When [Forster and Wahlberg each] turned out to be acquainted with a lady of the evening whose real job is dispensing spiritual and financial wisdom, the cliches were too blinding for me to overlook.

Stilted, bland and two-dimensional.

While this may not be a diamond-in-the-rough, it's certainly better than cubic zirconium - it's a likeable film that fizzles at the end.

The film means well but lacks punch, edginess or anything else that would make it memorable.

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

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.

The line between positive senior characters and irritating grotesqueries makes the proceedings first unpleasant and then insufferable.

Sacrificing excellent characters to an ultimately lame payoff, Diamond Men's potential as a diamond in the rough turn out to be more 'rough' than 'diamond.'
April 16, 2003
A mildly pleasant film with two charming leads.

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.

...a lost classic, a beautiful miniature evocation of a unconventional, minor-key way of life.

The movie is warmed by a fine sense of place and the lovingly elaborated detail of the salesman's life.

Genuine, amusing and, best of all, humanly scaled and humanely oriented.
