Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks ????

I saw this film years ago. Now that the price is down, I purchased it to watch again. I wouldn’t call this a great film. It makes no major statements, or have any distinguishing features other than being a cute story. It is the story of a kid that grows up with certain significant mental and physical deficits, and eventually overcomes them, while inspiring those around him. It’s quite funny for placing Forrest in the most interesting positions, such as meeting presidents and traveling the world over, while forever being mentally occupied with a girl that showed him respect early on in life. The acting by Tom Hanks is him at his best. The story is a bit of fantasy, but woven in a delightful fashion that owes for multiple re-watchings.
