This movie combines two different lives that come together thanks to a pizza delivery commercial.  Jesse Eisenberg plays Nick, a pizza delivery guy that is going nowhere.  Danny McBride plays Dwayne, a son of a lottery winner/ ex marine, who has nothing to do.

Dwayne and his sidekick Travis ordered a pizza and then manipulated Nick into robbing a bank for them by strapping a bomb to his body.  Why do that?  Dwayne needed the money, so that a stripper named Juicy(Kajlich) cold get her man  Chango (Pena) to kill his dad, The Major (Ward).  Why do that?  So Dwayne could live off of what was left of The Majors lottery winnings.    Of course everything goes wrong, Nick’s friend Chet (Ansari) and his twin sister Kate (Vadsaria) get invovled and people end up hurt.  In the end Nick got his girl and the money.  Wait, the money had an ink bomb in it so it was useless from the get go.

Elizabeth’s thoughts:

Everything you have seen in the previews is funny.  Other than that the movie was OK.  If you want to see Jesse Eisenberg be Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari be Aziz Ansari then you will enjoy those parts.  Other than that, wait for it to come on Comedy Central after midnight.  The movie was less than an hour and a half yet it seemed to go on forever.  I give this movie 1/ 5 stars.

Sunshine’s Thoughts:

I didn’t hate this movie, but i definitely wish i had not paid to go see it.  Like Liz said what you saw in the previews was the funny parts of the movie, but to its credit these parts still got me laughing.  Plus you got to see Aziz riff a little more on each joke than what you see on television.  The movie did feel like it ran longer than an hour and a half and that is never a good sign for a “funny” movie.  Wait for tv on this one.  I give this movie 1.5/5 stars.

    This is no comedy classic, but it delivers plenty of laughs, thanks to a witty script and no less than five very hilarious performances, especially Ansari who totally owns every scene he’s in. Good Review! Check out my site when you can!
