Forrest Gump (49:26) No bad language to ruin your roommate’s bathrobe.
A movie hated as much as it is loved occupies T100P #115. This flick shouldn’t work (or make us like it), but Tom Hanks and Robert Zemeckis team up to sell it beautifully at (nearly) every turn. The cast is fine, the F/X are still pretty cool and that soundtrack is one of the best ever. Prepare yourself for a record number of Gumpian impressions, then order yourself some Sparkplug Coffee while hearing all we have to say about that.
YouTube links: “Run, Forrest, run!” and Bubba runs through every iteration of shrimp ever prepared and Lieutenant Dan tries out his sea legs (even though he ain’t got no legs) and Forrest meets Little Forrest and Cracked funny folks discuss the troubling aspects of the Gump
