Charlie Babbitt's transformation is convincing, Dustin Hoffman is excellent and the chemistry between the brothers is touching. The art direction and music are hella dated but the movie is otherwise timeless.

I must have been about ten or eleven when Rain Man was released and I remember enough about this time that it was seemingly heralded as a modern classic. The fact that it went on to win several oscars - including Best Picture - would further back this up. In hindsight, it's not t...

Cruise and Hoffman are great, and it's their relationship that sets this movie soaring. Of coarse, the beautiful locations and elaborate sceenplay certainly don't hurt.

The best drama movie of 1988! Cruise and Hoffman are perfect together, and the story is awesome, dramatic, sad, and a bit funny too. I highly recommend this movie, it's fantastic.
