As funny as it is entertaining, this award winning movie from the mind of Robert Zemeckis is an instant classic and must watch for any fan of movies.
Forrest Gump is an innocent man from Alabama. Born with a low IQ, but confidence to spare, Forrest Gump is the story of his more than exceptional life. From his time in Vietnam to his multi national shrimp company, Forrest Gump is anything but ordinary but and seemingly has it all, but all he wants is the long lost love of his childhood sweetheart.
For the longest time, I refused to watch Forrest Gump purely because it was so beloved. I’ve mentioned on a few other posts why this is (The Princess Bride, A Christmas Story, etc.) so I won’t go into it again. I watched this for the first time with my then girlfriend (now fiancé) and one of my best friends in my parent’s basement while we each ate a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. It was such a relaxing evening and again, I’m glad they forced me to watch it because I enjoyed it all the more watching it with them.
Robert Zemeckis, Tom Hanks and Robin Wright are responsible for creating this wonderful movie that everybody should see at least once in their lives. Forrest Gump is currently available to rent on Prime Video ($)
