I guess it goes down easy enough, however bland and familiar. Kind of like a cheap pizza. Remember to tip your driver.

Jesse Eisenberg goes from the smartest guy in the room in 'The Social Network' to the most gullible dork in the pizzeria.

There's too much cheese, but there are still enough amusing action beats and funny one-liners to let one say "30 Minutes or Less" delivers, more or less on time.

30 Minutes Or Less has enough of both action and comedy to appeal to multiple demographics, and as far as crude comedies go it's a fun watch.

This is a breezy, fun, and funny film that doesn't waste any time in getting its story told by propelling its characters into one crazy situation after another.

30 Minutes or Less lacks logic, and it doesn't make use of its title concept in any interesting way, but the film is funny, fast and entertaining through-and-through.

The movie unfurls without rhythm, momentum or visual flair, but at a furious pace.

A raunchy heist comedy with a pace as fast as its dialogue, '30 Minutes Or Less' will have you laughing out loud.

The film contains a remarkable level of violence, yet never establishes a tone that would make it seem funny or truly shocking; the jokes flounder in an air of half-hearted spite.

...there's simply never a point at which the film's one-dimensional characters become compelling enough to warrant all this action and mayhem...

A consistently funny, well acted and fantastically short - basically 80mins - little comedy that's more than deserving of your time.

30 Minutes or Less is almost as dumb as its wannabe criminal geniuses, but the film barrels along at such a pace - spraying expletives as it goes - that it doesn't matter that the plot is as battered as Nick's Mustang.

More frenetic than funny, the film bumbles along with three sets of characters endlessly swapping obscene insults.
Michael Leader
Little White Lies

Puerile, irritating and insultingly phallocentric.

It's like a live-action version of a vulgar, violent cartoon: It's cheerful, willfully subversive, speedy, and lightweight.

It's a pity that debut screenwriter Michael Diliberti could not think of any better ways in which to try to make the audience laugh.

Like a sort of laughter thong, it covers very little and doesn't save the blushes of anyone involved.

30 Minutes or Less has one of those screenplays that looks goodish on paper but is only a bit above average.

Everyone bumbles along and the actors go into overdrive trying to convince us that this is all terribly hilarious but most of the time they are fighting a losing battle.

An entertaining enough distraction but not the must-see it might have been.
