Victor is a cook who works in a greasy bar/restaurant owned by his mother, Dolly. It's just the two of them, a waitress named Delores, and a heavy drinking regular, Leo. But things change when Callie, a beautiful college drop-out, shows up as a new waitress and steals Victor's heart. But Victor is too shy to do anything about it, and too self-consciously overweight to dream of winning Callie away from her demanding boyfriend, Jeff. Victor's terrible loneliness overwhelms him when he has to face losing what he loves the most.Written by

Victor is walking across a bridge toward the camera with a bag of groceries in one arm and just before he stops to look over the side, a fuzzy mike cover can be seen briefly in the bottom left corner of the shot. See more »
Can't you be nicer to her?
Nice? Did you hear what she said to me?
You don't have to be nice... just nicer.

Pruitt Taylor Vince and Liv Tyler..the Romance that never was, but intimated could have been
This is a pleasantly suprising movie that concentrates on the relationships that exist between for central characters that work at a Diner.
Pruuitt Taylor Vince is excellent as Victor the simple son of Dolly (Shelley Winters). One really feels for his character as the movie progresses, particulary with how he struggles to come to grips with his mother's death. Liv Tyler (Callie) is something special, she has a sweet innocence and beauty that makes her character so vulnerable and likeable. The movie hints at the possibility of romance between Callie and Victor, but it never does eventuate.
Debbie Harry is perfect for the role of Delores, the slutty waitress who despises just about everything, particularly Callie.
It's not a blockbuster by any stretch, but its pleasantly suprising without being to HEAVY.
