Forty years from now, this may be fascinating for its relentless early 21st-century 'urban' slang and attitude. Let's hope it also seems antique for the idea that guns are as accessible as Kleenex...

the movie is truly an imitation because it lacks the quality and finesse that this sort of genre usually has

Next Day Air is dumb. Completely, totally and almost irredeemably dumb.
May 8, 2009
He may be a first-time feature director, but music video master Benny Boom clearly knows how to pull a midlevel movie together. That's harder than it sounds.
May 8, 2009
Far from the worst of Taran tino knockoffs, Next Day Air takes the standard formula of dimwits chasing bags of drugs to the 'hood.
May 8, 2009
An ungainly hybrid of stoner comedy and gangsta drama.
May 8, 2009
Guy Ritchie called. He wants all of his movies back.
May 8, 2009
From the violent opening to the nihilistic ending, Next Day Air is so cynical that its few laughs are a release of tension.
May 8, 2009
Good lord this movie is boring!
May 8, 2009
Screenwriter Blair Cobbs delivers some good lines, but the inconsistent tone and overacting by some of the lesser actors sabotage his efforts.
May 8, 2009
First-time feature director Benny Boom and writer Blair Cobbs get a lot of help from their cast, and the banter is often akin to a thug Three Stooges routine. But blood and predictability sour things in the end.
May 8, 2009
Next Day Air is a stylish movie that smoothly shifts from genial comedy to violent action and back again, almost like a Missy Elliott song cramming together four different snippets that magically mesh.
May 8, 2009
Stripped of f-bombs and b-words, Blair Cobb's screenplay could make a fortune- cookie threat. "You will see a bad movie today."
May 8, 2009
Violence overshadows humor in urban action comedy.
May 8, 2009
A messy and unpleasant genre mashup that needed at least two or three rewrites before shooting started.
May 8, 2009
In the end, it's a fitfully amusing, sloppy comedy that doesn't work very hard for your 10 bucks.
May 8, 2009
Next Day Air is a talentless travesty, a trying torture fest that wants to believe it's cool and contemporary.
May 8, 2009
An incessantly talky, inert crime film that's like a hip-hop poseur, all swagger and mouth but with no real taste for the grittiness of thug life.
May 8, 2009
Next Day Air is unecessarily violent and completely pointless. One of the worst films of the year.
May 8, 2009
With a script that snaps and characters that pop, Next Day Air nears neo-blaxploitation perfection.
