A mofie for a 'wonderful years generation'. Everything is cute and ok. Strong performances, most in the charm side tan in the histrionic one. Guttenberg is excellent, Dan Stern fighting with Barkin over his records, lovable.

Description: A group of buddies hangs out in their neighborhood diner, whiling away the time joshing, bragging, ... Full Descriptionand whining. But beneath the jokes runs a current of fear and disappointment over adulthood. Barry Levinson's (TIN MEN, AVALON) directorial debut chronicles the relationships between a group of friends living in Baltimore in 1959. The uniting factor for this group is their fear of growing up. They spend hour after hour in the local greasy-spoon diner, joking, boasting, bragging, and ultimately escaping reality. Ladies' man Boogie (Mickey Rourke), a hairdresser by day and law student by night, is also in ov ... (more)

100 Great 'Fun' 80s Movies (100 movies items)

"Barry Levinson's directorial debut 'Diner' is one of the great debut features of all time. Featuring a starry cast of then-unknowns including Mickey Rourke, Kevin Bacon, Paul Reiser and even Steve Guttenberg, 'Diner' follows the tragicomic existence of a group of male friends in Baltimore during the Christmas period of 1959. Levinson's characters have all reached crucial turning points in their lives when they need to grow up, yet are unwilling to do so. Instead, they spend their time hanging ou"

Interesting film facts (393 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"

""We all know most marriages depend on a firm grasp of football trivia." Gloriously goofy and immature, bittersweet, and cool. A brilliant screenplay brought to life by a quirky ensemble that delivered on the most important aspect for the film's success: we buy into the friendships up on the screen. This is a hang out film that I still love hanging out with."

"This isn't a copy of Lucas' American Graffiti but still there were something that reminded of it. Script seems pretty same and Mickey Rourke doesn't make a good role regardless in his later career. "
