REVIEWS

Review by Anonymous (posted on 5-May-2007)

I happened to catch this film on a late night, At first I didn't know watch to expect, and herd alot about it. Soon I realized that this is a great flick. Dustin Hoffman is amazing as Autistic savant Raymond Babbitt, and I consider this to be he's greatest performances to date. Tom Cruise was also great to as Raymond younger jerk of a brother car salesman Charlie Babbitt, I'm not a Tom Cruise fan, but I thought his performance was awesome. The part where Charlie tells Raymond that he loves having him a his big brother, and they but their head together for a long time, makes my water all the time. I recommand this movie to anyone of all ages.
