More Info:
  • Cory Everett

    Afternoon Delight succeeds mainly because although the premise is broad, writer/director Jill Soloway is determined to keep it real.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    It’s a crisp and often hilarious female-centric social satire loaded with delicious talent from the TV-comedy pool. Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The results feel a little life lesson-y but also well-earned and well-observed, and Hahn takes advantage of a rare lead role to locate both the ugliness and beauty in her character.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Leba Hertz

    Director Jill Soloway gets the most out of her actors, fleshing out their characters and letting us know what makes them tick. It's refreshing to hear dialogue that's natural and modern and doesn't try to pontificate. And the rewards are many.

  • Laremy Legel

    Afternoon Delight will both depress and engage an audience, usually just depending on the minute of the movie you find yourself watching. Full Review
  • Sean O’Connell

    The movie’s a mixed bag, but Hahn makes the most of her opportunities. Casting directors would be wise to take note.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's an up-and-down movie, honest one minute and a fraud the next, but you stick with it mainly because of Hahn.

  • Anna Smith

    Six Feet Under scribe Jill Soloway offers a wry perspective on married life as Temple's stripper-with-a-heart is lobbed into this domestic yarn like a firecracker in an arms cache.

    Empire Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Kathryn Hahn gives an outstanding performance in what is ultimately a not-very-amazing movie.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Whether or not you wince, this meticulously acted movie, which won Ms. Soloway a directing award at the Sundance Film Festival, paints an accurate picture of how a segment of youngish, educated, affluent, white Americans converse. It is anything but inspiring.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matt Patches

    Soloway mines her ensemble of funny ladies more for laughs than emotional insight, but Hahn breaks through it all; she’s the one who provides the glossy rumination with actual heart.

  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Afternoon Delight has many small pleasures but falls far short of reaching the G spot.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Things play out in predictable fashion, and we’re more than ready to bid farewell to these people and feel grateful they don’t live on our block.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    This cannot end well—we know this—but the major turn Afternoon Delight takes is jarring and irreparable. Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    Alas, the film, which had at worst seemed unfocused (not a cardinal sin for a comedy), takes a bizarrely reactionary turn in the homestretch, undermining all of the goodwill Hahn had accumulated up to that point and turning her character into detestable yuppie scum.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Aiming to discomfort, the film ends up retreating.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    A film whose themes are as neatly laid out as its characters' behavior is preposterous.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Alissa Simon

    Although there are moments when it feels the plot might move in unexpected directions, in the end, the expected cliches reign.

    Variety Full Review
  • Farran Smith Nehme

    There are some bright one-liners in the beginning, but the comedy/drama mix is an uneasy one, especially considering the shabby way the film treats McKenna, as a tart who’s just there to improve some yuppie sex lives.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Afternoon Delight is one of those bad films that seem to drift further and further away from a recognizable reality the more we get to know it.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    It’s impossible to buy into the film’s plea to be taken seriously at the end, just as the upbeat finale feels false.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tomas Hachard

    Jill Soloway's film is dishonest in the way it attempts to mask self-pity as enlightened self-criticism.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    Director Jill Soloway's comedy-drama isn't perfect – the leitmotif about open eyes feels over-workshopped, and the ending's a bit pat – but it nails with self-lacerating precision the manners and mores of a certain type of hipster parent, the bourgeoisie's muddled attitudes towards sex workers, and the precarious foundations of friendship.
