Jesse Eisenberg in "30 Minutes or Less" trailer

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson and Michael Peña, the film centers on two white trash fledgling criminals (McBride and his lapdog lieutenant Swardson) who kidnap a slacker pizza delivery driver (Eisenberg) and force him — by ticking bomb — to rob a bank. Ansari plays Chet, the history teacher best friend of Eisenberg’s character who has his shit together, but gets roped into the kidnapping. Peña plays a gangster character who becomes a significant problem in the second act of the screenplay. And so far, there’s only the barest hint of a plot here and more troubling—as was suggested by some feedback we received from early screenings—Ansari, as funny as he is, looks a bit uneven opposite Eisenberg. That said, his reaction to the bomb-strapped Eisenberg coming to his school made us laugh out loud. Source:
