This well-regarded cult film is a tense Kafka-esque tale concerning what happens to a likable computer guy who is in the wrong place at the wrong time in the city that never sleeps--New York. This is a New York infested with bizarre characters vividly brought to life by a once-in-a-lifetime cast. Griffin Dunne's wonderfully controlled comic performance as Paul Hackett is the glue that holds this increasingly surreal film together. Scorsese utilizes a full array of independent and underground film techniques, including special film speed manipulations, angles, and edits, deftly capturing the strange rhythms of an after-hours New York City. Many will find the jokes clever, and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. Some, however, will find the film an excruciating series of staged circumstances setting up a sadistically cruel dark nightmare of horrors. And there are a few lines of dialogue so poorly written they remind you how unbelievable the thin story really is. But forgive the film these few lapses--overall it's a wild, surreal ride. The most offbeat character is the beehive-sporting, Monkee-obsessed neurotic played to perfection by Teri Garr. And the moment when Griffin Dunne uses his last quarter to play Peggy Lee's "Is That All There Is" and dances with Verna Bloom while an angry mob searches SoHo for him is an inspired bit of lunacy. --Christopher J. Jarmick --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When I searched for this film two years ago Amazon.com informed me that it wasn't available on dvd, but if I wanted they'd send me an email when it became available. And now, two years later, they've sent me that email! I've had friends tell me that they'll call me back in five minutes and they forget to do it, but Amazon.com, after two freaking years, remembers to get back to me about this obscure, hard-to-find movie. This blows my mind.
5 stars to Amazon, and maybe I'll get around to watching "After Hours" some day.

As an educator I find myself saying the silliest thing at least once a month. When a student does something stupid which requires a sheepish look and downcast eyes and the apology, "I don't know what my problem is," I say simply: "Perhaps it's lack of discipline." These words I utter in a slow, deliberate manner to bring full effect. I sometimes forget why I do this...then I remember that wonderful, lost, overlooked gem of a film, "After Hours."
It is brimming over with memorable situations and lines that are not funny standing alone, yet are hilarious in the situation of the movie. It's one of those movies you end up grinning through mostly and find yourself in a full belly laugh the rest of the time.
I always thought it a shame that Griffin Dunne was never really recognized by the studios or the public. He possesses those subtle facial expressions of fear, frustration and dismay that make him incredibly likable. Maybe he's too much like us and the general public needs guys who are tougher, better looking, or more knd than we are. Griffin Dunne never is in movies. He's real. Scorsese scores a quiet masterpiece.
As I was finishing this at my desk at school, a kid from one of my classes walked in and asked me for the school's phone number. I gave her only 6 digits.

After hours is by far one of the best neglected films of the last 20 years. Packaged like a sleazy B movie from the 1980's, i mean look at the video box for chrissakes, it toataly sneaks up on you, partly because you've never even heard of it and secondly maybe because your a fan of those sleazy misogynistic morally ambiguous films, like myself. But instead what you get is a kinetic whitehot pitch black comedy that seems to reinvent editing techniques and camera movement with every scene. This movie is so energetic and hip you would have guessed Scorsese was 19 when he made this, perhaps he was in a mid-life crisis. But who cares After hours is by far the best comedy of the 80's , employing all of the themes that ran through the latter and the decade in itself and pulverising it all into a feverish mush.If you have begun to question the validity of scorsese's work, perhaps because hes been placed on a pedestal by those who are in no position to do so, check this thing out and discover that the masses have finally got one right.

Uptown east side guy finds himself in an entirely new world, even though it's on the same island of Manhattan. This is not a new theme but I doubt if I've ever seen it carried out as far as Scorsese's AFTER HOURS. Griffin Dunne is perfect as the Everyman from a safe neighborhood who, on the hunt for a date (Roseanne Arquette in a very eerie role), finds himself in the artsy/clubby/s&m world of SOHO and the West Village.
The result is a hilarious black comedy with great performances, including a cameo by Cheech and Chong. Scorsese' pacing is breathtaking and right on the money. One of my favorite moments is when a large group of would-be vigilantes try to chase down Griffin Dunne, and their "armored vehicle" is an ice cream truck. There is too much going on here to describe in one review. Just give this one viewing, and you'll be glad you stayed up late to watch.

I haven't seen this movie in many years, but enjoyed it upon watching it again. It's just hilarious what this guy gets himself into in just one night. I don't like giving up too much of the plot, but can tell you this is a great dark comedy that has stood the test of time. Really good!

Surreal and atmospheric entry in Scorsese's catalog. Works better as a thriller than a comedy (as does King of Comedy) which is probably why it's sometimes misunderstood. Still not sure who the burn cream was for (Kiki?) but there you go. Good extras.

Right now I just finished watching 'After Hours,' a film that
makes me somewhat home- and timesick for Soho and the Village in the late 80s. Griffin Dunne is absolutely perfect as the hapless everyguy, and I love the supporting cast, esp. Teri Garr, Linda Fiorentino and Catherine O'Hara (who is great in everything she's in, so long as she plays annoying people; esp. 'Best in Show.') There is a sick poetic justice to 'After Hours,' and is the darkest of black comedies I've seen yet. It's not one of Scorsese's better known movies, and along with 'The King of Comedy,' it is the only comedy I've known Scorsese to have directed. But, it is a small gem and you can tell a New Yorker made it. Only a New Yorker can understand the horror of being stalked by a vigilante mob, spearheaded by a Mr. Softee ice cream truck!!!! The pace of the movie is rapid-fire, too. Sort of like the cadence of Scorsese's voice when he's excited (which is all the time). I remember when it came out, it did not do boffo box office because, as one friend told me, "It's too depressing and negative for a comedy!" I think he missed the point.
