Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."  - Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks)
Forrest Gump is about a man which is not so intelligent, but accidentally been present at many historic events. The movie comes so very amazing that at the end makes everyone in silence.

The movie starts when he discusses his level of intelligence with a stranger while waiting for a bus. He tells about his life and being accidentally involving in many American historic events entirely without trying. Forrest teaches Elvis Presley to dance, become a football star, meet with John F. Kennedy, become a war hero in Vietnam, speaks in a anti-war rally defeats the National team of China in Ping Pong, discovers the break-in in Water dance, opens a Shrimping business, become an investor in Apple Company, and the first man who run across the United States of America, but Forrest never forgets his one true love Jenny (Robin Wright), Forrest Gump involve in many historical events in America but the most remarkable in film is the ending, when he became a father.

Forrest Gump - Movie Poster

Forrest Gump is unpredictable, it is not a typical movie about a Zero becoming a Hero, or man struggles to be rich, He is not funny, or romantic. It is not a normal movie about a disabled person figures what is the reason on why he lives.

Critics considered Forrest Gump as one of the best movies of all time, that most of the people seen it agrees. The Film will make you cry, make you laugh, there is moment that stun you into silence and there is events that make you cheer.

Winston Groom wrote the 1896 novel, Forrest Gump, an optimist in the face of strong opposing evidence, despite of being “stupid” he became a character that everyone will love and remembered. It is Robert Zemeckis, the director places Forrest in different historical event, and it is Tom Hanks who brings humour and humanity in the character “Forrest Gump”. Those 3 make the film really amazing.
Humour, sadness, action, drama and romantic film rolled into one. This is so much than a good film. Forrest is everything we admire in an American Character, and show irony that nobody can stand around him for long.

Forrest Gump won 6 Academy awards including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director. They have also other 38 wins and 44 nominations in other Major Film Festivals around the world. Have a total gross $670 million dollars all over the world. It also ranked #18 in Top 250 Films of all time. The film is definitely a win-win and as Forrest’s Mama always said you will never know what you can get.
