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.

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.

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
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
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
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
In the end, it's a fitfully amusing, sloppy comedy that doesn't work very hard for your 10 bucks.
May 8, 2009
With a script that snaps and characters that pop, Next Day Air nears neo-blaxploitation perfection.

Boom's comedy is a trap: We like these dudes, and know that while crime does pay, it always takes a deadly cut.
May 7, 2009
Next Day Air can't decide whether it's a broad stoner comedy or a gritty Tarantino-esque action flick. The humor is there, but violence brings the laughter to an abrupt halt.
May 7, 2009
An altogether bumbling excuse for an action-comedy.
May 7, 2009
A very pleasant surprise, Next Day Air is the rare crime comedy that does justice to both sides of the equation.
May 7, 2009
This is a movie that mines its plot from the Stone Age (or is it Stoned Age?) of caper comedies.
