30 Minutes or Less Reviews
08.12.11 by reelz
Does the latest raunchy summer commedy deliver the laughs? Or are Fleischer-Eisenberg fans better off at home with Zombieland and a quick pizza? Uh, what's the number for the closest Domino's?
"...an impressively loopy, dirt-black heist comedy..."
— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"..ends up being just sharp enough at its peaks to be frustrating in its valleys. But the laughs are there."
— Michael Phillips, Los Angeles Times
"...as junk-food comedy goes, 30 Minutes or Less packs a surprising number of laughs into its brisk running time..."
— Peter Debruge, Variety
"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."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"If you tune out the dialogue, which is packed with raunch that has neither rhyme nor story reason, there are passable moments."
— Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Even if the film had been 30 minutes or less, this comedy would still be too long."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"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."
— Seth Colter Walls, Village Voice
