YMMV: Rain Man
- Crowning Music of Awesome: The soundtrack is full of it, some of which is still fun to listen to. "Iko Iko" (by the Belle Stars) and "Las Vegas" are standouts.
- Glurge: Despite the general positive reception of the movie and awesome acting on the part of Dustin Hoffman, for many autistic people, the movie's much more Glurge then anything else. The simplistic portrayal of autism in the movie, and the way it's used as a plot device to teach the "neurotypical" protagonist not to be a Jerk Ass, make it guaranteed Flame Bait on many autistic support forums.
- So Okay, It's Average: Perhaps due to Autism being better-known these days, some people find the movie pretty unremarkable despite the hype.
