PhenominalBy JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 25 Aug 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Probably the best film to come out of the eighties, by far. Although, I am biased. My son is autistic.
When this film was in production both Cruise and Hoffman thought it was no where near good enough to the point Hoffman nearly walked. Fortunately, they stayed. The film picked up 4 Oscars and two Golden Globes among many other awards and nominations and pretty much made Cruise.
Dustin Hoffman's performance as Raymond Babbitt is, bar none, the best acting performance I have ever seen. I have never seen an actor get so deeply immersed in a character than Hoffman does in this film. As for Tom Cruise, his performance as Raymond's childish and hotheaded brother is also worthy of note. To watch his character slowly shed his ignorance throughout the course of the film was indeed a delight.
Dustin plays Raymond 'The Rain Man' Babbitt, the long lost, autistic brother of Charlie Babbitt (Cruise). As Charlie finds out he has a brother never revealed to him by his father he feels let down and betrayed, and even more so that now his father is dead and leaving his estate, to the value of $3,000,000 to his brother, and not to himself. So Charlie decides to take Raymond away from the medical institution he was left in, and goes on a huge road trip, not willing to give his brother up, unless the institutes settles his share of his father's assets.
Quite simply legendary. Fact.

Poor versionBy JOW (17 reviews) from Norwich , 28 Jun 2009Classic film, but no extras and a poor quality picture, so you may as well wait for it to come back on TV again.
good filmBy jaylee (10 reviews) from Oldbury , 22 Jun 2009Was recommended to watch this film by a friend. I enjoyed it but it isnt really my kind of film.
An old clasicBy AlanNotts (5 reviews) from Nottingham , 14 Apr 2009A good film if you want to understand Autistic childen better, I have an autistic 8 year old and can really relate to his film. Worth a look again if you missed the first relese some 20 years ago!
Hoffman at his best!By a customer from Norfolk, England , 13 Apr 2009A truly clever film
Portraying an arrogant (Cruise) who meets his long lost Autistic brother, Hoffman is very good in this film and his portrayal of an autistic person is very realistic and sometimes quite funny!
This film is worth watching
