When the movie can tear itself away from Lola, it's more of a buddy comedy than a heist film, and a bad one at that.

A feature-length travel destination video about how your next Bahamas getaway will leave you feeling like a millionaire.

November 12, 2004
After the Sunset is about as flat-footed a heist caper as I've ever seen: clumsy where it should be graceful, lumpy where it should be sleek.

After the Sunset fizzles so quickly that it's hard to care about the answers to any of the cliched mysteries it attempts to solve.
November 11, 2004

After the Sunset's carat-and-shtick approach is much more decadent than it is delightful.

November 11, 2004
Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek play partners-in-crime in a jewel-heist frolic so stale it feels like a retread of a retread.

November 9, 2004
A film of small moments and big laughs.

November 9, 2004
To pass the time between the product placements, director Brett Ratner tries to squeeze chuckles out of gay-panic set pieces, the quaint antics of colorful natives, and Woody Harrelson's surreal miscasting as the FBI agent.
November 8, 2004
While After the Sunset is never exactly dull and is smartly cut to a brief running time, it never quickens the pulse.
November 8, 2004
The movie comes off more like a watered-down film version of an Elmore Leonard crime novel set in tropical climes, only without his gritty edge or sagacious take on the human condition.
