Movie Info

Eddie Miller (Robert Forster) has spent his life traversing the roads of Pennsylvania, selling diamonds and jewelry to small shops. After a heart attack makes him an insurance risk, his company informs Eddie that it's time he trains his replacement, Bobby Walker (Donnie Wahlberg), a coarse, brash young man with no sales experience. Despite their differences, the two become friends, and Bobby introduces Eddie to Tina (Jasmine Guy), a madam with a rough exterior but a heart of gold.

Audience Reviews for Diamond Men

  • Mar 11, 2012
    Robert Forster's subtle "nice guy" performance in "Diamond Men" is one of the main reasons to watch the film, if not the only reason. Donnie Wahlberg is likable in his supporting role and the script offers some fine twists, but there is nothing here that engages or involves viewer. Cohen's direction and script hold up for the most part, but neither is very solid.

    A little uneven in tone and pace, but made largely enjoyable by a well written script and Robert Forster.

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Diamond Men", Eddie Miller(Robert Forster) has been a traveling diamond salesman for the past thirty years in central Pennsylvania but because of a recent heart attack, he cannot be insured anymore. The only chance he has to keep his job is to train his successor, Bobby Walker(Donnie Wahlberg), a brash newcomer, whose only experience is maintaining vending machines.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Diamond Men" is a modest slice-of-life movie that is as much about respecting the traditions of the past and small towns, as it is about not fearing what will come next. And it is helped enormously by a splendid performance by Robert Forster. But I don't know how I feel about the ending.[/font]
