Wow, what a twisted movie, twisted plot and a very twisted night. Categorizing this movie might be difficult, horror is somewhat what happens but it clearly is not a horror movie. "Drama as in: long drawn out boring plus riddled with things in life that create "drama" or aspects of life you don't want." This could apply, especially in the things you don't want to happen department. It probably isn't drawn out and boring, but it isn't overly exciting either. If you are looking for a Bronson Pinchot movie, you can watch about the first seven (just guessing) minutes then pretty much forget about him.

This is one of Scorsese's lesser known 80's projects. It is an unusual film, to be sure, but as with all of the man's movies you will definitely be entertained. Griffin Dunne is perfectly cast as a bored tech nerd looking for action on the streets of Soho and ends up finding way more than he ever wanted to experience. The movie has many hilariously funny scenes along with some sad and even somewhat grim moments as Dunne wanders through a surreal late-night urban environment, meeting various eccentric characters.

hgibbins-- if you think that many rotten things can't possibly happen to one person all at once, I'd say you've been too lucky in your life. I didn't change my name to LaustCawz for nothing.

I love this movie. An adult fantasy about a night in NYC. Wild and wacky, and fun and hilarious, but also strange and odd at times.

Love that old TV remote that is shown in the beginning of the film. An old phone answering machine too. How quickly some things change!

When I saw this film back in the 80s the Peggy Lee song “Is that all there is?” was the perfect accompaniment in the film. Like in the song, the character goes from surviving one crisis to escalating crisis challenging ?Is that all there is? --- I didn’t demand that this film be real, I took it in the same vein as many of the films of the early 80s (Diva, Brazil, Liquid Sky): dreamlike weirdness.

After Hours is rather odd, but a fairly good movie. It lacks believability as there are too many off-beat things that happened to this one guy. It reminded me more of a something you'd see in slapstick or a similar genre as there was just too much to completely take in.
