Music by: Ludwig Göransson

Producers: Stuart Cornfeld; Ben Stiller; Jeremy Kramer

Keywords: Action/Comedy, Pizza Delivery, Bank Robbery, Explosions

A man seeking seed money to open a business with his best friend straps a time bomb to a pizza deliveryman, forcing him to rob a bank or risk losing his life.

ABSTRACT
Dwayne, a less-than-brilliant young man, desires to open a massage parlor with best friend Travis, but does not possess the funds required to do so. Determined to come up with the necessary cash, Dwayne hires a hitman to eliminate his wealthy father. When the would-be killer demands $100,000 up-front to complete his assignment, however, Dwayne and Travis devise a plan to strap a time bomb to slacker pizza deliveryman Nick, handing him an ultimatum to rob a bank within ten hours or risk losing his life in an explosive fashion. Though the cast and crew of 30 Minutes or Less vehemently denied prior knowledge of real-life stories, the events of the film nonetheless bore a striking resemblance to the 2003 case of Brian Douglas Wells, a pizza deliveryman who died when a bomb strapped to his neck detonated in the midst of a botched bank robbery.
