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.

Crazy, Stupid, Love

By Tribune Media Services

This ensemble rom-com falls short. An L.A. wife and mother played by Julianne Moore announces that she wants a divorce from her husband (Steve Carell). Carell’s character moves out, eventually coming under the tutelage of a ladykiller (Ryan Gosling). The Moore character gets little satisfaction from a short-lived fling; Carell’s character goes on a sexual tear but never loses sight of the love of his life. Ultimately, the script treats the adults like children while pulling the old shtick about putting the real wisdom in the mouths of its teenagers.
