30 Minutes or Less doesn't waste any time, clocking in at a brisk 83 minutes. It feels a lot longer though, as many of the jokes and (supposed) witty banter continually fall short of the mark.

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.

The movie unfurls without rhythm, momentum or visual flair, but at a furious pace.
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.
November 25, 2011
...there's simply never a point at which the film's one-dimensional characters become compelling enough to warrant all this action and mayhem...
September 18, 2011
More frenetic than funny, the film bumbles along with three sets of characters endlessly swapping obscene insults.
September 16, 2011
Puerile, irritating and insultingly phallocentric.

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.
September 16, 2011
Like a sort of laughter thong, it covers very little and doesn't save the blushes of anyone involved.
September 16, 2011
30 Minutes or Less has one of those screenplays that looks goodish on paper but is only a bit above average.
September 16, 2011
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.
September 15, 2011
It all goes horribly wrong, with the characters and the audience united in anguish.
September 15, 2011
Crude, charmless and knuckleheaded.
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.
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.
September 6, 2011
The film seemed to move at a good pace, but was not something I would care to see again.
August 25, 2011
This movie doesn't just have a bomb strapped to it; it is a bomb.
August 22, 2011
It never reconciles the meticulous intelligence needed to build the weaponry and the monstrous stupidity needed to use it.
