Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Academy Award winner for Best Picture, Best Director Robert Zemeckis, and Best Actor Tom Hanks, this unlikely story of a slow-witted but good-hearted man somehow at the center of the pivotal events of the 20th century is a funny and heartwarming epic. Hanks plays the title character, a shy Southern boy in love with his childhood best friend (Robin Wright) who finds that his ability to run fast takes him places. As an All-Star football player he meets John F. Kennedy; as a soldier in Vietnam he's a war hero; and as a world champion Ping-Pong player he's hailed by Richard Nixon. Becoming a successful shrimp-boat captain, he still yearns for the love of his life, who takes a quite different and much sadder path in life. The visual effects incorporating Hanks into existing newsreel footage is both funny and impressive, but the heart of the film lies in its sweet love story and in the triumphant performance of Hanks as an unassuming soul who savors the most from his life and times. --Robert Lane

I remember it vividly. I sat in our livingroom and started to watch this movie, new to me at the time. The feather appeared and the music began to flow. Immediatly I knew it. I was going to love this movie.

And I was right. During the movie I cried probably seven times, yes really cried, tears ran down from my eyes everytime something remarkable happened. I'm not going to spoil your experience by telling which was the scene I cried most to. I'll only say that they were the tears of joy.

And next Christmas I got this DVD as a present from my parents, relived the magic. This is the movie for me you can't go wrong with, always a good watch.

Extras are very good, done well and are both fun and informative, especially if you are interested in the movie-making -process.

The Oscar-shower was well deserved, Tom Hanks is at his best here, for example. He makes Forrest very human and loveable. The one who truly shines to me here is Gary Sinise's Lt. Dan. Great and moving work!

Recommended for all you movie-lovers out there! <3 <3 <3

Two people, Forrest Gump and Jenny Curran, form an unbreakable bond as children. Forrest, although lacking in the brains department, manages to witness and play his part in some of the greatest events in American history. He meets JFK, wins the Medal of Honor in Vietnam, and manages to accidentally start the Watergate investigation. Forrest lives the American dream whereas Jenny lives the American nightmare; she has an abusive father and grows up to have a string of abusive boyfriends, works as a stripper, takes narcotics and ultimately contracts AIDS. Despite the pair going in completely different directions in life, they are still drawn to each other and Forrest and Jenny's story is one that will make you smile, laugh and shed a tear.

Every once and while, you see lists of the worst films to win Best Picture Oscars, and usually Forrest Gump makes that list. I think the reason for this is that we live in quite a cynical world and the majority of people do not really warm to lead characters that are innocent and pure of heart. This should not be the case. We should adore characters that are completely honest and very insightful despite their low IQs, and Forrest Gump is one of those characters that we should love. People who watch this film should check their cynicism at the door and just enjoy a film that is about the everyman battling the world using only truth and a deep-seated sense of what he believes is right. After all, this film has a noble tradition, it follows in the footsteps of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and It's A Wonderful Life. If Frank Capra were alive today, he would make films like Forrest Gump (if he could come to grips with all the CGI) and that's all I have to say about that...

a special guy sits on a bench and tells anyone who will listen about his story book adventure style life.it stars tom hanks.he is abselutely hilarious while simaltaneously being simple and blissfully unaware.the kids can watch it but they should really not look when jennys around.shes a whore and a half.it is easily the best tom hanks movie ever made.this movie is for everybody.if you do not like this movie you need help because something is seriously wrong with you.it is a very emotional movie from watchimg gump struggle to walk as a child up to when his loved ones began dying.if you are the sensitive type,do not forget to take your prozac or youll ball your eyes out.the only chick in it is jenny.she toys with forrests emotions throughout the entire movie and puts out at least 9 or 10 times.there are a lot of people who play thier roles well here.most everbody does well.its one of those movies you have to watch on tape because it never stops being good long enough to stop for a snack or a bathroom break.its that good!if a second one were somehow dreamt up it would be only a shadow of its predecesser.it is long,but an abselute gem in any video library.

Forrest Gump. I could name a million reasons why this movie is considered one of the best. Could it be because of the storyline? The fact that is was wonderfully written? Or could it be because Robert Zemeckis managed to get the crowd really thinking, "is that President J.F.K?". Whatever reason it is, it has definately got me hooked on this movie for life.
Directed by Robert Zemeckis (who also directed the movie "Contact"), it is set in Alabama where it focuses on a very special boy, a boy who has many changes to come. His name is Forrest Gump (played by Michael Conner Humphreys). At first, Forrest had to wear leg braces to straighten out his back. But what the eyes of the other kids saw in Forrest was just a "retard" except for one, who could see right through Forrest Gump and see just another kid trying to live. This one went by the name of Jenny Curran (Hanna R. Hall), who would soon become Forrest "very best friend". The movie starts from scratch, where Forrest is a kid right until the time he is a grown man. Forrest soon goes to College, graduates, enters the Army, where he meets his two other best friends (Ben Bufford 'Bubba' Blue, played by Mykelti Williamson, and Lt. Dan Taylor, played by Gary Sinise), owns a shrimp company, becomes a table-tennis professional, becomes a war hero and soon marries Jenny. All this happened because Forrest believed he could make it happen.
To me, Forrest Gump is the story about survival and belief. To believe in yourself, believing you can achieve anything you want to achieve if you try. To achieve goals, you must set them out but Forrest never set his goals out, he just made them happen which is another reason why this is one of the best films ever made.
