30 Minutes or Less

Rated R (MPAA) 83 min. 2011

Pizza delivery boy Jesse Eisenberg gets conned into a convoluted get-rich-quick scheme; the brainchild of Danny McBride and Nick Swardson to finance their tanning salon/prostitute ring. Trapped in a bomb-vest with a 10-hour expiration choice, Eisenberg's character has to rob a hundred grand from a bank to pay off a hit man or explode. As if the ridiculous plot isn’t enough, Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) overloads 30 Minutes or Less with explosions, car chases and layers of homophobic, sexist and racist jokes---why give Eisenberg a “brown” best friend (Parks and Recreation’s Aziz Ansari) and his hot sister (Dilshad Vadsaria) if you can’t exploit them with references to Slumdog Millionaire and the like? Eisenberg---doing his best to play dumb alongside a cast of shmucks---and Aziz have a handful of funny moments, but even these are kind of meh. –Molly Segal
