30 Minutes or Less
 30 Minutes or Less starring Jesse Eisenberg: Blu-ray Cover In Grand Rapids, MI, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) has generally not lived up to his potential. He works as a pizza delivery man, and his only friend is schoolteacher Chet (Aziz Ansari); Nick is also secretly in love with Chet's sister. Meanwhile, Dwayne (Danny McBride) is fed up watching his lottery-winner father (Fred Ward) waste all his riches, and decides, along with his buddy (Nick Swardson), to hire a contact killer and take out the old man. To do this, they need money. So they devise a plan to kidnap a pizza delivery man, strap a bomb to his chest, and force him to rob a bank. When Nick is forced to take on this assignment he calls on Chet for help. What follows is a crazy, reckless race against time. Will our heroes survive the day?

The violence, on the other hand, almost seems a bit displaced, especially the use of the bomb vest; it recalls all-too-serious images from the news. Regardless, 30 Minutes or Less directed by Ruben Fleischer ("Zombieland") never stops being fast, funny, or crazy, and the combination of it game cast helps tremendously. Jesse Eisenberg turns in a believably panicked performance, and he's nicely matched by stand-up comic Aziz Ansari. Even the bad guys show their humanity from time to time, and Fred Ward is very funny as the nasty old dad.
