A sub-par effort in family drama with Kirk Douglas barely registering above his usual excellence

Douglas struggles honorably with his stoke-impaired speech and a shoddy story.

[Not] a work of art, or even entertainment, but the filmic commensurate of a crippled panhandler using his handicap to beg for sympathy and change on a streetcorner.

I have to admit I shed some sentimental tears during the movie, so it's not really very bad at all, but it could have used a script polish.

It's a male-bonding road movie that veers off a weary course filled with dreary clichés on the way to a possible treasure in diamonds. The trip is barely worth it.

Diamonds can be proud of its achievement as the ultimate primer on elderly embarrassments and the best ways to exploit them.

Corny dialogue and a contrived plot.

The tag line for Diamonds promises that 'searching for buried treasure was never this much fun.' Replace 'much fun' with 'dull' and that marketing slogan suddenly gains a lot of truth.

Sadly, Kirk Douglas' real-life stroke is the most compelling ingredient in Miramax's new cobbled-together caper flick.

Even in his prime, Douglas couldn't have saved himself from this cliche-ridden script.

Wince-inducing dialogue.

Unless you've just GOT to see what is most likely to be Kirk Douglas's last movie, there's really no reason to see this at all.
