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 and whining. But beneath the jokes runs a current of fear and disappointment over adulthood. Barry Levinson's 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.

"First viewing - Mar. 1st I've generally seen good things about Diner, so I've been curious to check it out. It's clearly one of those personal films looking back at one's youth, which means I'm better able to appreciate it now than I might have 20 or more years ago.

It's not a high "
