30 Minutes Or Less (In 30 Words Or Less)

Pizza delivery driver. Strapped to bomb. Forced to rob bank. Hijinks ensue.

Eisenberg = Eisenberg.

Aziz = Tom Haverford with less pseudo-style.

Worse than Tombstone, better than Totino’s.

This is no comedy classic, but it delivers plenty of laughs, thanks to a witty script and no less than five very hilarious performances. Good review.

Interesting way to review the movie. I like it!

I found the movie hilarious and entertaining, but one of those movies I wouldn't dare give a second viewing to.

It was entertaining on some level but it was just one of those movies (and there are a lot of them) that left me entirely indifferent the second it ended. Which is why I went with a review like so.

Hate.

I hate this movie.

I hated Danny McBride in this movie. As time goes by, the more I realize I just don't care for his humor.

I think that's true. McBride is just a tonally wrong comedian. However, I have to say, I didn't see Your Highness until it was out on video, and had heard that everyone who saw it in the theater hated it. I didn't mind it, and I specifically didn't mind McBride in it.

But McBride was just the start of the problems with 30 Minutes or Less. I hated its borderline racist world view. I groaned throughout this movie. The structure of the plot is a mess, and there were several significant plot threads left hanging.

It was also oddly enabling of its "heroes". I mean, I understand it was supposed to be a "black comedy" but to just let them walk away with the money they robbed.... (Spoiler alert!)
