25 From 82: My Favorite Films Of 1982 (25 movies items)

" As good a movie that Diner is (and believe me, its a damn good movie), it's one of those films that is usually remembered for one particular scene. For those of you who have seen this coming of age "dromedy", you know that the scene that I'm referring to is the one involving the popcorn trick. And for any of you who may be thinking of trying it, lemme just say that I tried that trick with the popcorn once. Turns out, just like in the movie, it doesn't work. Especially if the girl who you tri"

"Most of the scenes at the 1959 Fells Point diner between a group of six high-school graduate friends; the scene of a pre-nuptial 140 question trivia test (65 is passing) about the Baltimore Colts pro football team required by virginal momma's boy Eddie (Steve Guttenberg) for his off-screen fiancee Elyse just before the wedding - friends and family members gather around the basement to keep score where he grills her; and the scene of the debate on the merits of playing either Johnny Mathis or Fra"

"Diner is a sort of poor man's American Graffiti, covering the same dramatic turf but lacking the style, wit and strong narrative structure of its predecessor. - Boxoffice Magazine"

"March 9 "Do you ever get the feeling that there's something going on that we don't know about?" I found this movie at the video store and it looked interesting, so I decided to get it. I thought the dialogue, the time period and the acting was good. It was a bit too long, but I still enjoyed it and it was a good directing debut for Barry Levinson. "

New-to-Me Films of 2013 (520 movies items)

"It's nearly impossible to watch Diner without thinking about George Lucas' American Graffiti; however, I personally prefer the former. It is a sort of coming-of-age film set in the nostalgic 1950's, set up in an episodic narrative, with many overlapping plot points and conflicts. The characters were developed well enough to make this seem like more than just another throwaway comedy. Moreover, it's got some of the most clever, insightful dialogues I've observed in movies lately. It does get a bi"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The diner used in the movie was moved further downtown in Baltimore, and by 2002 was an on-the-job training school for at-risk youth. MGM was reluctant to release the film, which they believed would be a commercial flop. But when they found out that critic Pauline Kael had written a glowing review in the New Yorker, they immediately released it. The answer to one of the College Bowl questions was that the planet Mercury rotates once for every revolution about the sun, which is what astronome"
