About This Quiz

Think you know all there is to know about "Forrest Gump?" Prove it by acing this quiz.

"Run, Forrest, run...." Let's face it, you didn't read those words, you actually said them in your head... or maybe you said them out loud. The fact that people hear those words, instead of merely reading them is proof positive of the enduring allure of this iconic movie.

So, what's the appeal?

Never mind Tom Hanks' stellar performance in the role of Forrest, a slow, but lovable, lug who always sees the best in people and life. Never mind the all-star cast of Hanks, Robin Wright as Jenny Curran, Gary Sinise as Lieutenant Dan Taylor, and Sally Field as Forrest's mother. And never mind the excellent direction by Robert Zemeckis. The story is a darn good one. Based on a 1986 Winston Groom novel of the same name, the movie, released in 1994, told an engaging and heartwarming tale of the persistence of the human spirit. The film did well at the box office, earning nearly $700 million from a tight budget of only $55 million, and it won a whole host of awards.
