Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
Dustin Hoffman was originally supposed to play Charlie, but he wanted to play Raymond. Raymond was also supposed to be mentally disabled, but Hoffman changed it to an autistic savant.
Now it's five and a half weeks and I'm still sitting on four Lamborghinis that can't meet spot emissions standards. Now, how many times you wash out with EPA?
Lenny: Uh, yes sir, they're finally, uh, clearing EPA; uh, just one or two more days.

After Charlie, Raymond and Susanna leave the casino and Raymond is driving along the next road, a police car can be seen in the background holding back traffic.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
