About the Movie

Tom Hanks gives an astonishing performance as Forrest, an everyman whose simple innocence comes to embody a generation. Alongside his mamma (Sally Field), his best friend Bubba (Mykelti Williamson), and his favorite girl Jenny (Robin Wright), Forrest has a ringside seat for the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century. Winner of six Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Best Director (Robert Zemeckis), and Best Actor (Tom Hanks), FORREST GUMP remains one of the great movie triumphs of all time.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Forrest Gump has the elements of an emotionally gripping story. Yet it feels less like a romance than like a coffee-table book celebrating the magic of special effects. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jan 7, 2014

Fresh: A picaresque story of a simpleton's charmed odyssey through 30 years of tumultuous American history, Forrest Gump is whimsy with a strong cultural spine. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: It's most successful when it is being off-center, a state of grace it doesn't quite have the nerve to maintain. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 8, 2014

Fresh: This tall tale may reach monumental proportions, but Forrest Gump always keeps its magical airiness and grace. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Feb 20, 2013
