30 Minutes or Less didn’t come anywhere close to the awesomeness of Zombieland (which was one of my favorite movies from 2009, and was also directed by Ruben Fleischer) for a few reasons. It was overly vulgar, it wasn’t nearly as clever, and I really don’t like Danny McBride. Also, I’m not sure how I feel about the fact that it strongly resembled the gloomy events that transpired in Erie, Pennsylvania in 2003. However, I will say that I did laugh here and there. It wasn’t a lot of laughter, but it was enough to keep me from hating it.

Verdict: Wait for the DVD/Blu-ray
