First, let me explain my reasoning with a list of things I love. First, action comedies. It’s a combination of my two favorite genres; action and comedy. Second, Jesee Eisenberg. He was hilarious in Zombieland, but The Social Network proved he is a fantastic actor to. Third, Aziz Ansari. Watch Parks and Recreation; Aziz is hilarious. Next, Zombieland. That film just gets me. And lastly, pizza. That one’s only vaguely related.
So now that you have a list of all the things I love, you probably can assume what I think about the trailer for an action comedy starring Jesse Eisenberg as a pizza boy and Aziz Ansari as his best friend from the guy who made Zombieland. Yeah, connect the dots.
The trailer [thanks goes to IGN for premiering it]:
Official Plot Synopsis:
In the action-comedy 30 Minutes or Less, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson). The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. With mere hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari). As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers, and their own tumultuous relationship.
30 Minutes or Less opens on August 12.
