Ever heard the expression "The beauty of stupidity"? Of course you haven't, because I just made it up. But that kind of appies here. The beauty of the simple plot is to see what a couple of idiots would do if another couple of idiots strapped a bomb to one of them and they only had a set amount of time to accomplish something. Also, if the guy says you have x hours and don't call the cops or I'll blow you up. Well, if you're an idiot, you probably won't be able to devise a plot to sneak an undercover bomb squad agent into your house to defuse it.

Of course this is all pointless, because it's a stupid comedy.

And then the “have a beer, it’ll wash the taste of yourself out of your mouth” line I almost did a spit-take!!

I agree with you... I know exactly what you're saying but, what I mean is, this movie wasn't billed or sold as a "stupid character" movie. When I think of those comedies (stupid-character movies, which are great) I think of titles like Ace Ventura, Dumb & Dumber, or anything with Will Ferrell in it, aka "Man-Child" movies, where the characters are actually dumb and we know it and accept it.

There's no set-up that lets on that Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari are dumb "man-children" in 30-Minutes or Less like Jim Carrey characters, Jeff Daniels characters, Will Ferrell characters or John C Reilly characters are in their movies.

Thirty Minutes or Less was set up like a regular comedy aka The Hangover or Superbad but, to me wasn't as funny as either Superbad, Hangover, Ace Ventura or a Will Ferrell flick. Good but, not laugh-out-loud funny is all.

I actually thought it was pretty obvious from the trailers that Eisenberg and Ansari's characters where huge idiots, as well as McBride's and Swardson's. It was a double, double-idiot comedy. So 'what would an intelligent person do', etc. never crossed into my mind. Besides, I think the not calling the police - or anyone for that matter - was handled by a line or two of dialogue.

Besides, Eisenberg's character never called anybody - he just visited them.

Plus this is just a preposterous, silly comedy. It was very funny to me so it was easy to not think seriously about it.

Especially when Fred Ward caught them in the act, and what he said had me rolling off the couch.

There are so many funny lines and one that stuck out after viewing again the other night is when McBride and Swardson are talking in the van and McBride says something like, "What is one thing that this town is missing? I'll give you a hint - it's a cash business and crawling with sexy b*tc*es." And Swardson answers, "Chinese food restaurant?"
lol, I fell off the couch again.

The picture-in-picture video commentary was really good. I wish more films did that with commentaries.
