Don's Plum

Director: R.D. Robb
Year Released: 2001
Rating: 0.5

A group of friends - including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Kevin Connolly and singer-actress Jenny Lewis - hang out at the title all-night restaurant where they "discuss" (or rather, shout about): masturbation, girls being "sluts," body odor, the eating habits of other patrons, trying to get roles in Hollywood and, lastly, trauma in their own lives.  While, as a rule, I'm anti-censorship (except in a few places where discretion is warranted), I can completely understand why both Maguire and DiCaprio would not want this to be shown: it's embarrassing juvenilia with homophobic remarks, aggression against women (Leo threatening to throw a bottle at a young lady), sexism ... and two private admissions at the end (one by Leo, one by Jenny) that are meant to be affecting but amount to zilch.  In the online synopsis it says it was improvised ... then why are there five (!?) screenwriters listed in the credits?  Altogether godawful, but to be fair I'm pretty sure everyone the same age as the cast has said equally dumb and ignorant stuff in his/her own time ... lucky for most of us, it was never recorded.
