    Synopsis


    30 Minutes or Less
    Small-town pizza delivery driver Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) stumbles into an elaborate crime scheme when he's abducted by a pair of ambitious criminals (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson) who coerce him into robbing a bank on a strict timeline. Desperate, Nick implores his former best friend Chet (Aziz Ansari) to help him out of the predicament. But with each attempt to thwart the would-be criminal geniuses, Nick and Chet find their dire situation spinning faster out of control. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Someone straps a bomb to your chest and tells you that if you don’t rob a back and return with at least $100,000, they will detonate the bomb and kill you. What do you do? That question is put to Jessie Eisenberg in this film as he portrays a pizza delivery man who is certainly unhappy but far too much of a slacker to make any serious effort to change his circumstances. Nick (Eisenberg) runs to his closest friend for help. Of course they have just had a falling out and Chet, a teacher, (played by stand-up comedian Aziz Ansari) is very surprised to see him. Even more so when he sees the explosive device and realizes his friend just brought a bomb to a school full of innocent children. Soon Chet agrees to help and the robbery becomes inevitable. There has been a small degree of criticism for making a comedy film about circumstances which are eerily similar to those of another pizza delivery man in Pennsylvania. Of course, the man in that case was not an unwitting accomplice but was in fact in league with the robbers and simply believed the bomb was not real. Oddly enough, an episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent bares an even more similar storyline and predates the Pennsylvania case and an episode of Bones that also contains a plot with many similar elements came and went with no such outrage. That said, the film is a comedy and achieves it’s objectives with relative ease. Eisenberg is seen here with his usual mannerisms but without the intelligence he’s previously displayed in films such as The Social Network and Adventureland. Aziz Ansari is passable as the best friend and the would-be killers, played by comedian/actors Danny McBride and Nick Swardson are funny, though not particularly frightening without explosives. All in all, it’s a solid comedy, a good time, and not much else.

      If you're a fan of Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson, and Aziz Ansari you are in luck. Loosely based on true events, 30 Minutes or Less is a fast paced, fun action/comedy. An underachieving, but excellent driving, pizza delivery boy (Eisenberg) is kidnapped, strapped with a bomb, and forced to rob a bank by an even more underachieving, freeloading son of a lottery winner and his lackey friend. With the help of his best friend (Ansari), the pizza boy is in for the delivery of his life. The movie is fast paced, funny, and never overstays its welcome. The blu-ray presentation is top notch as well with a pristine 1080p transfer and a wonderful DTS-MA soundtrack. Highly recommended.

      A wonderful film. The thought of two dimwits needing to raise $100,000 dollars to hire a hitman to kill one's father in order to inherit a Million is different. But, they have no jobs and no skills so they decide to kidnap some stranger and get him to rob a bank for them. Hilarity ensues. Jesse Eisenberg plays the protagonist quite well. But there is one minor flaw: with him playing such a whiny, poor me character you almost start waiting for the real bad guys to blow up his bomb vest. Almost. But I wont go any farther or I'll be throwing out too many spoilers. Does he succeed in robbing a bank? Does he survive the film? Does he die a virgin? You'll have to watch the movie to find out.

      I liked this movie, even in spite of all it's structural flaws (And there were many). The reason? Quite simply it's the cast. the way they bounce off one another, the way the dialogue is delivered, the sheer chemistry between the teams of Ansari/Eisenburg and McBride/Swardson, is fantastic and very enjoyable. The plot may be forgettable, but that just makes the cast stand out even more by comparison.

      This movie is fun to watch on a day you don't want to think too much. Just like other movies of this kind, a bunch of random stuff happens to a group of people. It's no Citizen Kane, but it wasn't set up to be that kind of movie.

      A really pretty funny movie, especially if you like Aziz Ansari, Nick Swardson and Danny McBride. If you don't, you probably take yourself too seriously and won't like it. Kick back and enjoy a crazy flick.

      I only bought this because it was buy one get one free. Not really a funny movie. With the case I think it had more potential. It will now just sit and collect dust
