Synopsis: The presidencies of Kennedy and Johnson, Vietnam, Watergate, and other history unfold through the perspective of an Alabama man with an IQ of 75.

Although this was an enormously popular film - and won Tom Hanks a Best Actor Oscar - we thought it just okay. The insertion of Forrest into virtually every important event of the 50's through the 80's was a little artificial.

Hanks absolutely deserved the Oscar for his performance. Sinese also did a wonderful job. However, the story was long, contrived to a certain extent and just a bit over the top. An overall enjoyable movie, touching and moving at times, and definitely to be watched, but it is not the best of films ever.
