I always wonder what it is with the Best Picture winners from the nineties always getting so much flack – from Titanic
to Shakespeare in Love
, The English Patient
and the film we’re talking about now Forrest Gump
. Granted I wasn’t in the Forrest Gump
camp back in ’94 but I’m always amused when it’s hit with the inevitable moniker “Worst Movie Ever” – just check IMDB
Anyhow, we’re re-casting it for this episode. I will say, I wasn’t too big on Hanks performance, though it was good for what it was. Just send me your thoughts on who should play the main characters: Forrest Gump (originally Tom Hanks); Jenny Curan (originally Robin Wright
Penn), Lt. Dan Taylor (originally Gary Sinise), Private Benjamin Bufford (originally Mykelti Williamson) and Mrs. Gump (originally Sally Field).
Send me your ideas to dangerous.liaison231(@)yahoo.com (remove parentheses) with Forrest in the title…
My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” So on that note, be as original as possible….
