In the action-comedy 30 Minutes or Less, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson). The duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. With only a few hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari). As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers, and their own tumultuous relationship.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
For a soul-sucking 83 minutes, you're trapped inside the film's tiny, ugly mind.Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 08.11.2011
30 Minutes wallows in stupidity without making the bromance bonds believable.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 08.11.2011
"30 Minutes or Less" may be tasteless, moronic and lacking in any redeeming social value whatsoever. But for me, at least, it was gut-bustingly funny -- perhaps this waning summer season's ultimate guilty pleasure.Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 08.11.2011
The dark, biting comedy often strays into territory that can be categorized as politically incorrect, but the result is funny, engaging, and at times a little disconcerting.James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 08.12.2011
