Either my standards are getting lower, or some of these R-rated, twentysomething-targeted comedies are getting funnier. “30 Minutes or Less” (2011) has a detailed but understandable plot, quirky characters and lots of snappy dialogue (Between all the f-bombs. It is what it is.). Maybe the producers felt they needed the story to be better than a typical Sandler/Apatow effort due to the B-list cast (Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari, the dude from the Facebook movie, etc.). Or maybe my mind was in a fog after a lapdance scene that happened early on and starred the brunette chick from “Rules of Engagement.”
