It's sporadically funny and it benefits from a talented cast, but 30 Minutes or Less suffers from a disjointed narrative, and too often mistakes crude gags for true lowbrow humor.

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.
It's entirely ridiculous, but it gallops cheerfully along; everything is carried off with flair and ingenuity.
It's funny, clever and pacy to a fault, and the script more than satisfies its quota of decent zings.
It never reconciles the meticulous intelligence needed to build the weaponry and the monstrous stupidity needed to use it.
30 Minutes or Less is so shallow, self-satisfied, and downright repulsive that I hesitate to discuss it at all. It has none of the qualities of director Fleischer's debut feature, Zombieland, and it's a long way from Eisenberg's...
Probably has the approximate cultural staying power of its title.
Watching two bright but slightly clueless guys trying to get out of a bad situation is grand fun.
30 Minutes or Less wasn't terrible and when it did make me laugh, it made me laugh a lot. It was just built on the wrong comic premise.
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.
Pizza delivery boy Eisenberg gets cornered into robbing a bank that sets off a domino effect of comedy ... well, that was the intention, and they came THIS close. Still, it does manage not to offend yer sensibilities too much. Not bad.
This movie is so simple and so stupidly funny, that it is entertaining. I enjoyed every second of it. Despite its very clear flaws the movie's strongest points are also its weakest. The movie is choppy, crude, stupid, random, and I loved it.
The film has it's funny spots, but really does falter under the crude attempt to make it funnier than anticipated. 30 Minutes or Less provided loose chemistry among its duo of protagonists and antagonists regardless of the starpower. 3/5
"30 Minutes or Less" is a mixed bag to be sure, but it's also short and pretty sweet. The film's nimble running time definitely works in it's favor. There's some awkward dialogue here, and a flat scene there... but you also get a great comedic bank heist scene, a great extended cameo from Michael Pena, and Danny McBride's impeccable delivery (and all in under 80 minutes. Eisenberg and Ansari are pretty good too). As far as a good rental goes, you can't go wrong with this one.
