Summary: 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.
Summary: Hoffman plays the autistic Charlie with such a sense of innocence and nonchalant-ness that we feel for his character and want Tom Cruise to burn in hell for what he's doing to his brother. (To be honest, a lot of people want Tom Cruise to burn in hell anyway!
Summary: Following the death of his father arrogant car salesman Charlie Babbitt learns that a 3 million dollar inheritance has been left to a brother he never knew existed. He soon learns that his brother Raymond suffers from severe autism and decides to kidnap him in the hope of receiving as ransom the cash he believes should be his.
Summary: The masterful parts about Rain Man derive from the fact that the movie never tries to be masterful. The situations are realistic, it doesn't paint an overly joyous happy ending and the characters of Dustin Hoffman's 'Raymond' and Tom Cruises 'Charlie' are equally important, relying on each other for gratification rather than playing to the fact that Raymond is in fact autistic, but the The masterful parts about Rain Man derive from the fact that the movie never tries to...
Summary: It was alright. Just a cute story with Dustin Hoffman in a solid role. Just because it is heartfelt and shows a guy grow to like another, that doesn't mean the movie forms a classic sentimental bond. it was too long with blatant dramatic irony. It made me feel bad for the guy and want it turn out well but it was just a simple heart throb.
Summary: 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.
Summary: Rain Man is heartwarming and a sad film. The acting is superb by both Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. The characters validate each other's existances like no other pair in any movie, be it drama, romance or comedy.
Summary: I would assume that because of the film's topic that this could be a tough one to handle. Autism is a touching topic, but it gives us an idea of both character's vulnerability and unstable personality. This is not supposed to be a weepy film, it is a film of beauty and wonder, of the dark and light sides of the human condition.
