30 Minutes or Less:


It has been a while since my last blog because of some personal issues, but I have finally found some time to review a movie I recently watched.  As you can see from the title, it is 30 minutes or less.  It is about a pizza delivery guy (Jesse Eisenberg) that gets into some trouble when  bomb gets strapped to his chest and his only way of getting it off safely is to come up with $100,000.00.  When I first heard about the plot of the movie I was excited.  It has one of my favorite actors Danny McBride, who I think is way underrated, and it was also directed by Ruben Fleischer.  For those of you who don't know who Ruben Fleischer, he only directed one of the best movies of all time, Zombie Land.  For those of you that haven't seen it, drop what ever you are doing and go buy it directly.  Even with Danny and Ruben having their involvement in the movie, I knew better than to set my hopes up really high for the movie.  Just because Nick Swardson is in it.  He is just an actor I can't seem to find a reason to like.  Nothing he has ever done has even come close to making me laugh and that is extremely hard to do.  Okay, time to stop the complaining about Nick and get to the movie.  The movie starts off showing a toking pizza deliverer that seems to of been inspired by the game taxi way to much.  On the dash you see a clock ticking down which is the time he has to deliver the pizza or it becomes free.  Talented as he is, it seems not every delivery can be on time every time which means he has to come up with some clever ways to cover the cost of the pizza.  This is displayed in the beginning that ends with a crowd pleasing joke.  Pretty much the next 40 minutes of the movie are fillers to let us know how everyone ended up to their current situation which has a lot one liners that eventually build into a fight between two best friends.  It eventually becomes apparent to Danny McBride that he cant rely on his father no more so decides to take matters into his own hands.  Which leads them to Strapping a bomb on Jesse.  The rest of the movie is crammed full of action and scenes and to talk about them in any detail would probably spoil the majority of the movie.  Because of that I will end here and say that I enjoyed the movie a lot, but I don't think its worth the 8 bucks to watch.  I would suggest watching it during a matinee like I did. 

Below I added a choice for you guys to vote one which includes the one I will click 'wait for matinee'.  As always feel free to comment and tell me what you think regardless good or bad.  Also, if there are any movies in theaters or just a random movie you think I should check out and do a review on, please feel free to post them.

  1. Really good review. I was skeptical of the movie anyway but the commercial made it seem funny and being from the director of Zombieland I thought it would be. Do some reviews of like Captain America and Transformers or Cowboys vs Aliens. I have only seen one of those.

    Thanks for the comment. I have seen the first two and Cowboys is on my to watch list. Hopefully I will get to some time in the near future to post of my reviews. Don't forget to vote when you watch the movie and tell us if it was a matinee or not.

  3. Good review! Totally agree with what you said about Zombie Land! I love that movie and I feel sorry for the people who haven't watched it! I mean zombie movies are so overdone and the fact that they basically made a movie explaining the rules to survival in a hilarios manner amazes me! Anyway back to this movie! I think it was a waste of not only my time and money, but also I think I left some brain cells in that theatre. I believe everyone should vote to wait til its rentable! I would go for the Redbox that way you save 7 bucks and only spend 1! lol Love the reactions chart btw!

  5. Thanks Diva. The movie does involve a lot of stupid humor and one liners and not a lot of though is put into it so I can defiantly see your point of view.

    Brob if you haven't seen Zombie Land you should defiantly get a box of twinkies before you watch it. It will save you the time to go out and buy some immediately after.

  22. lol you know I always thought that if you put Jesse Eisenburg and Michael Cera in the same room and turned off the lights you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two.
