Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson). The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. With mere hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari). As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers, and their own tumultuous relationship.

Critics Consensus: 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.

Language + sex + violence = funny, but not for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this subversive, mature comedy earns its R rating with lots of adult material -- from partial nudity to drug use, violence, and swearing. The villains catch the main character, strap a bomb to his chest, and force him to rob a bank. Guns are also pulled, a flame thrower is used as a weapon, and there are car crashes, fights, and at least one dead body. A strip club scene includes topless women; there are also some implied sex acts (including oral sex) and lots of innuendo. Language is constant, including "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," "t-ts," and "c--k." Characters also drink lots of beer and smoke some pot.
