While Devito's name may be slightly jaded these days as he hasn't put out any spectacular films lately, The Rainmaker is one film that just does an amazing job from start to finish.
Damon plays Rudy Baylor, a Memphis St. Law School graduate who can't seem to find a job anywhere, until he meets "Bruiser" Stone (Mickey Rourke). Stone is an ambulance chaser, who does whatever it takes, legal or not, to win a case. Rudy, as most law students are when they graduate, wan...
