    Forrest Gump is home to one of the best American actors ever, Tom Hanks, who also won for his portrayl of Forrest Gump.

  • "Forrest Gump" or "Pulp Fiction"

    Its a critique to a far greater level than Forrest Gump is. Forrest Gump is not as true to the novel as it could be, but this was always going to be a difficult sell. Personally I love "Gump" more.
