    At its best, Forrest Gump is a gentle, elegiac fantasy about love and trust. show more

    Doesn't sound like a very prepossessing title, but prepare to be taken aback by "what's in a name." [6 July 1994, Life, p.1D] show more

    Clean up the language, and this little roach of a movie could play the bottom half of a double bill with Rowan and Martin's “The Maltese Bippy.” [26 March 1999, Life, p.9E] show more

    Yet, for all that's wrong here, one thing is wonderfully, blissfully right, and his name is Tom Hanks. show more

    The film's technical brilliance and sentimental kick seduced many viewers unsuspecting of its polemical intent. show more

    Clearly a great event, Forrest Gump is not, however, a great film. It has the form of an epic without real depth or resonance; the trappings of satire without a coherent attitude; and the semblance of historical revisionism without a critical sensibility. show more

    A remarkable balance of sentimentality and harshness, darkness and light. show more

    Forrest Gump is a movie that carries a deeper meaning than what is shown at the surface. The movie tackles gender roles of the time, racism, and the hippie era. Forrest Gump is one of the greatest movies of all time and when you attentively watch you can learn a little about society in the mid to late twentieth century.
