Such uninteresting and unlikable characters.
Pleasant vignettes of late 50's Baltimore with some real laughs, though I kept wanting more Paul Reiser on screen.
A slice-of-life-movie set in the late 50s with interesting, realistic characters, on the brink of manhood, chewing the fat while offering glimpses of mild drama, amusing humour and well written dialogue. The young cast are splendid, most of who would go on to bigger things later in their careers. The laid-back style and relaxed atmosphere is one of the movie's strengths, but since this also leads to a lack of stuff happening - it could just as well be seen as a weakness.
