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

That Ruben Fleischer lacks a discernible directorial identity is one reason the film will likely skip right out of your memory within the titular timeframe.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Probably has the approximate cultural staying power of its title.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 9, 2011
Like his latest, Fleischer's Zombieland borrowed plenty of genre tropes, but paid them back with a self-aware wink. 30 Minutes or Less just takes the money and runs.
August 19, 2011
Even with all these talented performers, I was left with no sympathy for Nick's predicament -- the movie was way more painful than whatever he went through
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 16, 2011
Puerile, irritating and insultingly phallocentric.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 15, 2011
Razor sharp editing keeps an extremely tight pace, but the wasted, non-rhythmic R-rated dialogue and an ensemble cast of morons leaves no-one to root for.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 6, 2011
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.
August 12, 2011
A Beavis and Butt-Head-style bank robbery comedy that leaves you longing for the intelligence and sophistication of a bachelor party in Bangkok.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 13, 2011
30 Minutes or Less is a pretty good description of what works in this 83-minute potty-mouthed action-comedy.

September 16, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 14, 2011
For every good line, there are at least five that fail to connect because they are too crude, sexist, racist or just unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 11, 2011
Moral of the story: If you occupy the demographic that this film is aimed at, Hollywood doesn't have a very high opinion of you.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 12, 2011
This is disappointing news, given that the director of this sputter-rev-sputter ride is Ruben Fleischer​ and that nattering Jesse Eisenberg stars.

The only consistent laughs come from Michael Peņa's eccentric hired killer, the movie's one character who seems like someone we haven't seen a million times before.
September 15, 2011
It all goes horribly wrong, with the characters and the audience united in anguish.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 12, 2011
It's plausible, crude, and fashionably grim - so why isn't it funnier?
August 12, 2011
A mostly bland crime comedy that only occasionally feels fresher or more memorable than that cold pizza you scarfed for breakfast.

The film seemed to move at a good pace, but was not something I would care to see again.

August 5, 2011
Even if the film had been 30 minutes or less, this comedy would still be too long.
