I watched this movie on Netflix.

I've heard about this 'legendary' movie for years, but never really had the chance to see it. In fact, I didn't realise it was as old as it was and thought it was more of a mid 90's film.

Finally going into it, I found it to be as delightful and good as I had heard. And Dustin Hoffman's performance was spot on. I myself have an autistic nephew, and how Hoffman plays the part is similar in many ways. Grade A performance for sure.

And this early Tom Cruise was good also. Not quite as polished as he is in later years, but still has that youthfulness to him. Over all, I really enjoyed this film and the emotional parts did get to me.

Mistake Status: Only really caught one during my viewing. Not sure I'll go back.

More quotes from Rain Man

Trivia: Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise spent a lot of time with a man and his autistic brother, whom the man took care of much like the way Charlie has to take care of Raymond. A lot of the things Cruise and Hoffman did in the movie were things they witnessed the two brothers doing. One example of this was when Raymond and Charlie lean their heads against each other's at the end. Had Cruise and Hoffman not seen the brothers do that, it never would have been in the movie.

Question: When Ray and Charlie are in the bathroom, they sing part of a song. What is the song they sing?

Answer: It's "I Saw Her Standing There," written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, released November 1974. In addition to the Beatles, the song has been covered by Elton John, The Grateful Dead, Tiffany, and many others I'm sure.
