Cons: crass and crude, which overshadowed the humor and story.
I love a good comedy, and I (confession time) have a rather high tolerance for low-brow humor. But it seems that a spate of recent comedies have pushed the bar lower than ever. 30 Minutes or Less does fall into the low-brow category, but tells a rather entertaining story in a very funny way. I love Jesse Eisenberg; his everyman persona, sort of clueless and earnest, was perfect in this role as Nick, a pizza delivery man who isn't sure what to do with his life.
|Are you guys really that dumb? Yes. Yes they are.|
I have to admit, I did somewhat enjoy the inane, yet sort of clever story line and some of the resulting "How can they be so stupid?" comedy. But with the constant cursing and crude elements, I cannot recommend it.
Bottom line, 1 1/2 stars.
