Raymond Babbitt reminds me of Forrest Gump, If Forrest Gump had the brains. The story is about a young man finds out he has an autistic older brother and takes him on a cross-country journey that will affect both of them. Tom cruise and Dustin Hoffman worked together well in this movie, because I like they back and forward talk. The directing was good and the writing was good too.

Over-rated "worthy" Hollywood project in which everyone involved clearly had one eye on the Oscars. For me it is all a little contrived and unconvincing; I never forget that Raymond is just Dustin Hoffman acting and Tom Cruise is just, well, Tom Cruise. It does have moments of comic charm though.

The understated and skillful direction by Barry Levinson allows for the great performances from Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise (not as heralded as Hoffman, but still one of his best performances, also) to shien through. A heartwarming portrait of two estranged brothers growing back together.

Rain Man review

A film similar to Easy Rider in terms of traveling as a pair. Reviewing this again to improve this reviewers rating. I remember being truly moved by this brotherly relationship of autistic Raymond (Dustin Hoffman) and self centered manipulative Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise). There maybe times when you feel the screenplay can be a bit iffy, the performances of the two leads however relinquishes any doubts or flaws. Its aim was clear and the portrayal of Hoffman was deservedly rewarded while the underrated performance of Cruise was authentically electrifying with meaty roles that made him a blockbuster sensation. Showing classic films on the tube was a nice homage. Rain Man is a powerful film about transformation, making up for lost time, choices, compassion and change.

Rain Man


“Rain Man” starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman was a great movie. Tom Cruise played Charlie Babbit and Dustin Hoffman plays Raymond who in the movie has Autism. In the movie, there are many instances where Dustin Hoffman’s character Raymond portrays Autism characteristics. One particular scene at the airport touched me. Charlie wanted to get Raymond to fly because he was so determined to get the million dollars that his father left in his will for Raymond. Raymond did not want to go on the plane because he was afraid the plane was going to crash. Charlie then tried to convince Raymond to get on the plane Quantas because he said “they never crashed”. Raymond had a meltdown at the terminal. This finally led Charlie to decide to drive instead. Raymond also did not want to drive on a...

Definitely #48 on my lsit.. Definitely #48

"Rain Man" is a magnificent film with absolutely riveting performances from its two stars Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise.Hoffman plays Raymond an autistic adult who has been institutionalized since his youth. Cruise plays Charley a small time hustler who upon his father's death, finds out that unknown to him, he has a brother (Hoffman) that he knew nothing about.Hoffman reportedly researched his character by spending time with autistic patients, prior to the filming. The results are amazing. He has all of the mannerisms and habits of an autistic person down pat. You actually believe he is autistic he is so convincing. He richly deserved the Academy Award that he won for his performance.Cruise, because of his pretty boy image, is not given the credit that he is due as an actor. In "Rain Man...
