Full synopsis:
When car dealer Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) learns that his estranged father has died, he returns home to Cincinnati, where he discovers that he has an autistic older brother named Raymond (Dustin Hoffman) and that his father’s $3 million fortune is being left to the mental institution in which Raymond lives. Motivated by his father’s money, Charlie checks Raymond out of the facility in order to return with him to Los Angeles. The brothers’ cross-country trip ends up changing both their lives.

Scott Nash (Three Movie Buffs) The best films are those that manage to generate emotion in their audience without ever feeling phony or melodramatic. Rain Man does exactly that. Full Review
Desmond Ryan (Philadelphia Inquirer) Everything about the acting and direction of Rain Man is so exquisitely calibrated and so right that it’s all too easy to forget how much could have gone wrong. Full Review
Andrew Collins (Radio Times) While everyone remembers this film about an autistic man as Dustin Hoffman’s Oscar-winning triumph, it is equally Tom Cruise’s. Full Review
Peter Travers (People Magazine) Under Barry Levinson’s astringent direction, Hoffman and Cruise evoke honestly earned emotions. Don’t pass on this wonderfully funny and touching movie. There’s magic in it. Full Review
Candice Russell (South Florida Sun-Sentinel) When the great screen performances of 1988 are considered for Oscar nomination, expect Hoffman’s name on the list. Full Review
Jay Boyar (Orlando Sentinel) A fascinating, often very moving, frequently funny film. Full Review
Dave Kehr (Chicago Tribune) It’s an honorable effort, touched by a certain lightness and grace. Full Review
David Sterritt (Christian Science Monitor) It has a heart as good as Raymond’s own, which is more than a lot of Hollywood movies can say for themselves at the moment. Full Review
Kevin Carr (7M Pictures) powerful and evocative Full Review
Sheila Benson (Los Angeles Times) What no one can argue is that Rain Man is Cruise’s quantum leap, so that it can be said unblushingly that he holds his own with the masterly Hoffman. Full Review
Jamie Graham (Total Film) Of course, it’s annoying. But it’s also funny, touching and true, striking chords without ever reducing Raymond to a performing puppy. Definitely. Full Review
Gene Siskel (Chicago Tribune) The strength of the film is really that of Cruise’s performance, his finest since Risky Business. Full Review
Peter Canavese (Groucho Reviews) There’s something indelible about Rain Man, and not only to those of us who lived through the time when it was a zeitgeist movie. [Blu-ray] Full Review
Jeffrey M. Anderson (Combustible Celluloid) If you can somehow ignore all this hype… then Rain Man works as a kind of small comedy. Full Review
Elliot Panek (Common Sense Media) Story about autistic savant isn’t for kids. Full Review
Rory L. Aronsky (Screen It!) It’s a worthwhile journey in character and scenery… Full Review
Richard Schickel (TIME Magazine) Rain Man’s restraint is, finally, rather like Raymond’s gabble. It discourages connections, keeping you out instead of drawing you in. Full Review
Dennis Schwartz (Ozus’ World Movie Reviews) Delivers plenty of droll humor. Full Review
Lebby Eyre (Film4) A slick, assured, coming-of-age road movie. Full Review
Amy Dawes (Variety) One of the year’s most intriguing film premises is given uneven, slightly off-target treatment in UA’s Rain Man. Full Review
