Afternoon Delight Reviews

February 2, 2017
As a first film, Afternoon Delight is worth exploring -- perhaps mostly to see what film Soloway does next.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 28, 2016
No longer the hilarious side role, Soloway gives Hahn an opportunity to star. She, in turn, proves ready and deserving of the challenge.
Full Review | Original Score: B
November 30, 2015
...a decent drama that isn't, in the end, able to reach the heights that writer/director Jill Soloway is clearly aiming for.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
November 6, 2014
As Rachel enters her late-30s wilderness, Hahn only gets better.
Full Review | Original Score: 6
August 18, 2014
Kathryn Hahn is outstanding as the unraveling Rachel ... capable of significantly more depth than she's had the chance to display in her regular goofball comedy roles.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
March 30, 2014
Relaxed, intuitive performances from the top-notch ensemble cast pay dividends, with Hahn commandingly stressy in the central role, and Michaela Watkins impressively abrasive as neighbourhood organiser-in-chief.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 28, 2014
[Soloway] delves fearlessly into raw, intimate and uncomfortable areas that more conventional comedies would avoid like the plague.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 28, 2014
Tension dissolves towards the end but Jane Lynch's turn (as Rachel's pompous, self-referential shrink) never gets old.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 28, 2014
There are some very dark corners in this cheeky comedy, which explores relationships and sexuality in unusually realistic ways.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
March 27, 2014
The cast is uniformly excellent, but special mention is due to Jane Lynch as a narcissistic therapist with distracting glasses.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 27, 2014
Occupies much the same space as the films of director Nicole Holofcener and does so pretty well.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 27, 2014
An enjoyable romantic drama with refreshingly interesting female characters and a duo of impressive performances from Kathryn Hahn and Juno Temple.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 24, 2014
Soloway spikes the clichés with refreshingly rude humour, steadily darkens the mood and gets gold from her lead: her face a rubbery miracle of expressive range, Hahn laces every dramatic/comic beat with the zing and sting of truth.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 24, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 19, 2014
Love, happiness, and finding peace take a little time. Afternoon Delight captures these feelings in the most sincere way possible.
February 5, 2014
Soloway has staked her claim on edgy urban female neuroticism; more importantly, she's advanced Hahn's career.
February 4, 2014
Soloway teases rather than fully develops several different fascinating ideas in Afternoon Delight and while the flick doesn't ultimately cohere into a wholly satisfying single entity it's still an incredibly compelling experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 14, 2013
There's a delicious discomfort in watching a funny person deliberately not being funny - think Jerry Lewis in "King of Comedy" - that gives "Afternoon Delight" an agreeably tart flavor.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Afternoon Delight is the pitch-perfect morning, afternoon or evening viewing for any stay-at-home-mum who gets the 'grass is always greener' speech from her working sisters.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
October 3, 2013
this is a role-swap dramedy, wherein two very different walks of life are brought under the same roof in a social experiment that sees generations gel, classes clash, and sexualities merge... too coarse and cruel to be dismissed as frothy romcom.
