I wanna see this film so fucking bad. I definitely would have rented it by now if it had a DVD. I've been hoping to catch it on TV or something.

Are there any fans of it here? Just wondered what some of you guys thought of it. I think it sounds fucking awesome...like a really fun movie.

I saw it back when I knew nothing about film, but I remember laughing a lot. I didn't love it, but I'm sure I would now. Griffin Dunne (sic??) is spot-on, and the little cameos (Cheech & Chong, et al) are cute.

Kinda reminds me of what a friend said about Punch Drunk Love: you laugh harder in the parking lot after the movie. In other words, the more you think about what you saw, you remember how certain parts were just hilarious.

Hope this helps...
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

[sic] is not an internet term. It is used widely in the world of journalism. It basically means: "I/We know this word or phrase is wrong, but we are quoting in context."

'Sic' officially means Submitted In-Correct. When journalists quote something that has a grammar or spelling error, they add it so that the public doesn't think they made a mistake.

Anyway, 'After Hours' is hilarious. One of Scorsese's lighter efforts, for sure, but its brilliantly madcap and inventive. A nice cinematic upper.

oops, Cecil is right. I meant "sp".

oh well.

After Hours is one of Scorsese's lesser efforts, although it is still worth viewing, and should be put on DVD.  The film starts out promisingly, but grows repetitive in the second half.  Visually, it's well-done (especially considering its low budget), and Rosanna Arquette is great.
Music is your best entertainment value.

The quick shots of the medical book in "Rules Of Attraction" are a direct rip off of the burn book in "After Hours".


Laserdiscs are a great thing...and in widescreen too.

OOOH! I know this movie. It was on TV the other day and I caught 30 mins of it. I really liked it but had to turn it off and do some work. I didn't know it was old Marty.

i havent seen this yet.  but since its not out on dvd, i just bought it for 2.50 on VHS at the local video store here. which, is cool, since it would cost me more to have to rent it.   BUT, i missed a copy of la dolce vita for 2.50 by just a few minutes.  regrets...

I enjoyed the movie. It seems like an effort you really have to judge on how inventive it is to get you to like it. It isn't really that inventive, but still a fun movie. A great deal of the movie didn't really rely on wit and cleverness or invention, but just a storyline following this guy through the night. The results of what he would do were always absurd and by the end of it, (spoiler) he just ended up back at his job for his next day's shift. When I saw that, I was kinda dissapointed with everything I saw before. Was the movie trying to be a satire of some sorts on society? Was it trying to make any points? With the ending, I thought it maybe could have attempted something. Oh well, the ride was still fun. A very very very minor effort.

just watched this. it was okay, i liked it better at the beginning when it was funnier and wackier before it spiraled into some sort of hellish nightmare.  the believability even for a wacky premise went further out the window too.  i dunno, it got too dark for my tastes.  some stylish camerawork, but i'll have to stick by my preference for disliking scorseses 81-89 work.
