Diner (1982)

Pocket Review



Diner immediately draws you into a group and a world as if you had always belonged there. After high school, a group of guys continue to meet regularly at their favorite Diner to shoot the shit. They are more comfortable in each other's company than they are with their girlfriends.

The dialog and the acting is very natural and the settings are echt late 50’s. The cast includes some first performances from now veteran character actors: Kevin Bacon, Mickey Rourke, Daniel Stern, and Paul Reiser. There aren’t any false notes in this movie.
