Unappealing characters and a dumb story. Skip it.

...a fluffy time-killer.

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.

Behind the curve.

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.

March 5, 2005
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.

That's when most of us sleep.

They forgot the "r" in "caper"

Devoid of a clever script and truly charismatic chemistry, it plays out as one big, glossy yawn.
December 4, 2004
All polish trying to cover up an unsanded surface.

...[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.

November 21, 2004
Every bit as easygoing as its tropical island setting, and every bit as uninspired and uninspiring. Its pleasantness is its undoing.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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