30 Minutes or Less

The four people on the poster are awesome. So why isn't this movie amazing? It was directed by the guy who did Zombieland! This should be my favorite movie. But it's not. Can expectations be set too high? Yes. Is this movie funny? Yes.

Is it based on a true story? Kinda.

Two lazy rednecks who love to blow stuff up at the old mill (?) are convinced by a stripper (who wants to polish your scepter) to hire someone to kill 'The Major' (Fred Ward). But they don't have money to even hire a hit man, so to get that money they kidnap a pizza guy and strap a bomb to him. He has to get the money or he gets blown up.

Okay, just writing the plot in that last paragraph threw me for a loop, so maybe that's why I didn't love it. Its so convoluted. But it is funny. So, non-sensical plots can be forgiven. Not as good as Zombieland, but still worth a look.

Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?
Maybe. (Stay til the credits are over)

Would you buy it?

Would you rent it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
