Product Description

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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...

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.

"Forrest Gump" has to be one of Ton Hanks' best pictures he has ever produced. 1994 was difeinately his best year, when he won back-to-back awards for his role in "Philidelphia" and this. He plays a man, born in a place called Greenbow, Alabama. The film starts off with him sitting on a bench, waiting for a bus to meet his girlfriend. While he waits, he has a nice chat to people who pass by and he tells them about his life. That's when his story begins. Forrest (who he plays) is a very strange person and isn't very smart. But he becomes a war hero, top football player, ping-pong champion, shrimp fisherman and a whole lot more. But he also has deep feelings. He has a special someone that he is deeply in love with. Jenny.
Most of the time, the film concentrates on Forrest and Jenny. It shows how they meet, what they do together, how they split up, how they get back together etc.
The film is very touching, as it nears the end, but it also is very funny, with stupid things always occuring. It also contains some action when he is in Vietnam. The film has everything almost. The cast is excellent. I liked Gary Sinise as Forrest's caption in Nam. The beautiful Robin Wright played Jenny, and Sally Field played Forrest's helpful mother.
When you haven't a clue what type of movie to see, see this.
