Review

A completely delightful movie . . . Kathryn Hahn is absolutely spectacular and amazing. --Vanity Fair

One of the unexpected highlights of this year s Sundance Film Festival. --IndieWire

A pitch-perfect study of love and family in the Peter Pan Generation. --Spin

Product Description

A provocative comedy about sex, marriage and finding yourself again, AFTERNOON DELIGHT follows Rachel (Kathryn Hahn, Step Brothers, We re the Millers), a quick-witted, yet tightly-coiled, thirty-something bored with her daily routine of preschool auctions and a lackluster sex life and career that has gone kaput. Looking to spice-up her marriage, Rachel takes her husband Jeff (Josh Radnor, How I Met Your Mother, Liberal Arts) to a strip club and meets McKenna (Juno Temple, Killer Joe, The Dark Knight Rises), a stripper she becomes obsessed with saving. Rachel adopts McKenna as her live-in nanny, wreaking havoc on her friends, family and herself.

Special Features:

Behind-the-Scenes; Audio Commentary with Director and Kathryn Hahn

4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected February 22, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The trailers represent this as a kind of light-hearted romantic comedy, but it isn't. As so often in Juno Temple movies, the script doesn't fit a neat category. Some spoilers follow.

Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) is a well-to-do suburban mother with a committed upright husband (hardly perfect, but who is?), a bright and healthy pre-school son, and a beautiful house in a nice neighborhood. She is acutely aware intellectually that her problems are First World ones. This intellectual awareness of her advantages doesn't prevent her from being unhappy anyway. "Is that all there is?" (to steal a line from Peggy Lee) is the gist of it. Despite the trailer's strong implication that Rachel's husband Jeff (Josh Radnor) is the one who is disinterested, it is Rachel who has deflected sex for the past six months; she would like to feel amorous, she tells her therapist (Jane Lynch), but she doesn't have any enthusiasm for it.

On the advice of her girlfriends, Rachel takes her husband to a strip club, where he buys her a private lap dance from a free-spirited dancer/hooker named McKenna (Juno Temple). Later, Rachel encounters McKenna outside the club at a coffee vendor. Unlike Rachel, McKenna seems quite happy with her life. When McKenna needs a new place to stay, Rachel invites her into her home as a nanny despite the reservations of Jeff; she claims she wants to help McKenna, even though Rachel is the one who is discontent. McKenna still services her favorite tricks on the side. Rachel accompanies McKenna on one occasion when she visits an older client (if not outright ugly, certainly unattractive) who likes it when someone watches - creepy as this sounds, in context the fellow is surprisingly gentlemanly about the whole thing. Rachel is very disturbed by the experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars The characters pulled me in . . . March 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed "Afternoon Delight." It is NOT a comedy . . . I live in SoCal and know the types of people portrayed in the film. The message I got was that it's easy to take a good life and the people in it for granted. The actors were excellent. Well done.

2.0 out of 5 stars 'Afternoon Delight' far from captivating... February 25, 2014
Format:DVD
Jill Soloway, who has previously written for and served as a produced for shows that include Six Feet Under and How to Make It in America, pens and directs Afternoon Delight. The film stars Kathryn Hahn as Rachel, a mother of one that spends her days either at home, planning preschool activities, and with a therapist, Lenore (Jane Lynch) - talking about her sexless marriage.

Rachel is married to Jeff (Josh Radnor), and the couple's obvious comfort level has led to a stale marriage to the extent that neither of them appears to be overly happy. In order to spice things up, Rachel takes the advice of her close friend, Stephanie (Jessica St. Clair), to take her husband to a local strip club.

At the club, Jeff buys Rachel a lap dance from a stripper, named McKenna (Juno Temple). Rachel is quickly intrigued by McKenna's choice in lifestyle and repeatedly uses her love for coffee as an excuse to keep bumping into her on the street. As it just so happens, McKenna finds herself in a bind without a place to live. Naturally, Rachel thinks it's a good idea for McKenna to stay with her and Jeff - and also serve as their live-in "babysitter."

The more information Rachel learns about McKenna, the more she's intrigued by what she discovers about her. It turns out that not only does McKenna dance at the club, but she also serves as a "sex worker" - in other words, a call girl. Even though the news is shocking at first, it's still an element of excitement that Rachel decides to incorporate into her life. But, it turns out that McKenna's "free" lifestyle doesn't translate very well to the suburban household of a married couple with a child - or to the lives of their neighboring friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than I expected February 23, 2014
By G.R.K.
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This doesn't get the greatest reviews here or on Rotten Tomatoes, but I liked it. I thought it had that "indie feel" to it. Kathryn Hahn is a talented actress and she gets across that Rachel is a bored housewife, disenchanted with the dream of being a wife and a mom. She seems a stranger in a strange land. The message of "you don't know what you got till it's gone" comes through loud and clear, without having it spoon fed to you. My one complaint is that the movie suffers from some bad editing as some scenes seem a bit long and their length doesn't add to the movie. It's worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars "I use it for networking, I am a sex worker." March 23, 2014

"I use it for networking, I am a sex worker.", March 23, 2014

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Afternoon Delight (Amazon Instant Video)
While this movie is the story of Rachel taking in a stripper, I think the true theme lies in how we identify ourselves. Can a woman be a stripper, a prostitute, in isolation from the rest of her life? McKenna points out doctors and lawyer see their clients all the time. Rachel is intrigued and inevitably wonders if her status of housewife defines her in all of her facets. There is a lot of wry, dark humor in this film, and I enjoyed "everyday people's" struggle to deal with the exotic in their midst. But I am more intrigued how perception can become internalized.
