Forrest Gump (Paramount 1996)
Some of the best conservative movies...are just plain accidents folks.
If you've been a fan of this blog for awhile now, you've realized some of the flicks I review also have some of the biggest lib actors and actresses...! Hollywood really wants to make fun of values, God, and patriotism, but most of the films that have any success at the box office just don't reflect their negative values. As a matter of fact (leading up to our movie of the week), while searching the web I cam across this.
Here is the synopsis for IMDb...
A man with a low IQ has accomplished great things in his life and been present during significant historic events - in each case, far exceeding what anyone imagined he could do. Yet, despite all the things he has attained, his one true love eludes him. "Forrest Gump" is the story of a man who rose above his challenges, and who proved that determination, courage, and love are more important than ability.
"Tom Hank's earnest and realistic rather than satirical portrayal of Gump's retardation unintentionally ennobles him and his values in contrast to silly and selfish but oh so much smarter leftists."
Hey...sounds good to me! Forrest Gump is the Edge Conservative Movie of the Week!
It still cracks me up when he is a little kid and the expression on his face when his braces break off!
