I'm 18 in a year. I really hope I age as well as Forrest did. He didn't change AT ALL from being an old teenager to being a bloke well into his 50s.
Would you blame it on the running? Surely he'd get a grey hair or two.
Anyway. Most people (apart from women) think its a terrible film. I watched it all the way through for the first time this evening. While I wouldn't have given it those Oscars, I wouldn't call it terrible either. It starts off poor, gets good, then goes crap towards the end, and has a shit ending.
I'd give it a generous 6/10.
Is it hated by you?
