Not a lot. Townies tend to be a bit more utility oriented, and cruisers a bit more blinged out. Both will give you a very upright riding position, and aren't particularly suited for energetic riding.

What is the difference between a cruiser bike dirt bike and a mountain bike?

A cruiser bike is a bike that gives an upright riding postion, is usually blinged out, and is ridden rather sedately. A dirt bike is something like a cross between a BMX and a MTB. Usually a singlespeed, suspension fork and rugged frame to stand up to jumps and tricks. MTBs are available in several different versions(XC, AM, DH), but basically they're about providing a compromise between ruggedness and rideability.
