“And your first though was to come to a school, filled with young children?”
30 Minutes or Less is a film that significantly benefits from being in a theater of easily-entertained individuals who dig lowbrow jokes. There are laughs to be had, but let’s be frank, the film is just bad. This is a very significant departure from the director’s previous film, Zombieland. Though both are short, 30 Minutes or Less has a far more black comedy-esque vibe. Subsequently, the production values look and feel vastly inferior. While this isn’t a quintessential trait for comedies, it winds up feeling less like the mild but very enjoyable Zombieland and more like the drab, less-investible Pineapple Express. Entertainment is present, but it’s not even close to worth prime-time money and, given how the film literally just ends, it’s very difficult to recommend.
