Underrated Movie #189 ~ Diner

Diner

Buy from Amazon.com

In 1959 Baltimore, former school chums facing adulthood find solace at the local diner, where the banter between groom-to-be Eddie (Steve Guttenberg), best man Billy (Tim Daly), womanizer Boogie (Mickey Rourke), married Shrevie (Daniel Stern) and quirky Modell (Paul Reiser) ranges from girls to growing old. Ellen Barkin and Kevin Bacon co-star in writer-director Barry Levinson’s debut feature, which received an Oscar nod for Best Screenplay. (Netflix) My Rating: 4.5 out of 5. Internet Movie Database

About Underrated Movies
My name is Eric and I created this blog for the simple reason that I love to find hidden gems that go under the radar. So you can get an idea of my tastes, my favorite all-time movies include (among many others) Aliens (plural), Braveheart, The Shawshank Redemption, Field of Dreams, Misery, Mississippi Burning, The Untouchables, Die Hard, and Superman: The Movie. I have a massive list of over 250 underrated, under-appreciated, and/or overlooked movies, and I am always on the lookout for more. I will occasionally update this blog with a new selection. Each entry has links to the Internet Movie Database, a top critic’s review of the movie, Netflix, a link to the trailer, and a link to purchase and/or watch the movie instantly on Amazon. I would earn a small commission if you buy on Amazon after clicking my link, so consider making a purchase if you enjoy this blog.

    Although the plot could have been more elaborated here, I have no idea why this film is so underrated, it is no worse than some other films which people regard pretty good! The cast is great and fun in ‘Diner’ (Mickey Rourke charms, and I am pleased to see young Tim Daly, who I love in ‘Fugitive’ TV Series). Besides, the popcorn scene is just priceless!
