Reviews
Mine: Enjoyable period piece. Nice work by DeVito. Watch for The Fine Young Cannibals in the bar scene.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Writer-director Levinson returns to DINER territory (literally--it's set in 1963 Baltimore) for a melancholy comedy-drama about a hustler (Dreyfuss) and a loser (DeVito), both in the aluminum-siding business, whose lives converge after their cars meet in an accident. Some fine comedy and pointed observations on human nature are undermined by unresolved ideas and inconsistencies in the way the characters behave. Stand-up comic Gayle is hilarious as DeVito's partner, who has Bonanza on the brain.
