Rain Man

Rain Man's a film that's easy enough to be very hard on, as is the common reaction to any film that dares win best picture. Looking at it as just a film though it's just fine as basically a buddy road picture with the gimmick of one of the buddies had autism. However it works well enough largely due to the unrewarded Tom Cruise who carries the film through his depiction of his character's own change of heart through his interactions with Dustin Hoffman's. It has some funny moments, some sweet moments, it works, even if it is not spectacular.
