Rain Man review

stars-fourA QUICK Review!  I found a bunch of old movie reviews that I never got around to publishing – they’re old, they’re short, but they get the job done!

Rain Man (1988)

Dustin Hoffman taught us all about where he buys his under wear in Rain Man, the performance that won him the Academy Award.  Tom Cruise portrays Charlie Babbit, a prick with money woes who learns he has a brother (Hoffman) when his father dies and leaves all money to Raymond, an autistic-savant. It’s a road movie with a lot of heart and a great performance by Hoffman, but in some ways, it’s almost a performance seeking a story.  Rain Man isn’t really about the plot, it’s about the characters and their relationships, and sure, this is important in any movie, but you should at least care about what happens in the end…  but whatever, it’s a movie with a ton of montages and good acting, and I recommend it.
