Watch the Honest Trailer for ‘Forrest Gump’… Okay?

When I told my wife Paramount was planning on re-releasing Forrest Gump this September in IMAX to celebrate it’s 20th anniversary I was largely telling her to gauge her reaction. Would she say, “Oh, we should go see that” or “What the hell”? Happily it was the latter because I can’t figure out for the life of me why anyone would need to go see Forrest Gump in IMAX, let alone why we’d need to go see it again at all.

I was 17 when I first saw Forrest Gump and I’ll admit I liked it, but wow is that a film I have no real desire to see again all these years later, not to mention I have since seen Peter Sellers in Being There (1979), which I’d say is everything Forrest Gump is trying and wants to be and more.

This isn’t as if I’m some outright hater when it comes to Forrest Gump, I just think it had its one magical moment and its soundtrack certainly became a thing. So, instead of an IMAX re-release, let’s celebrate with something a little more fun… an honest trailer.
