Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Next Day Air

This is what happens when the deliveryman delivers a package of cocaine to the wrong apartment. Donald Faison plays the main character Leo. He makes the simple mistake of delivering a package to apartment 303 instead of the correct apartment, which is 302. The character named Jesus Gonzalez (played by Cisco Reyes) is waiting nervously for the package to arrive because it is full of cocaine. The two guys, Brody (played by Mike Epps) and Guch (played by Wood Harris), in the apartment that get the package by mistake are petty thieves. They open the package even though it belongs to their neighbors. They find the cocaine. They decide to sell it to Shavoo (played by Omari Hardwick) who is a dealer they know. Shavoo comes to the apartment and agrees to buy the cocaine, but he has to go get the money.

The boss of Gonzalez, Bodega (played by Emilio Rivera) calls Gonzalez to confirm he received the package. Gonzalez says he did receive it, even though the tracking information says the package delivery has a confirmation. Gonzalez suspects the deliveryman Leo stole the package. Gonzalez goes with his girlfriend Chita (played by Yasmin Deliz) to hunt down Leo. They capture the wrong deliveryman and end up stealing his watch.

Meanwhile, when Shavoo goes to his storage locker to get the money to pay for the cocaine, he finds his locker is empty. All his money was stolen. He tortures the clerk at the storage locker facility until he tells him where the money is. They get the money back. They return to the apartment building to buy the cocaine.

Gonzalez tries to run, but Bodega shows up. They search the city looking for Leo. When they find Leo they torture him, but he honestly does not remember what happened or how the package got lost. When he is brought back to the apartment building, he remembers he delivered it to 303. Bodega forces Leo to ask the occupants of 303 what happened to the package. Brody tells him, through the slightly open door, he sent the package back to the main office. Bodega does not believe this and crashes through the door. There is a shoot-out. Leo hits the floor and stays down, pretending to be dead. Brody, Guch, and Bodega are killed by each other. Shavoo is almost killed. Shavoo decides that dying over a drug deal is not worth it and barely escapes with his life. Gonzalez is shot, but not dead. The watch he stole earlier saves him. Leo takes the money and leaves. Chita comes in the room to help Gonzalez. They take the cocaine and leave.
Best part of story, including ending: It has an amusing theme of criminals robbing criminals.

Best scene in story: I like the scene when Shavoo first discovers his storage locker has been robbed because of how much it surprises him.

Opinion about the main character: I like that Leo gets away with the money at the end.
