Contrasting Forrest's unassuming innocence with the upheavals and rancor of the times, the film is a wisely goofy commentary on the stupidity of smartness.

Clean up the language, and this little roach of a movie could play the bottom half of a double bill with Rowan and Martin's #147;The Maltese Bippy.#148; [26 March 1999, Life, p.9E]
