PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
The presidencies of Kennedy and Johnson, Vietnam, Watergate, and other history unfold through the perspective of an Alabama man with an IQ of 75.
Inspired by Lieutenant Dan Taylor, the military veteran character he played in this movie, Gary Sinise co-founded a rock and roll cover band during the mid-2000s called "The Lt. Dan Band." The band often goes on U.S.O. tours to play for U.S. military personnel stationed around the world, and also plays various benefits for veteran-related causes. Sinise was awarded the Presidential Citizen Medal in 2008 for his charity efforts.
Hello. My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump. You want a chocolate?
Forrest calls the hotel desk at Watergate to report what would be the infamous burglarizing of the Democratic National Committee headquarters. However, the office building portion of the Watergate, was on the Northeast side of the hotel. The hotel rooms are oriented Northwest and Southeast, and meet the office building at almost a T intersection. Neither Forrest, nor any other guest of the hotel, would have been able to see the burglars in action.
In the Cinemax version as of 2008, at the White House All-American football banquet, the African-American servant who opens Forrest's Dr. Pepper has his face cut out of the scene. Only his arm is shown.
