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.

Beautiful film!By hamburglar (10 reviews) , 19 Mar 2013This film always pops up on lists of the greatest films of all time so I put in on my list and was not disappointed. It is a beautiful film, I forgot how wonderful Tom Cruise is to watch on film. This is a great watch, a beautiful film about how people look at the world differently, highly recommended.
What took me so long....By BillayRambo (8 reviews) , 25 Oct 2012Cannot believe it has taken me so long to watch this amazing film. I have always respected Dustin Hoffman as an actor and this is his finest work. I find Tom Cruise an average actor but the pairing up with Hoffman works brilliantly. A film I could and will watch over and over....I loved it.

My 'special' wee friend.
