Product Description

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 volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. With mere 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.


Rambunctious and unpredictable, action-comedy 30 Minutes or Less manages to be simultaneously cynical and softhearted, which is quite a trick. A disgruntled pizza delivery guy named Nick (The Social Network's Jesse Eisenberg) gets his life hijacked by two dimwitted yet canny thugs (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson), who need $100,000 to hire a hit man--so they strap a bomb to Nick and order him to rob a bank. So many little twists and turns follow that it would ruin the fun to describe the plot any further; suffice it to say that 30 Minutes or Less takes a high-concept idea and grounds it in well-written characters, an outstanding cast, and some brutally funny bits. But what really makes 30 Minutes or Less so sympathetic is not the buddy relationship between Nick and his best friend Chet (Aziz Ansari from Parks and Recreation), though that's thoroughly enjoyable--it's the buddy relationship between the two would-be hoodlums that holds the movie's heart. McBride has stolen scenes in dozens of comedies now; his ability to be a complete, unrepentant lummox and yet shimmer with charisma is unmatched. Swardson (from Reno 911!) miraculously matches McBride's comic chutzpah. They are ridiculous and surly buffoons, and they are a delight. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
30 Minutes or Less is the titular promise of the pizza place that average-achiever Nick (Eisenberg - The Social Network) works for. When Dwayne & Travis (McBride & Swardson - Eastbound and Down & Happy Madison films) decide to hire someone to kill Dwayne's overbearing father who is frittering away his lottery winnings and as Dwayne sees it - his inheritance. Needing to raise cash for the venture, they decide to force someone to rob a bank for them - by strapping a bomb to the victim and threatening to blow it up unless they comply.

Nick is left with little choice other than to go through with the plan, assisted by his long-time best friend Chet (Aziz Ansari - Observe And Report) who despite his initial reluctance, gets fully into the act. Will the guys manage to raise & deliver the cash before Dwayne & Travis' ineptitude blows the bomb?

Well, anyone would have thought this theme might have been a little insensitive as very similar events to these actually happened to a pizza-guy - but controversy aside - this is director Ruben Fleischer & Jesse Eisenberg's second outing together; the first being the hugely successful Zombieland.

Format: DVD
Jesse Eisenberg plays a savvy pizza delivery boy whose driving ability makes the "Fast and Furious" crowd look like pregnant snails dragging a brick. His roommate is Aziz Ansari, who recently got a job as a full time teacher...with a laser pointer.

The subplot involves Dwayne (Danny McBride) and Travis (Nick Swardson) adult versions of Beavis and Butthead who lack jobs, perhaps the real stars of this film.

Eisenberg is involved in an early conversation about "Facebook" something he claims he doesn't do anymore, a reference to a previous film.

The plot starts out complex and inane. Dwayne's dad (Fred Ward) has money which Dwayne believes he will inherit. A stripper(Bianca Kajlich) knows a hit man and suggests to him during a lap dance that he bump off his dad. The rub is that the hit man needs $100,000 first. So the duo decide to get the cash from a bank robbery which they will make someone else perform...such as our pizza boy. And of course nothing goes as planned as everything takes multiple comical twists.

The movie had numerous LOL funny lines...."Just like the Marines. If you screw up, we leave your ... behind!" The stupidity of the bad guys is what makes this film funny. Eisenberg's character was a bit lame and needed some comic help.

Solid 4 1/2 STARS.

F-bomb, crude humor, adult situations, nudity (Bianca Kajlich).

The Frat Boy R rated comedies that have been coming out of America in the past 10 years or so have produced more duds than a faulty munitions factory. However, while a lot of them may be crass, brash and bad to know; a few hold up. ’30 Minutes or Less’ is no classic of modern comedic cinema, but it is a worthy watch with likable characters and some funny moments. Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a talented 20 something wasting his life away as a pizza delivery boy. He gets the boost he needs when he is held captive by two bozos, Dwayne (Danny McBride) and Travis (Nick Swardson). They release Nick with a bomb strapped to his chest, all he needs to do to remove the bomb is rob a bank.

The premise for ‘30’ is a simple one, but well played; especially by the no good Dwayne and Travis. McBride is an acquired taste, but when he plays to his stereotype like Dwayne he is very good – a horrible person, but that is what you want from a comedic bad guy. Plaudits should also go to Swardson as the rather foolish Travis, here he breaks out from under the wing of Adam Sandler and is much better for it. As well as some good performances there is a solid script with some amusing set pieces; the bickering between the various friendship groups is very funny and feels quite realistic.

In a world in which many comedies have no actual moments of humour, ‘30’ is a breath of fresh air. It is a little basic and crass at times, but at a breezy 83 minutes running time it does not outstay its welcome and is a fun comedy film when had with a few beers.

As with many comedy films, high definition is not really needed to enjoy the film. There are actually plenty of extras on the DVD of the film with commentary from cast and crew and some featurettes about the making of.

Before buying this movie I read several reviews to help me decide wether or not to buy it and after I bought and watched it, I read the same reviews again. I can see why some people have marked it higher than the two stars I gave it and I can see why people gave it less. The problem is, I was expecting a laugh-out-loud comedy and I was left totally disappointed .
On the plus side , the acting is very good throughout the movie and even the minor characters are believable, the pacing is good and the interaction between the actors is realistic and mildly amusing, but mildly amusing isn't 'laugh out loud funny'. The problem with the movie is the script , which simply isnt funny.
By definition, the essential part of any comedy should be the humor , either by a humorous situation in which the characters find them selves or the comic timing and delivery of the dialog by the actors - unfortunately this movie has none of these.
Like a lot of people, I only tend to leave reviews if I'm blown away by the quality of a movie or totally disappointed, this is the latter. Whilst I wouldn't discourage anyone from watching it, I would definitely discourage anyone from buying it. Download it, borrow it -DONT waste your money on it. I very much doubt you will ever watch it more than once.
