One Guy's Opinion

A small, quietly effective portrait of male bonding...sharply written, observant, and rather sweet.

Wahlberg shows poignancy, and Forster simply walks through the movie oozing effortless soul.

There's too much genuine affection at work here -- between the salesmen and for them -- to resist.

Pacing and story problems aside, this is as fine a showcase for Forster, Armstrong and Wahlberg as they could want, a real actor's picture.

... yet another variation of the mentor-protege movie -- and one of the best.

Cohen obviously knows the dealings and dangers of the diamond trade, but instead of creating an interesting study of that world, he prefers to venture into the obvious and ridiculous.

It's a little movie with a great big selling point: Robert Forster's subtly nuanced and effortlessly engaging portrayal of Eddie Miller.

Laura Kelly
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The characters lapse into cliche, and the dialogue suffers from a droning malaise.

Extremely likable because it is so specific

Cohen is himself a former 'diamond man,' which is no doubt why this world has been so perfectly realized for the screen.

It's a nice little movie about the friendship of two regular Joes, odd and affecting.

Cohen, who has been in the diamond business, has directed with a sure, non-wasteful hand and with touching empathy for both men.

The kind of keenly observed, artfully crafted, warmly humane movie that keeps us going through the weekly helping of big-screen duds.

The pleasure that these two men share in one another's company, both as characters and performers, radiates through every frame.
