Rolling Stone
Isn't much of a movie, but it's worth a look just to see screen legend Kirk Douglas, Michael's eighty-three-year-old father, kick ass.

Diamonds doesn't shine.

Chicago Tribune
Kirk Douglas' performance...is so strong and inspiring it's a shame there isn't a better movie around it.

See this movie for Douglas and Bacall, ignore the dialogue and just bask in their star chemistry, still strong after all these years.

Thanks to (Douglas), Diamonds is quite affecting -- even if it's not a particularly good movie.

USA Today
This road-trip piffle is basically a male version of a chick-bonding flick.

Boston Globe
Sadly unworthy of Douglas.

Entertainment Weekly
This condescending story wastes him (Douglas).

New York Daily News
A depressingly hollow vehicle.

Chicago Sun-Times
A very bad movie and a genuinely moving experience.

Mr. Showbiz
A treacly, ham-fisted, German-American co-production about family ties that should only have been released in the circle of Hell reserved for movie critics.
