Queer cure for marital doldrums
26 August 2015 | by tigerfish50See all my reviews

'Afternoon Delight' pretends to push the envelope, but it's just another lightweight Indie comedy-drama with a fickle plot. The story relates how a frustrated LA housewife called Rachel visits a strip club with her husband in order to revive their sexually comatose marriage. A lap dance from a stripper somehow provokes Rachel to hire the girl as a live-in nanny for her young son. This foolish decision is clearly driven by latent desire for the dancer, but the film doesn't develop the idea with any serious intent.

The stripper turns out to be a decent nanny, but the new domestic arrangement leads to some awkward situations. After Rachel chooses to accompany her stripper/nanny on a call-girl appointment, she becomes hostile to the girl and the dynamic changes. The script choices remain consistently capricious throughout, exemplified by the meltdown of Rachel's therapist, who suddenly confides her lesbian relationship has broken up, and starts weeping about it during a session - and once again there is no follow-up. Eventually Rachel and her husband get down to business in the bedroom without needing to address any of their problems - so there's that.
