A late night-classic...
A strange, very funny and energetic black comedy, After Hours remains
Martin Scorsese's most overlooked work, yet its lurking, outsider
status in the league of this director's films is rather appropriate
given the quirky, offbeat nature of the film itself. Griffin Dunne, who
you may remember as the slowly decomposing best friend in An American
Werewolf in London, is perfectly cast as Paul, a bored word processor
who is lured into the worst night of his life as soon as he and the
beautiful Rosanna Arquette get talking at a caf.
this was a pretty funny movie..from start to finish, follows the
adventures of a word processor after he get's off of work , all he
wants to do is get home,, simple enough right,, wrong,, he loses his 20
dollar bill out the cab window, get's stuck in So Ho. meets up with a
pretty girl, goes back to her place, doesn't find he's getting along
with her,, apparently she kills herself,, he goes to a bar , the
bartender is willing to lend him subway fare to get home,, he can't get
the cash register open , so he exchanges keys with him,, he goes to the
bartender's house to get the keys , where he discovers there is a bunch
of robberies going on in the neighborhood, the neighbors think he is
the robber. and start putting up wanted posters with his picture on it,
now the whole town is in search of him,, so he keeps getting into one
scrape after another, this one is very funny and should not be missed..
