Don's Plum is a 2001 low-budget black and white drama film directed by R. D. Robb. Robb co-wrote it with Bethany Ashton, Tawd Hackman, David Stutman, and Dale Wheatley. The film features Leonardo DiCaprio as a homeless man, Kevin Connolly as a motivational speaker, and Tobey Maguire who makes "Yo' Momma" jokes while hanging out in a Los Angeles diner. It was filmed in 1995–96.

It was later agreed between DiCaprio, Maguire, Stutman, Wheatley and Jerry Meadors that the film would be released outside the US and Canada only. It premiered on February 10, 2001, in Berlin, Germany. Time Out New York writer Mike D'Angelo called it, "the best film [I saw] in Berlin".[1] Variety Magazine called it an "unpleasant and tedious ensemble."[2]

Blake Sennett of Rilo Kiley provided the soundtrack for the film. His bandmate Jenny Lewis has a role as Sara.
