That this film has it tongue lodged firmly within its cheek becomes clear in the opening five minutes. We see Mark Wahlberg’s fitness trainer Danny Lugo attempt to outrun a Swat team in the most lethargic slow motion ever before a ‘Six months earlier’ preamble tosses us into a sun-drenched world of muscles and bikinis, where you needn’t have a personality when you can spout self-improvement mantras; and where value
