Unappealing characters and a dumb story. Skip it.

The mix of thievery intrigue, humor, exotic slacking and animal attraction are a classy recipe for stealing audience affections.

After the Sunset is the sort of movie that may not find its ideal audience until channel-surfing insomniacs discover it late some evening, long, long after sunset indeed.

Audiences seeking mild diversion might prefer approaching it as Lola does her new surroundings: 'The challenge is to find joy in simple things'.

As guilty pleasures go, this is as good as three rum punches on a hot afternoon at a beach bar. It won't do you any good, but hey, it's a lot of fun.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

The dialogue mimics the terseness [of Elmore Leonard's work] without the snap or humor. Almost every word sounds recycled from another movie.

Folks who like these actors will probably have fun with the film. Just don't go in with high expectations, as the script and direction are merely average.

Beautiful to look at (particularly any scene containing Salma Hayek) and has a zippy energy, but there's nothing going on underneath its attractive surface.

What you get with this film is an unoriginal concept using the backdrop of a resort to lure us to see a heist film where our time is only thing that was stolen.

Like a holiday page-turner, there's nothing terribly profound in this heist movie cum-comedy, but the characters are likeable and it's easy on the eye.

Devoid of a clever script and truly charismatic chemistry, it plays out as one big, glossy yawn.

...[a] hollow heist flick. Alas, After the Sunset maintains having the trivial tension of a fifth grade spelling bee contest. Repeat after me...Paradise Lost.

Spends so much time down Selma Hayek's shirt fronts that we come away suffocated.

Every bit as easygoing as its tropical island setting, and every bit as uninspired and uninspiring. Its pleasantness is its undoing.

Light-hearted, enjoyable caper flick that gets good mileage from both its stunning locations and its equally stunning cast.
