Trivia

It was widely reported that during the filming of a scene in the movie between the characters of Mike Epps and Omari Hardwick, an altercation between the two ensued and escalated, causing Mike Epps to leave the set threatening Omari Hardwick, shouting he was going to his car in the parking lot to retrieve his gun and was going to come back and "handle" Hardwick. Darius McCrary, who was also an actor on the set, is credited with calming Epps down and de-escalating the situation, as he followed Epps to the parking lot to talk him out of it. See more »

One ingredient short of being good...
2 September 2014 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Next Day Air" wasn't particularly funny, and I had expected it to be more of a comedy after having read the synopsis. So I was sorely disappointed once the movie ended.

The story is about a delivery of narcotics gone bad. As the unknowing delivery guy delivers a package to the wrong address, a large shipment of drugs end up in the hands of two men desperate for money. Those whom the delivery were intended for never receive the shipment and become pressed by their boss, meanwhile those who got it by mistake set off to sell the drugs through their contacts.

The story was entertaining enough, but I had just expected something more in the funny department.

The acting in the movie was good, and people were doing good jobs with their given roles and characters.

There was just something missing from the movie that kept it from being a good movie experience. What it was, I had no clue. But I sit here after having seen the movie and thinking that it could have been better. It is like a particular ingredient missing from your tomato sauce to make it stand out, you know?

"Next Day Air" had its moments, sure. But ultimately, then it wasn't an impressive movie. And as such, I am rating it 4 out of 10 stars.
