Cool Videos: Honest Trailers bites Forrest Gump right in the buttocks

Jun. 25, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

FORREST GUMP is getting an IMAX re-release for its 20th anniversary, but Screen Junkies likes to celebrate things like this a little differently. They've released an Honest Trailer for the Robert Zemeckis film, and comment on one of the biggest issues I have always had with the film: Jenny. Yeah, she didn't have the best childhood, but she that's no excuse for being a pretty awful human being. She's kind of a user, and I'm not just talking about how much she enjoys narcotics.

That's not the only problem they have with the Oscar winning film though, so open up a box of chocolates, and check out this Honest Trailer for FORREST GUMP.

Seriously, why doesn't anyone recognize Forrest Gump?

I usually enjoy these for what they are, but that one was bad and really grasping at straws for material. Stick to doing these for movies that actually suck and not multi-award winning films.

Wasn't the best of their work, but "Sally Field now" was pretty damned funny.

Thank you Honest Trailers for having the same thought I had.

Thrilled to see someone else thought the same thing as me back in the 90s.

It's become fashionable to hate on Forrest Gump. I don't think it's warranted. I guess it's a case of hype backlash, like what happened with Slumdog Millionaire years later, but I still stand by Forrest Gump as being a triumph in many aspects of filmmaking, from Zemeckis' direction and Hanks' lead performance to the visual effects and Alan Silvestri's lovely score.

FORREST GUMP was a good film. But was it better than PULP FICTION, SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, THREE COLOURS: RED or LEON LE PROFESSIONAL? I don't think so.

Yes it was.. And 3 of those films are on my top 20 of all time.. But FORREST GUMP is such a great film. I can watch it a hundred times and still enjoy it as if I never seen it. The movies genre also changes with how you feel when you view it. The first time i watched it. I thought it was the saddest film. I immediately watched it again, and laughed my ass off. One of the greatest movies ever made!!!

Jenny didn't have the best childhood?
she was a victim of child sexual abuse by her father, Id say that may have been the reason she was lead in to the self-destructive lifestyle

Yeah this trailer was pretty weak, it's an excellent movie with deeply flawed characters.
