We all got swept up in the Forrest Gump hype when the film came out 20 years ago, even though looking back it isn't actually that great a movie. And certainly didn't deserve to beat Pulp Fiction for best picture.
Anyway, it did give us a chain of crappy seafood restaurants and endlessly quoted lines about life and chocolate and running. Ask yourself, when was the last time you watched the movie? If it was twenty years ago then prepare for a shock at what a strange film it was.
It basically centred around a mentally-handicapped person who was manipulated by everyone around him, including his girlfriend and supposed friends. Still, if it was on TV I'd watch it.
