Somehow this was on the list of a "must see" movie I never saw. I finally got around to it. i'm guessing it just didn't age well. Of course Dustin Hoffman's performance is great, but the rest? Either as part of some story or just as supporting actor, Tom Cruise's heavy-handed asshole character strains credulity. Every scene is uncomfortable and not because Raymond is autistic, but because Charlie is yelling at Raymond and giving him commands like a bad dog owner.
Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
