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.

The Change-Up

By Tribune Media Services

From the director of Wedding Crashers and The Hangover writers comes this weak and uninteresting farce. Jason Bateman, playing a workaholic lawyer, and Ryan Reynolds, playing his bongaholic buddy, magically change places while peeing in a fountain one drunken evening when each utters, “I wish I had your life!” Some comedies have the knack for shock value, but this film merely has the will to offend. The cast does what it can, but there’s just not much to like here.
