Very good story telling and the plot is fragmented perfectly, building up of the character and everything happening around him

It's too specific to be a proper allegory, and too vague to provide a satisfactorily millennial perspective. Neither is it caustic enough to make one cry, nor soppy enough to make one laugh.

I always assumed this film would have a positive impact on me, and I wasn’t wrong. Not the greatest film ever, but a fairly strong message throughout. Despite the score and telling of the story, there’s one major thing that frustrates me: the interpretation and representation of lower IQ individuals and those with exceptionalities. Constantly, this film portrays Forrest and others in an extremely negative light. Another issue I have is the usage of a different voice by Tom Hanks. He did a great job with it, however, it felt wrong and always felt like it was making fun of individuals with exceptionalities and that bothers me a lot.
Back to the future is probably my favorite movie of all time but I wouldn't fault anyone who says Forrest Gump is Robert zemeckis's magnum opus. No movie has more quotable lines hands down.
The definitive classic of heartbreaking stories. I really enjoyed following the main character through his entire life.
A cute family classic. The entire movie was adorable and resonates well with all viewers, but especially children. Highly recommend watching this with the family.

Again another generally revered film starring Tom (W)Hanks - playing to all the stereotypical laughs not nearly as funny as SM ‘The Jerk’ - I sometimes put FG in the same class as Marley & me - with the latter winning each time

Heartfelt movie of a below average human living the biggest life he could.
Fantastically made and is a must watch before you die movie.
Funny, relatable and sad. Be prepared for a roller coaster of emotions this film is. I would recommend going into this film blind (no trailers or information) and it's on Netflix though there are other ways

One of the best stories of all times. Tom Hanks is an extraordinary actor & was incredible in this movie. Biggest lesson is judging someone who is different in this world is not ok!

Is a very funny movie, lots of dumm Jokes, but still good ones. It has some sentimental scenes, but enough to call them sad.

A feel-good classic, genuine and real. Hank’s take on a role that has endured a lot of events compacted with emotions is a challenge he achieved. Having all that and interlinking them together towards the end of the film culminates into tearful yet jovial ending.
Very good film. Even now watching it, it is enjoyable, but I do find the odd part of it can drag. However, certain scenes do make up for it considerably!
