Critic Reviews of "Diner"Chicago ReaderJune 02, 2014
Levinson's dialogue feels fresh and improvised, yet it hits its mark every time, and the performances he gets are complex and original.TIME MagazineJune 02, 2014
The film is wonderfully cast and played.VarietyJune 26, 2008
For all his painstaking accuracy, Levinson has also concocted a dark and depressing period story devoid of a single person without a major problem or character flaw.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Not a lot to it, but the sense of period is acute, the script witty without falling into the crude pitfalls that beset other adolescent comedies, and the performances are spot-on.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
Diner is often a very funny movie, although I laughed most freely not at the sexual pranks but at the movie's accurate ear, as it reproduced dialogue with great comic accuracy.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Movies like Diner -- fresh, well-acted and energetic American movies by new directors with the courage of their convictions -- are an endangered species.CinemaniaJanuary 10, 2016
The male quintet of friends is amusingly lampooned in Levinson's clever and cutting script, a refreshingly honest depiction of an era often bathed in sepia-toned nostalgia.Christian Science MonitorJune 02, 2014
With so much going for it, then, why doesn't 'Diner' emerge as a major statement? Mostly because of the recurring weakness of its screenplay.Film4June 02, 2014
Though nothing much happens this is a skilfully written comedy-drama that plays close attention to character and boasts fine performances by a quality cast.Radio TimesJune 02, 2014
This gentle, warm-hearted comedy drama about a group of young men in 1950s Baltimore was director Barry Levinson's debut feature and it remains among his finest work.People MagazineJune 02, 2014
All the performances are remarkable. Rourke won't stay unknown for long. But the ultimate triumph is Levinson's. He captures both the surface and the soul of an era with candor and precision.Old School ReviewsMay 20, 2012
not a great film, but it certainly is memorable
