Tom Hanks won an Academy Award for his performance in this comedic, epic drama where he plays the titular character, a chocolate-loving athlete who eventually creates a shrimping empire. "Forrest Gump" never fails to make audiences laugh, cry and cheer along with the character's antics and adventures. Although this film was liberal with the source material and there were disputes between filmmakers and Winston Groom, the author of the novel, the end result is one of the most entertaining and touching films created. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Paramount)
