critics consensus

Forrest Gump may be an overly sentimental film with a somewhat problematic message, but its sweetness and charm are usually enough to approximate true depth and grace. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

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 is about as perfect as you can get. It is fascinating seeing this simple man make his way through some of the more turbulent times in American history. But with how innocent Forrest Gump is, he doesn't feel the gravity of all of the important events he is a part of. Tom Hanks is perfect in the lead role and there is not an actor in a supporting role that I can find fault in their performance. Sally Field, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson, and on and on and on. The cast was amazing. I never miss a chance to catch this when it is on TV and it continues to be my favorite movie of all time.

    Sometimes it's funny, sometime it's sad. It wasn't too much to handle and I had a lot of fun watching this film. However I thought it overstayed its welcome a little bit too much and I think I would cut some scenes out of the movie. It was also more violent than I thought it would be and I couldn't help notice one small scene with nudity in it.

    Forrest Gump is beautiful, has a lot of heart and is very well acted. This might be Tom Hanks's best performance, he is so convincing with his role and everyone else does a good job as well. Forrest Gump is very sentimental but all in the right ways and is one of my favourite movies of all time!

    "Forest Gump" is one of my all time favourite drama's. "Forest Gump" has got incredible acting from "Tom Hanks" and "Robin Wright". "Forest Gump" has an amazing/sad plot to it which is "Forest Gump" is not a very intelligent boy, but he has great listening skills. When he is on the bus to his first day at school he meets a girl named "Jenny Curran" who goes on to be his best friend throughout all his schooling years. The special effects in this movie are great, everything that happens looks normal, nothing looks like the back a green screen. "Forest Gump" has got sad music to go with the sad scenes which just makes them better and better. If you haven't seen "Forest Gump" I definitely recommend you watch this classic. I give "Forest Gump" a 9.5/10.
