Move over, Triumph of the Will. We've got a fresh new load of propaganda!
For a movie that acts almost like a travelogue for how awesome America is, don't you think it's odd that the story centers around your average American - some random, low-intelligence nobody?
The theme of this movie is simple: Do as you're told.
That's all Forrest does in the whole movie, and he ends up a famous millionaire entrepreneur war hero athlete and pop culture icon.
Jenny, on the other hand, does the exact opposite, questions the status-quo at every turn, stands up for what she believes in all throughout the movie...and ends up a depressed abuse victim with two broken homes and AIDS.
