PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
The presidencies of Kennedy and Johnson, the events of Vietnam, Watergate, and other history unfold through the perspective of an Alabama man with an IQ of 75.
It is Robert Zemeckis' highest-grossing film to date.
Hello. My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump. You want a chocolate?
Forrest is awarded the Medal of Honor, which warrants a salute automatically from all officers and enlisted people who see it on the wearer. Several military personnel fail to salute the Medal when Forrest is walking with Jenny in Washington D.C. The Medal is saluted, not the rank.
In the TBS version and probably as well in the ABC version, the line at the end of the dorm scene is cut, "I think I ruined your roommate's bath robe".
