Hello, Worst Screenplay Ever Written. How are you today? That's good to hear. And your children?
I am well, although my wife is still dead.
I'd love to chat more, but I must return to my laboratory. There are may tweaks that must be made before the device is operational.
Send my regards to Haley Joel,
Yours in christ,

Tom Hanks and cast are perfect. This film grows on you because it is so innocent but I always felt slightly manipulated.

I don't know why this movie is so loved. It's a good movie but no where near the title of the greatest movie of all time.

It's pretty good, although grossly overrated.

There are two types of people who hate Forrest Gump: Non-Americans and Pessimists. I'm neither so this film is great; A modern American myth

I believe it deserves it hype and acclaim, sure it's maybe not AS GOOD as Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction but calling Forrest Gump a masterpiece isn't a stretch.

I saw a movie critic stating that this movie was not good because the main character was not portrayed by an actor with a disability. Honestly, I respectfully disagree with him because with all due respect to the other actors no other actor could have played Forrest Gump better than Tom Hanks. This is easily his career-best performance.

Don get why people hate this movie. Arguably one of my favorite movies to watch in the summer.

"What makes Forrest Gump one of the great triumphs in cinema history is its effortless exploration of what it means to live a full and satisfying life . . . true happiness can only be achieved by following the heart." - Martin Liebman
