A typically wacky and surreal "adventure" when an ordinary guy gets caught up in the off beat antics of a collection of "zany" characters when he strays out of his own neighbourhood. I usually find this type of film desperately unfunny and despite an above par cast and director, this is no exception.

Though successful at being a work of particularly grim jocularity, 'After Hours' is essentially the cinematic equivalent of a joke without a punchline. If, however, the script had aimed less for Kafkaesque nightmares and more for farcical frivolities, the end product might have been a bit more satisfying.

Underrated Scorsese gem. The madcap flavor, the odd cameos, the sheer energy of the film is a departure from typical Scorsese. It's a darker version of a screwball comedy and, often, the humor of the film comes from the epic weirdness of what is going on.
