Movie Summary

Dan Cohen
Released:

Rating:
R
Diamond Men is an independent movie that debuted at the Hamptons International Film Festival in 2000. The film is a quirky combination of a buddy movie, a road trip movie, and a crime drama. The story begins when Eddie Miller (Robert Forster), a veteran diamond salesman, is taken off the job by his company due to his age. Instead, he's assigned to show the ropes to new salesman Bobby Walker (Donnie Wahlberg). Eddie at first resents and looks down on the brash, loudmouthed, uncultured Bobby, since he's been selling diamonds longer than Bobby has even been alive. However, as the movie progresses, the two men grow to be friends: Bobby teaches the serious, buttoned-down Eddie how to meet girls, loosen up, and have a good time, while Eddie manages to turn Bobby into a little bit more of a professional. However, the plot thickens when these two "diamond men" get mixed up in high-stakes diamond crime.
