Forrest Gump is a comedy-drama that was released in 1994. It is based on a novel called Forrest Gump that was written by Winston Groom. It was rated very highly by critics and viewers, and it became a top film that has since been an American classic. The film has been able to bring audiences to tears, make them hysterically laugh, and feel appreciation for the people in their lives. The way Tom Hanks was able to depict such a quirky character as he navigated through life with an intellectual disability was both charming and incredibly heartbreaking.
The movie was a hit with moviegoers, who loved listening to Forrest tell his life story from a park bench over and over again. It's hard to believe there was a chance that the film came close to not being made. The film went through multiple re-writes, and it was incredibly difficult to cast, many also felt that it came too close to the 1988 film Rain Man. Luckily, Paramount Pictures decided to buy the rights to the project, and it seems the rest is history. If you're one of the people who has seen the film countless times, here are some things you missed or didn't know about the Oscar-winning film.
