About the Movie

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 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: For a soul-sucking 83 minutes, you're trapped inside the film's tiny, ugly mind. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Aug 12, 2011

Rotten: It never reconciles the meticulous intelligence needed to build the weaponry and the monstrous stupidity needed to use it. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Aug 22, 2011

Fresh: 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, Aug 12, 2011

Fresh: It's a bit like the Three Stooges on crack -- nutty, loud, profane and full of laughs. It won't change your life and it might hurt your ears, but it should keep you smiling. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Aug 12, 2011

30 Minutes or Less definetly delivers laughs with this great cast. This concluded the 2011 year for R-rated summer comedies

It is Pretty Awesome

Screw the Tomatometer. This movie is great. And I tend to be a bit of a movie snob. If anything, watch it for Aziz Ansari.


Not only is this movie hilarious but it has a PLOT! I know right?! Anyways it's one of the best movies nick swardson has ever starred in
