30 Minutes or Less (2011)

There's something epic about a red-band trailer. All of the profanity, innuendo and general buffoonery only seen in the movie can be squeezed into a 2-minute snapshot of hilarity... And I love it. Another thing, or rather things, or rather people I love are Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari and Danny McBride. Not only are they all good actors, but they piss comedy in their sleep all over the place. '30 Minutes or Less' brings the three together in a slapstick adaptation of the not-so-funny collar bomb robbery of 2003. The plot centers around a pizza delivery man who gets coerced into robbing a bank by kidnappers, who fasten a bomb to him. If he takes the bomb off, it explodes and... well you get the picture. Jokes ensue. Ansari and Eisenberg play the protagonists and McBride is the dimwitted criminal. Yeah, they're character actors, but they do it well. Check the trailer, which is definitely NSFW (not that it would matter... It's Saturday) and tip your pizza delivery man. Word.
