Forrest Gump (1994)
My opinion of the movie compared to the book.
Forrest Gump is one of my favorite movies of all time; I even liked the movie more than the book. (Which is rare.) I saw the movie before I read the book; because the movie convinced me to read the book. Naturally, I thought the book would be outstanding because the movie was amazing and usually the books are better than the movie adaptations. The book was good, but had nothing on the movie. Sorry I'm not sorry. The book had a lot of profanity, which I didn't mind until it became overkill. The book does not have the "run Forrest run" scenes, nor did Forrest have a brace on his leg. Jenny and Forrest in the beginning of the book didn't even have a good relationship. Also, in my opinion, the book made Forrest have more of a rough personality, while in the movie, although tough, he was a sweetheart. I was so frustrated with the book that I didn't even finish it, it's sitting on my dresser; still containing a bookmark and all.
