After Hours is a prime example of good writing and a solid comedy from the legendary Martin Scorsese. Starring Griffin Dunne as a man having the worst night of his life, this film only gets more unbelievable as it progresses as we see one man's quest to get home.
The film does a great job of creating outrageous and memorable characters, which are brought to life by an awesome cast of character actors. Paul Hackett's journey from Marcy's apartment in Soho to the most unforgettable night of his life is a hell of a tale to tell. Scorsese takes what could have filled a sitcom episode and transforms it into one of his most entertaining films.
After Hours is a must-see for Scorsese fans, as it is one of his rare ventures into the realm of comedy. He gives us all a glimpse into the nightlife of New York City, a concrete jungle that only the strongest can wade through unscathed, and creates a great movie in the process.
