'30 Minutes or Less' Sees Humor in Gruesome Bomb Death

Is the movie's plot too much like a real crime?


In August 2003, a group of Pennsylvania bank robbers strapped a bomb to the chest of pizza delivery man Brian Wells, who then walked into a bank and handed the teller a note demanding $250,000. In less than an hour, the bomb detonated, killing Wells right in front of police and TV camera crews. It's one of the strangest crimes in U.S. history, and it's also the inspiration for a new comedy, 30 Minutes or Less, hitting theaters next week.
