It's been 20 years since Forrest Gump was released and Tom Hanks has become the Internet's friendly uncle, Jenny is the cold hearted wife of a politician and Bubba Gump is a seafood restaurant we all ate at because we remember lines like Run, Forrest, Run. But why did we ever like the movie? Screen Junkies lays the smack down on the movie that captured our hearts and in turn, makes fun of everyone who ever liked it.

I mean sure the movie was full of cliches and had a love story that was basically a woman manipulating a handicapped person and shoved the idea of always doing what you were told in life down your throat but it was fun! Right?! Right?
