Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “When a misguided UPS driver inadvertently delivers a package containing concealed bricks of cocaine to the wrong address, it sets in motion a desperate search and battle for the coke between the furious dealer that sent it, the fearful intended recipients that missed it, and the conniving accidental recipients that plan to flip it. Time is running out and everyone’s trying to get their hands on the package that’s been sent… Next Day Air!”

Movie Critics
…Flashy “Next Day Air” never quite takes wing…
—Lisa Kennedy, The Denver Post
…Things get bloody at the end of this so-called comedy. … God’s name is misused around 10 times… About 200 f-words… Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not sure when drug abuse, theft, beatings, shootings and maimings became even remotely funny. …
—Meredith Whitmore, PluggedIn
…This is a movie that mines its plot from the Stone Age (or is it Stoned Age?) of caper comedies. … None of these characters provides more than a smattering of laughs…
—Janice Page, The Boston Globe
…Routine stuff, but things move quickly, with several offhand funny moments. …
—Kyle Smith, New York Post
…The movie also feels claustrophobic, most of it unfolding inside drab apartments. …
—Rene Rodriguez, The Miami Herald
…Within a few moments, most audiences can answer the question, “Is this supposed to be funny?” But from the violent opening to the nihilistic ending, “Next Day Air” is so cynical that its few laughs are a release of tension. …
—Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
