  • Summary: Life isn't going smoothly for Leo Jackson. He still lives at home, he just broke up with his co-worker girlfriend and he's had so many complaints about his sloppy work habits that his own mother is threatening to fire him. But Leo isn't one to let a few bad breaks ruin his day—as long as he's got plenty of weed to take his mind off his troubles. But when the wacked-out courier accidentally delivers a box containing 10 kilos of high quality cocaine to the wrong apartment, it sets in motion a hilarious and harrowing chain of events that could cost him his life.

    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 very pleasant surprise, Next Day Air is the rare crime comedy that does justice to both sides of the equation.
  3. He may be a first-time feature ­director, but music video master Benny Boom clearly knows how to pull a midlevel movie ­together.
  4. Reviewed by: Rob Calvert
    Predictable, and stereotypical.
  5. Reviewed by: Stephen Farber
    There's a serious miscalculation when the lighthearted hijinks suddenly give way to a climactic scene of brutal violence.
  6. Reviewed by: Dan Kois
    I wished Next Day Air were funnier. In the end, it's a fitfully amusing, sloppy comedy that doesn't work very hard for your 10 bucks.
  7. 11
    Might make a terrific double bill with the equally inane (but considerably more entertaining) "Con Air," with the French electonica duo Air chirruping in the background. But, you know, only if you're stoned out of your head.

    A good movie with good characters and a good script, but bad execution. 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. Expand

    I don't get if this was a comedy or what but I didn't laugh once if it was. Wasn't all that bad a movie but it wasn't really great either. You could not watch it and u wouldn't be missing much. Expand
