Slow-witted Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) has never thought of himself as disadvantaged, and thanks to his supportive mother (Sally Field), he leads anything but a restricted life. Whether dominating on the gridiron as a college football star, fighting in Vietnam or captaining a shrimp boat, Forrest inspires people with his childlike optimism. But one person Forrest cares about most may be the most difficult to save -- his childhood love, the sweet but troubled Jenny (Robin Wright).
This movie was in each and every way magnificent! The way it could bring so many emotions to you in just one movie it was fantastic. I cried, I laughed, I smiled. Just amazing! This movie also brought such amazing messages and qualities to you.
Forrest Gump is a mentally challenged well-meaning man... Who by a series of unending improbable coincidences ends up becoming an extremely famous and rich man... And as part of the film's sentimental tone... Remains humble throughout the entirety of his life.
Nearly every scene of this movie contains memorable cinematography, dialogue, and acting... But the absurdly impeccable character of Forrest seems to just serve as a harbinger of its feel-good bittersweet story... Like something out of a Disney story.
Tom Hanks does provide an exceptional performance in this film and handles every scene with unmatched professionalism. He really is what gives this film life.
This is a fantastic movie, moving and educational this deserves to be on everyone's top 10. There is no violence, but some of the main characters die and this is very sad. There is some minor language such as sh-t and 1 instance of F--K YEAH!!! Jenny works as a stripper at one point and has sex with forrest, but you don't see anything. This still to this day is a firm family favorite.
