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.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the restaurant where Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman are trying to order breakfast, Hoffman's character fixes the salt and pepper shaker a certain way. In the next shot they are opposite the way he fixed them. Then in the next shot they are back to the way he had fixed them. (00:37:15)

Trivia: When this movie gave a test screening, it got terrible reactions from the audience, mostly because of the ending. One even went so far to say that he was mad Raymond didn't "snap out of it" at the end.

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 1963. In addition to the Beatles, the song has been covered by Elton John, The Grateful Dead, Tiffany, and many others I'm sure.

In December 1963, Capitol Records released the song in the United States as the B-side on the label's first single by the Beatles, "I Want to Hold Your Hand."
