    A group of college-age buddies struggle with their imminent passage into adulthood in 1959 Baltimore.

    Diner really is a great great film. It’s also an introduction to a lot of young actors who would become stars later in the decade. We have a very softly spoken Mickey Rourke, Steve Gutenberg, Ellen Barkin, Daniel Stern and Kevin Bacon. 
    The story is about a group of friends who are on the verge of losing their freedom…

    After seeing countless reviews on here giving this film a good bashing, I went in expecting a film as bad as Green Lantern. This film isn’t anything like that, in fact it’s a lot of fun. I got a very distinct Richard Donner vibe from this it, it  reminded me a lot of the original Superman film. Nothing too serious and a little goofy. Something that coming after this year has been, is greatly appreciated by me. Of course…
