Dwayne and Travis (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson) are losers without prospects. But Dwayne's dad is rich, so he figures he can solve his problems by hiring a hitman to kill his dad and collecting his inheritance. Still, hitmen aren’t cheap. So Dwayne and Travis kidnap pizza-delivery guy Nick (Jesse Eisenberg), strap an explosive vest on him, and tell him he has 10 hours to rob a bank and deliver $100,000 to them. Then Nick gets his friend Chet (Aziz Ansari) involved. Yes, it sounds ludicrous, but the story is loosely based on an actual 2003 bank robbery in Pennsylvania. But unlike the real-life heist, which ended tragically, 30 Minutes or Less is a whole lot of fun. Eisenberg plays straight so well that Ansari steals every scene he's in. But the real stars are writers Matthew Sullivan and Michael Diliberti, whose bizarre and raunchy script piles on the crazy.
