Next Day Air is well-intentioned but ill-thought, an amateur work by a first time filmmaking team trying to make the kind of film they like to watch, but ignorant of what makes those kinds of films work.

[Director Benny Boom] keeps the proceedings competent in the face of a labyrinthine plot that begs for more so-called flair than it deserves.

Updates the spirit of blaxploitation without feeling pressed to worship or satirize it.

Nearly every scene is a play on the perception that the accumulation of wealth will bring social validation and self-worth.
September 8, 2009
Based on modest expectations Next Day Air delivers just the entertainment package it promises -- namely, dumb laughs laced with violence -- and it kinda works.

I admire Benny Boom's effort; he wanted to make a movie and did it. One can only hope his next venture in Hollywood will be more original and sharp.

It delivers neither laughs nor chills and offers no visuals more interesting than the Exit signs on the theater doors.

Next Day Air is sort of bracing, though it isn't very good: Its total lack of dramatic and comic bearings, to say nothing of a point, keeps you wondering about the next fatality, in a half-interested way.

Best to refuse this delivery

Consistently unremarkable from its dullsville title on down.
May 13, 2009
Here's a project so ill-conceived that it finds room in its cast for the talented Mos Def but then bungles that gift by giving him the smallest role among the principal cast members.

Filmgoers who think outside the artmovie box will discover that the artful and enjoyable Next Day Air offers an episode of 21st-century black American life that August Wilson never got to.

Guy Ritchie never made anything this bad and boring on the worst Madonna-influenced, crypto-Kabbalistic day of his life.
May 13, 2009
There are no cops, not much farcical energy, and none of the satiric edge it would take to pull off the film's grim denouement.
May 11, 2009
I've seen much funnier films from Mike Epps.
May 11, 2009
An amusing tail of incompetent criminals.
May 10, 2009
I barely detected moments that even seemed like they were supposed to be funny, let alone ones that actually were.
May 10, 2009
I like Donald Faison, Mos Def and Mike Epps - but I really disliked this movie and them in it.
May 9, 2009
A screwball comedy/splatter flick which might best thought of as a campy cross of Cotton Comes to Harlem and No Country for Old Men.
