The story doesn't hold together, but Hahn and Temple are terrific.

It's refreshing to hear dialogue that's natural and modern and doesn't try to pontificate. And the rewards are many.

"Afternoon Delight" puts the typical suburban mother's lifestyle under an uncomfortably honest microscope, then documents the sporadically funny and occasionally sad results.

No longer the hilarious side role, Soloway gives Hahn an opportunity to star. She, in turn, proves ready and deserving of the challenge.

The cure for the common marriage. Good Film! Afternoon Delight plays a bit like a Judd Apatow flick, from a female perspective. This is a perfect example of a… More

Afternoon Delight is a 'day in the life' kind of story of a mother played by Kathryn Hahn. She's typically known for her comedy, but like most… More
