30 Minutes or Less

(R) ★★☆☆☆

Fast, cheap and out of control, director Rube Fleischer’s film doesn’t even crack the 84-minute mark. Roughly half of this film works a lot better than the other half. Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a pizza delivery guy who gets pulled into a tangled web of bank robbery and murder by Dwayne (Danny McBride). For most of the film, Nick runs around with explosives strapped to his chest, breaking the law with his buddy Chet (Aziz Ansari). The movie is sharp enough, but uneven. The laughs are there.
