Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
During the shooting of the casino scenes, Dustin Hoffman would go off and play games like blackjack. After production was halted to look for him, someone was assigned to watch him during takes.
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.
Charlie: Three times...
While watching Charlie play blackjack, one of the casino security officers says that "no one can count through a six deck shoe". In fact, this is quite possible for someone with just basic math skills to do using the "hi-lo" counting method. A security officer of any major casino should know this.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
