's credit, there were brief moments of humanity there, mostly found in the character of Daniel Lugo, who was so desperate to be something better than what he was. For someone who appreciates a little comedy produced through violence juxtaposed with odd or unconventional situations, my money says you could do worse.
