30 Minutes or Less

Rated NR 2011

It’s plausible, crude, and fashionably grim — so why isn’t it funnier? A pizza delivery man (Jesse Eisenberg) gets kidnapped by a pair of even bigger losers (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson) and forced to rob a bank with a bomb strapped to his chest. Naturally he takes his best friend along (Aziz Ansari). Sub-Coen-Brothers all the way, with a few laughs by Ansari and Michael Peña as a challenged hit man. For Eisenberg, it’s a step backward to the dumb ‘n’ dumber comedies he mostly avoided before The Social Network. Directed competently by Ruben Fleischer from a screenplay by Michael Diliberti, from a story Diliberti wrote with Matthew Sullivan. (89 min.)
