In 1959, a group of college aged friends (Steve Guttenberg, Daniel Stern, Mickey Rourke, Kevin Bacon, Tim Daly, Paul Reiser) return home to Baltimore for a wedding and engage in a series of last ditch antics to stave off their already onset foray into adulthood. Barry Levinson's autobiographical Diner is an unworthy American Graffiti knockoff. It features contrived situations and irritating dialogue, and I'd be interested to hear of a film with a more smarmy, less likable cast.
