QUICK TAKE:
Action/Comedy: Wanting to kill his father, a low-life and his buddy kidnap a pizza delivery guy, strap a bomb to his chest, and tell him he has ten hours to rob a bank and get the $100,000 they need to hire a hit-man for the job or else they'll detonate the bomb.
PLOT:
Nick (JESSE EISENBERG) is an average guy who -- when not hanging with his school teacher buddy, Chet (AZIZ ANSARI), or secretly seeing that man's sister, Kate (DILSHAD VADSARIA) -- works as a pizza delivery driver and must always contend with needing to beat the 30 minute delivery rule. After his latest delivery, he ends up with a new deadline and that's 10 hours to rob a bank and deliver $100,000 to Dwayne (DANNY McBRIDE) and his dimwitted buddy, Travis (NICK SWARDSON), or else they'll detonate a bomb vest they've strapped to his chest.

Dwayne can't stand his lottery-winning, ex-Marine father, The Major (FRED WARD), and thus Dwayne's favorite stripper, Juicy (BIANCA KAJICH), tells him he can hire a hit-man by the name of Chango (MICHAEL PENA) for one-hundred grand. With he and Travis tracking Nick's every move, the pizza delivery guy and his buddy race against time to pull off the heist, get the money back to the thugs, and receive the code that will deactivate the bomb strapped to Nick's chest.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
