So funny, great cast, great humor (by emperormack)
This is the funniest movie of the summer! It is great on so many levels. So lets break it down: 1. The cast - Jesse Eisenburg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, and Nick Swardson. This is an all star cast for a comedy film! Eisenburg has really come into his own since The Social Network. Aziz Ansari is great too, he is so funny in this. He warps every scene he's in. Danny McBride and Nick Swardson are pretty much the same. They both play really good douchebags. That's it. 2. The story - Jesse Eisenburg plays Nick, a slacker and pizza delivery boy who doesn't care what he does with his <more>
life. Aziz however is Nick's best friend, Chet and is more responsible. He is a substitute teacher full time and worries about Nick. Danny McBride plays Dwayne who is a retard with no common sense. He hates his father, The Major played by the brilliant Fred Ward and plans to hire someone to murder him so he can inherit the rest of his dad's 10 million dollar lotto win. Along with his best friend Travis, they kidnap Nick, strap a bomb on him and force him to rob a bank so they can pay a hit man to kill the Major. I'm not even gonna talk about Michael Pena's role, I hated it so much. Everything goes down on this one day with Nick righting his wrongs in life and robbing the bank with Chet. 3. Humor - The humor of this film was extremely raunchy, like most films now a days. Lots of sexual references and F-bombs going down. It does get tiring after a while but I give this film a 10 anyway.So this film was great! Screw the critics, they don't understand good comedies today! Form your own opinion on films and don't listen to them. Watch this film!!!
A synonym of what a funny and entertaining film should be, no more and no less than that (by Rodrigo_Amaro)
Incredibly funny but terribly misunderstood, "30 Minutes or Less" really worked for those who didn't expect much from a simple comedy whose only purpose was to entertain, and that purpose is perfectly done. People's cynicism sometimes can be an annoying thing when it comes to say something negative about films like this, really bad things were said about this movie, and that's very undeserving. Might be an exaggeration from my part but this really is one of my favorite films simply because it served well its goal, delivered good laughs and lots of entertainment, no more <more>
than that.In this action-comedy Jesse Eisenberg plays Nick, a pizza delivery guy who has to rob a bank for some guys or a bomb attached to his body will explode. How did that happen? Well, after one of his routine deliveries. But he's not alone with this plan of robbing the bank, he counts with his longtime friend Chet Aziz Ansari , but the two aren't an all so great team since not only they're really messy with everything the do but because of Chet's protection towards his sister, of whom Nick is in love with, which causes them to part ways their fight when Nick reveals he slept with Chet's sister is a hilarious and sexy moment between these two guys. Movies are becoming quite dependable of situations like this but it works . Hands down for the partnership between Eisenberg and Ansari, they were awesome! All their moments together were funny, some really hysterical e.g. the car robbery. "You don't even need to call the cops cause we own the cops!" just like Danny McBride and the other guy, who play the ones who put the bomb on Nick to commit the bank heist. This last team goes for lots of sexual jokes, some very good, other times a little bit distractive and ineffective, not as good as it might be in the script. It could be a longer feature, it could have more challengeable stuff for all the parts involved I think people noticed that, things were way too easy for some of the characters . The title is a little bit misleading since it only reflects Nick's work as a pizza boy but not exactly the time he has to solve his problems. And it was nice to see Jesse and director Ruben Fleischer re-teaming again after their first involvement in "Zombieland"; I sincerely hope for more films with these guys in the future. Call me weird but this was far more enjoyable than "Zombieland" which is a good film, only greater than "30 Minutes..." due to the director's sense of style in adding some news to zombie flicks, a certain originality and a great use of pop culture references ok, there's a few in this one but they're not so greatly used like it was in the 2009 flick . This film caused me more laughs than the zombies and the rules of survival. Yes, it's not a perfect film and it doesn't tries to be one. Go for it purely for its enjoyable and hilarious moments. 10/10
Now this is my style of comedy. It has a great plot, hilarious dialog, awesome actors and a good amount of action. Eisenberg stars as Nick, a pizza delivery driver who never delivers the pizza in time. He hangs out with his friend, Chet and get drunk. On the other side of town are Dwayne and Travis, two slacker friends want money and try to open a tanning salon/brothel. Dwayne decides to hire a hit-man to kill his rich dad, but he needs $100,000 to do so. At random, they get Nick to deliver them a pizza, but they knock him out and strap a bomb to his chest. If he doesn't rob a bank within <more>
ten hours, they will detonate the bomb. Nick asks Chet help him in robbing the bank. The scene when they're robbing the bank is hilarious! Will Nick get the money to Dwayne before times runs out? If you want a dirty dark comedy, you'll love 30 MINUTES OR LESS!!!
Nick Jesse Eisenberg is a down on his luck pizza delivery boy, who has been spinning his wheels since high school both physically and metaphorically. Wheeling about his in vintage early '90s 5.0 Mustang, Nick has to deliver pizza in guess what—30 minutes or less. Failure to complete delivery in time and the pie is on Nick.On the other side of the rut, Dwayne Danny McBride and pal Travis Nick Swardson are piecing together a plan to knock-off Dwayne's father Fred Ward and collect the remainder of his lottery winnings. The plan: hire a hit-man Michael Pena for $100,000. <more>
We've heard this before this summer, but Dwayne and Nick go a step further. They order up a pizza, kidnap Nick and with a bomb vest force him to rob a bank to be able to pay for the hired gun. A convoluted scheme indeed.Bomb armed, Nick seeks help from his BFF Chet Aziz Ansari . Together they plot to rob the bank and in doing so form the protagonist duo. On paper, their quips may not scream Oscar consideration, but their chemistry and execution are second to none. So, if that statement is true then none would be McBride and Swardson who take up an equal stake in total run time and quality moments.30 Minutes or Less does not mess around. With a lightning fast pace, director Reuben Fleischer Zombieland sets up the dueling pairs and puts the plot into action. Amazingly, these pieces don't simply fall into place; they are hurled. The timed bomb plot device works yet again, because once underway 30 Minutes or Less doesn't let up. Cutting back and forth from the equally inept pairings, there is never a sense that one is missing out on the fun.Sure, $100k is a lot for a non-political hit, but these oversights are part of the fun, giving you an idea to the intelligence of the criminal masterminds. McBride also points out a plot convenience, and Eisenberg disses on Facebook. The self-aware nature of these and other jokes help 30 Minutes or Less ascend to regions more evolved than the target demo—the stoner crowd—is accustom. Still, the dialog is laced with as much cursing as anything out there, a basic cable censorship nightmare.30 Minutes or Less isn't exactly treading new ground, but it delivers the laughs. Should you catch it, be sure to sit through the credits as there is an extensive scene that ties up the plot.
I had no idea what to expect, and found myself laughing immediately. The honest and crude of course conflict between the two heroes was the driving force in this movie. You knew they would eventually be friends again. As for the anti-hero, his parallel conflict with his buddy was just as entertaining. The stupidity of their criminal minds was unexpected at every turn just when you thought he was stupid, he outdid himself . The former Marine dad was a funny addition. Anyway, I see a lot of negative reviews and found that they were missing the intent of the film, that is, to entertain and <more>
keep you in suspense while keeping you laughing at the idiocy of it all.
As each year passes by, I swear comedies are becoming more and more vulgar and offensive which I find a good thing because I like when films stretch the limit and see how far they can go. This film, 30 Minutes or Less is certainly trying to extend it's reaches because this movie is nonstop crude and hilarious. There are many scenes that people will cringe because of it's offensive nature. People criticize this because they think it's based on a true story, but guess again. The producers have said they did know of any related event.Ruben Fleischer's follow-up film to Zombieland <more>
is about a pizza delivery guy who is taken hostage and strapped with a bomb and is told to rob a bank or explode to smithereens. Once he gets his best friend involved, there's no turning back.I am surprised Jesse Eisenberg would appear in a movie like this especially after his heads-turning performance in The Social Network but he was really good. He had great chemistry with Aziz Ansari. Danny McBride and Nick Swardson make pretty good baddies because you can sympathize with them...somewhat.Overall, this is a hilarious film. It's on par with Zombieland even though most people don't think so. If you are not a big fan of offensive films, I would not see this at all. I am glad movies are taking ideas to the next level. I rate this film 9/10.
Unpredictable, outrageous and consistently hilarious (by DonFishies)
Despite multiple viewings, I was never a fan of Zombieland. It was not a horrible film by any measure, and was quite the debut feature for Reuben Fleischer, but it still disappointed me every time I tried to watch it. So I went into an advanced screening of his follow-up 30 Minutes or Less this week with significantly lower expectations. Rather thankfully, it surpassed all of them and then some.Nick Jesse Eisenberg is a bit of a slacker, and living a fairly miserable life. He delivers pizzas for a living, while his roommate Chet Aziz Ansari has just started teaching in a local elementary <more>
school. On the last delivery of the night, Nick gets jumped by two wannabe- criminals, Dwayne Danny McBride and Travis Nick Swardson . They want to have Dwayne's father killed, but cannot come up with the money in order to get it done right. So they strap a bomb to Nick's chest, and give him ten hours to rob a bank and bring the money back to them. 30 Minutes or Less is a rare breed of comedy, especially for this summer. It may sound derivative, and may sound even more like it has too much going on at once. But after a chaotically hilarious opening twenty minutes, the film nestles into its niche, and quickly becomes a fairly twisted story that gets more outrageous and dark with every turn. But instead of slowly falling apart like Horrible Bosses and especially The Hangover Part II, the film stays consistent throughout, balancing its tone and its laughs exceptionally. Despite being shorter than Zombieland, Fleischer and screenwriter Michael Diliberti pack in enough material to allow the story to flow briskly, while also never finding a moment to slow down. The one-liners come faster and furiously with every passing minute, and you may miss a lot from laughing so hard. This is a ludicrously high-concept comedy that could have gone horrendously wrong especially given how dangerously close it plays out to a real life event , but it thankfully rarely misses the mark it sets out for itself. Even though the trailer does not suggest it, the film also plays out as a wonderful homage to the buddy films of the 1980s, complete with an inspired soundtrack Glenn Frey's "The Heat is On" plays over an absolutely hysterical key scene, instantly bringing memories of Beverly Hills Cop flooding back . Fleischer and Diliberti are about a year too late to the 80s nostalgia trip, but it does not really matter in this case. Instead of remaking or reimagining a 80s brand for the current time or using the nostalgia simply for jokes, they use that decade's influence to help craft the film to be even stronger. So strong that it almost feels like it belongs in that era, standing alongside the greats. It reminded me a lot of Pineapple Express in the way things play out, but 30 Minutes never allows itself to become overly serious or something it is not. Acting wise, everyone brings their A-game and is absolutely fantastic. Their deadpan and quick-witted responses and chemistry together as a group is simply astounding. Eisenberg plays his usual oafish loser, but brings a kinetic and nervous energy he has so far reserved away from most of his movies. While he is usually calm and relaxed, he lets loose here, and brings about one of his finest comedic performances to date. Much the same goes for McBride, who is larger than life here, casting a shadow over almost everyone. It has taken me a long time to warm up to his brand of comedy, but seeing him in action here is simply magical. He gets all of the best lines, and delivers them with the gusto of a trip master of the craft.Ansari, in his first real major film role, holds it together fairly well, but you can tell he is a bit hot under the collar. It pays off in his insanely delirious performance, but it is a bit too shaky in some cases. Swardson holds his own surprisingly, and proves that he can be an absolute riot when cut off from Adam Sandler and company. Let's hope this film helps him take the hint. But special mention has to go to Michael Peña as the would-be assassin, who dusts off his wacky accent from Observe and Report, and somehow makes himself even more over-the- top. I hate to say it considering how dementedly hilarious the rest of the cast is, but he steals almost every scene he appears in.While my enthusiasm for the film may sound a little overbearing, it is far from perfect. The characters are a bit too under sketched, and never really develop outside of the parameters of the story set-up. They are not quite one-dimensional, but outside of their key traits, there is not much else there. This may sound a bit like nitpicking, but for a film that does so much else right, it seems a little strange that the characters are not better developed. We care about all of these characters, and especially want to see Nick make it out of this situation alive. But I think a bit of extra dialogue here and there to really make something of these characters could have gone a long way. And while I appreciated the movie references, some of the more advertising-like references were a bit excessive Eisenberg mentioning Facebook was cutesy, but Aziz going on a tirade about Netflix pricing seemed a bit forced . I held small hopes I would enjoy 30 Minutes or Less, and was impressed by how wildly hilarious it is. It is instantly quotable, and packs some of the best comedy we have seen this summer. It may come later, and may sound a bit ridiculous, but do not allow that to make you hesitate seeing it. Letting it pass you by is simply criminal.8/10.
Has the body of an action flick and the heart of a comedy (by Nuz_Reviews)
I really enjoy these action-comedy hybrid types. Very fun. With that being said, I will admit that I am certainly within the demographic of the target audience for this film. That demographic being high school boys, college dudes, and young men in their 20s. Perhaps even some in their 30s and possibly 40s could enjoy it too. But, mainly those ages 17 to 28 will especially enjoy this entertaining "dude flick." So, with all of that in mind, I may seem a little bias towards this particular type of film since I am in fact in my 20s. I will try my best to criticize as I see fit. And, let <more>
me just reiterate by saying that this movie is definitely not for everyone and may get a bad rap with all those older professional film critics out there.On to the review.Set in Grand Rapids, Michigan, 30 Minutes or Less begins with the driving montage of a pizza delivery man named Nick, portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg. The song featured in the montage was Tick Tick Boom, by The Hives. Being a Hives fan I enjoyed it immensely. Ya see.. Nick works for a man that resembles the private parts of a grown man, and he has to deliver the pizza under 30 minutes, otherwise it's free of charge and it's taken out of his paycheck. It becomes tricky when the orders are placed outside of the proper delivery radius. His boss doesn't care, and even though Nick has a junker Ford Mustang, his insane driving skills make it all possible. Great set-up for what is about to unfold in the next about 80 gut-wrenching minutes, okay.. maybe not gut-wrenching, but you'll definitely feel something if you laugh like I did.We all know Eisenberg made a brilliant performance in The Social Network, but I enjoy the other characters he can play too. He can do the smart-slacker or the smart-achiever or a mixture of the two, while simultaneously being funny. Not many actors can play multiple attributes so opposite of each other in completely different genres. And, for the ones that can do that, they are the best of the best and the most famous. I look forward to Jesse's career.If you at all enjoyed the director's other action-comedy Zombieland, then this one is for you too. Both will keep you laughing hysterically, while grabbing your attention with somewhat of a sympathetic appeal. I look forward to more of Ruben Fleischer's films, even if they don't all end up being comedies. He can really entertain on screen with a simplistic approach. I like that. The idea of his films are over the top, but the cinematic approach is not. His next project is in pre- production and scheduled for 2013, The Gangster Squad. Also, for those of you whom are Pineapple Express fans, you will most certainly enjoy 30 Minutes or Less.The plot of the film is seemingly as simple as they come, but still works well for a movie like this. The idiotic duo of Dwayne and Travis, played by Danny McBride and Nick Swardson in that order, make it all that much more entertaining. They are tired of being poor losers and want something bigger for themselves. With the help of Travis' unexpected pyrotechnic understanding and Dwayne's insanely what he believes to be smart entrepreneurial mind, the two are able to come up with a Dastardly plan to acquire enough cash to hire an assassin Michael Peña to kill Dwayne's dad, The Major, portrayed by Fred Ward. Side note: I found it interesting that Danny McBride's character is always having daddy issues i.e. the TV show Eastbound & Down ; well, I guess that's the only other role I can think of, but still funny.Obviously the plan that Dwayne comes up with entails the hostage use of Nick. Nick then convinces his best-friend Chet, Aziz Ansari, to get involved with this life or death situation. Along with Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz is definitely becoming one of my favorite comedic actors. Most notably known for his role as the character Tom Haverford in NBC's Parks and Recreation, he always gives my cheek and abdominal muscles a workout.Without giving away too much of the simplistic plot, it's obvious what happens here just by watching the trailer for this movie.So, throughout the film Nick is caught up with his romantic interest Kate, Dilshad Vadsaria; and although attractive, she doesn't really add anything to the film. As sappyily annoying as it was, they should have just stuck with a strict bromance.The car chasing was appealingly entertaining, but with the CGI so common these days it was nothing that I haven't seen before and before again. I just thought they could have done something more insane during those scenes.Although not for everyone, if you agree with most of what I have just wrote about this action-comedy flick, then I would highly recommend you go check it out with all your buddies. This may be a movie to take your significant other to as well, but I'd leave it to the platonic guys night out. If you are hesitant to pay the $8+, then I'd wait for the DVD availability. Enjoy it with a case of beer.8/10 Stars.
Why all the negativity? (by martinrobertson300482)
I Feel as though I'm being overly generous giving "30 minutes or less" such a high score, seeing as reviews for it in general seem to be mixed. But I found it seriously entertaining. Especially when compared to some off the other let downs I've seen lately.I'm quickly becoming a fan off Jesse Eisenberg, considering most things I've seen him in have been ace. These include "Zombieland," which this is a follow-up too, considering the same director is behind it too, as well as it having the same star.Flick sees Eisenberg as a pizza delivery guy who is forced <more>
too rob a bank when 2 bad-guys in ape masks strap a bomb too him and tell him he will be blown up otherwise. He then goes too his friend Aziz Ansari Who gets most off the laughs in the movie too help in pulling such a feat off.The reason I loved this film is that I think it could off worked just as well without the jokes. There's more going on than I've mentioned in the short paragraph above. There were different aspects too the plot which itself could go in any direction, and was different and unpredictable. Off course it helps when the film is also very funny. I see people complaining about some off the crude moments in the movie elsewhere. I'd usually be on the same side as those guys if I'd found it to be too much, but I really didn't this time.
