Yeah, you've all seen it. Don't deny it. But I think it's time we've all had a nice, friendly group discussion about the film.
So I'd like to start things off by asking what you guys think of it. Personally, I love the film, but I haven't seen it in quite some time, so I'd have to watch the film again before posting any kind of review.
Of course, it's certainly not Robert Zemeckis' best work, and it's certainly not the best of 1994 (that honor I'd give to Pulp Fiction or Hoop Dreams), but it's not a bad film. I think the performances are really good (everyone raves about Tom Hanks but neglects Gary Sinise which is sad) and the screenplay is filled with many memorable one liners, but the question stands: is it a sweet, inspiring, heart-warming drama or a manipulative offensive piece of shlock?
I'll leave the answers up to you all.
