Critic Reviews

  1. 90
    With a script that snaps, characters that pop, a blaze of streetwise attitude and enough firepower to pulverize a significant chunk of South Philadelphia, Next Day Air nears neo-blaxploitation perfection. Good things come in strange packages.
  2. 75
    A bloody screwball comedy, a film of high spirits. It tells a complicated story with acute timing and clarity, and gives us drug-dealing lowlifes who are almost poetic in their clockwork dialogue.
  3. 75
    A very pleasant surprise, Next Day Air is the rare crime comedy that does justice to both sides of the equation.
  4. 70
    Director Benny Boom and screenwriter Blair Cobbs pull off the tough trick of investing profoundly stupid characters with humanity, while cinematographer David Armstrong plays gleefully with the grime-o-vision palette of '70s blaxploitation flicks.

I wish the movie was a little longer, you can only get so much out of 1 hour and thirty minutes. But for a quick laugh, you could do worse. Full Review »
