DINER MOVIE

Customer Reviews

Top Customer Reviews

Format: DVD
I have a lot of affection for this movie, not least because I was born and raised in Baltimore - although I was slightly younger in 1959 and lived on the other side of town. Baltimore is as much a character as any of the actors and the film lovingly recreates the city as I remember it.
Diner is about a bunch of guys who are never happier than when hanging out at the wonderfully nostalgic diner of the title. The emphasis is on atmosphere and character more than plot, although there are several memorable set pieces - most enjoyably in the cinema when Mickey Rourke's date finds a surprise in the popcorn.
The cast - the heart and soul of the film - are universally strong, except for Kevin Bacon's period lapses of overacting. The dialogue seems natural and occasionally improvised - especially Paul Reiser's, whose character unfortunately gets lost in the middle of the film. The female characters are more basic and less deep, but then this is really a film about the guys. And their camaraderie - which developed during rehearsals and filming - is the major charm and attraction of Diner.
I love the film, but then I'm from Baltimore. But it must have universal appeal because my English wife also loves it and she's only been to Charm City once. It's a great film that rewards repeated viewings. For me, the only downside is the sight of the Little Tavern and the knowledge that those gorgeous little burgers are now extinct.

Picked this up recently without bothering to check how it was on other regions, wish I had now! Be aware that the British disc is not 1.85:1, even though it claims to be on the packaging - it's a 4:3 transfer, although it appears to be open matte, so looks better if you zoom in on a 16:9 TV. It also has zero extras, unlike the American and Australian disc, so fairly poor show Warner!

A Brilliant and Funny story of what happens to Friends when they are just beyond the point of "Coming of Age" and how their lives go when they are just hitting Adulthood.Diner has so many Actors who would go on to Big careers and the Script is Really Funny.

Diner is an entertaining 80's movie from Barry Levinson. It could just as easily have been a stage play (in fact might have been for all I know). The cast were all relative unknowns at the time, but such was the impact and cult following achieved by this film that many of them went on to much bigger things, for a while at least.
It's interesting to see the likes of Steve Guttenberg, Mickey Rourke, Kevin Bacon, Daniel Stern and Ellen Barkin cutting their teeth as young wannabee film stars. And surprisingly it's the likes of Guttenberg who shine more than say Bacon. But a few poor career moves is all it takes to disappear off the Hollywood radar. Guttenberg and Rourke made plenty, Bacon few. At least Rourke is back now.
On the whole Diner is a film with very little action (or plot) but the dialogue sparkles even if some of it has dated a little, and the acting feels extremely natural as if the cast genuinely bonded whilst filming.
A good reflective piece of entertainment, but more for curiosity than out and out entertainment.

This film is perfect for anyone who is not bothered about story but enjoys watching characters develop. Not much of the film is actually based in the diner, the more entertaining scenes taking place outside of this setting. A great 50s soundtrack and nice to see young actors starting out before going on to make commercial hits.

Nice film about young male angst - unpolished and unhurried. Not on the very top of my favorites list, but a pleasure to watch.
