    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.

    A fascinating, often very moving, frequently funny film.

    Name user

    It's an honorable effort, touched by a certain lightness and grace.

    Name user

    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.

    Name user

    The strength of the film is really that of Cruise's performance, his finest since Risky Business.

    Name user

    Rain Man's restraint is, finally, rather like Raymond's gabble. It discourages connections, keeping you out instead of drawing you in.

    Name user

    Uneven, slightly off-target.

    Name user

    Valeria Golino is appealing as Cruise's girlfriend; Hoffman makes his character pretty believable without milking the part for pathos and tears, and it's nice to see Cruise working for a change in a context that isn't determined by hard sell and hype.

    Name user

    There is no story, no motor, and given the nature of the premise, nothing much can happen.

    Name user

    Its end effect depends largely on one's susceptibility to the sight of an actor acting nonstop and extremely well, but to no particularly urgent dramatic purpose.

    Name user

    Rain Man is so fascinating because it refuses to supply those questions with sentimental but unrealistic answers.

    Name user

    Neither Levinson nor Hoffman was able to penetrate the mystery of their subject.

    Name user

    Rain Man is far from a washout but you can't help feeling all those missed opportunities raining down on you.
