Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump is a 1994 American romantic drama film based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Winston Groom. The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis and stars Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson, and Sally Field. The story depicts several decades in the life of its titular character (Hanks), a slow-witted but kind-hearted, good-natured and athletically prodigious man from Alabama. Gump witnesses, and in some cases influences, some of the defining events of the latter half of the 20th century in the United States, specifically the period between his birth in 1944 and 1982. The film differs substantially from Winston Groom's novel, including Gump's personality and several events that were depicted.

"Life is like a box of chocolates" and "Run Forest run" are probably some of the most identifiable quotes ever.

Forrest Gump an age old timeless classic friendship,commitment,loyalty, and love.I love the way they culminate past activities and events through Mr.Gumps' life. His child-like innocence and naivety are heart warming. As a woman the love he had for Jenny, well what woman would not want that type love and devotion in their lives? And lets face it the man was accidentally the richest man not to shabby.

Did you know that the Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant is based off of the Forrest Gump movie? This particular one in Orlando did not have the best hostess service (we had to wait twice for a table), but in general, they all have great food, and the servers ask trivia questions from the movie during dinner.
