A time-honored tradition in AP U.S History (APUSH) “or as Griffin Guerrette ’18 says ‘A-Push’ (ah- push)”, is to watch Forrest Gump at the end of the year.

Mr. P says: “I remember I went to see Forrest Gump in the movie theater when I was in high school. I brought my little cousin to it, and ever since I’ve been waiting for Forrest Gump II to come out and see how Forrest Gump captures Bin Laden.”

This movie shows that the second half of American history can be told through the eyes of a guy with a borderline IQ. Some wonder if this is a good thing.

“It’s Forrest Gump, of course it is.”

Forrest Gump also introduces the worst female character in history, Jenny.

“I hate her!”  Jenny – the most selfish, evil woman ever. If she hadn’t gotten HIV would she have ever told Forrest about the kid? “I don’t think she would have.”

While the movie offers the worst character of all time, it also offers a lot of good. Such as its CGI special effects standing the test of time.

“I still can’t figure out how Lt. Dan’s (Gary Sinise’s) legs don’t bump into things in the movie. I haven’t figured that out.”  While the bonus features probably explain this special effect, “I prefer to keep it a mystery.”

Don’t worry about the PG-13 rating. Mr. P prefaces any questionable scene with “They’re just wrestling.”
“Everyone knows when a man and a woman love each other very much, they share a special hug, and a baby is born.”
How else would the amazing Forrest Gump have come into the world?
