    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    This movie could really use an Avon Barksdale, but even actor Wood Harris, who played drug kingpin Barksdale in "The Wire," seems a bit lost. show more

    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. show more

    He may be a first-time feature director, but music video master Benny Boom clearly knows how to pull a midlevel movie together. show more

    There's a serious miscalculation when the lighthearted hijinks suddenly give way to a climactic scene of brutal violence. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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. show more

    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. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    What ensues is an uneasy mix of farcical slapstick and comedy of errors with a violent, blood-soaked tale of inner-city crime. show more

    Routine stuff, but things move quickly, with several offhand funny moments. Mos Def is hilarious in a cameo as another delivery guy. show more

    The right combination of goofy character behavior, action set pieces, and narrative drive to keep the movie from ever being boring. show more

    Worse movie I ever had the unpleasant experience to almost sit through. We left after 40 minutes of sheer boredom and ear burning cursing. I do not recommend this to anyone!

    I really didn't think that this movie was as bad as most of the viewers reviews. I thought it was kind of eye opening, that something like this could really happen. The movie also took unexpected turns, which I welcomed. It was better than your average, "well I know what's gonna happen next", movie. Throw in some comedy too.....I thought it was pretty decent.

    An old fashion last man standing shootout, with a good, up to date, drama-comedy fore-story.

    I don't want to give away the plot on this movie with this review..... Oh right, it didn't really have a plot. I have never been more disappointed by a movie. That Mike Epps would act in this garbage that led nowhere and ended like crap says more about his need for money than his care for his reputation. Total crap!!!!! Wait for the video and then wait until it goes on sale for $5.00. Total B movie.
