I personally laughed out loud many times watching this movie. The people are authentic, eccentric and lovabale. It's an ordinary small town in the middle of a very cold nowhere. Lucy finds out quick just what beyond frigid feels like. She begins as an unfeeling corporate executive, and ends up loving the people she came to give pink slips to. She has a choice to make and she does the right thing. Bravo! This movie will leave you feeling good.
Not a typical review here, but rather a comment about the running theme in the movie. This actually helped inspire me to begin running. The apparent freedom Gump achieved from his running was the most effective part of this theme. Kind of like the "runner's high," which really does exist. And if you like shrimp, pick up the Forest Gump Cookbook -- try the shrimp cake recipe.
