Diner (1982) - ickleReview (TV)

Barry Levinson writes and directs a period study of the late 50s/early 60s. A group of friends meet in a diner. Some of them are getting married or are talking about it. They banter about women, betting, music, football, and their peculiar habits. Features some great old 50s cars, a classic soundtrack, some brilliant lines, and a warm rapport between the cast, which features Kevin Bacon, Mickey Rourke, Steve Guttenberg, and Daniel Stern (one of the burglars from Home Alone (1990)).

Nugget: a light-hearted study of early 60s anxieties. The best line in the film is "I'll hit you so hard, I'll kill your whole family."
