Your first mistake was not reraising preflop. I'd reraise to 120-130.

The flop play here is tricky because so many damn people are on the flop. I might let this one go because pre-flop was messed up bad.

Just read the hand again and if you want to play, you better make a 2/3 or pot sized bet when you're first to act. Why did you check? Why risk giving a free card?
