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.

Cohen, who has been in the diamond business, has directed with a sure, non-wasteful hand and with touching empathy for both men.
October 19, 2001
The kind of keenly observed, artfully crafted, warmly humane movie that keeps us going through the weekly helping of big-screen duds.
October 19, 2001
The pleasure that these two men share in one another's company, both as characters and performers, radiates through every frame.
