“Hanks şi Zemeckis ne răsfaţă cu două ore de rîs inteligent, îmbinat virtuoz cu emoţia, umor pe margine locurilor comune ale mitologiei americane într-o comedie-dinamită (după un roman de W. Groom) nu lipsită de afectuoasă înţelegere pentru societatea contemporană. Dovadă vie că, aliat cu ambiţia, şi filmul de autor poate face succes de casă, şi lecţie administrată esteţilor care cred în divorţul fatal dintre arta elitei şi maculatura ‘vulgului’.” (Dicţionar universal de filme, 2002)

Roger Ebert: „I’ve never met anyone like Forrest Gump in a movie before, and for that matter I’ve never seen a movie quite like „Forrest Gump.” Any attempt to describe him will risk making the movie seem more conventional than it is, but let me try. It’s a comedy, I guess. Or maybe a drama. Or a dream. […]

As Forrest’s life becomes a guided tour of straight-arrow America, Jenny (played by Robin Wright) goes on a parallel tour of the counterculture. She goes to California, of course, and drops out, tunes in, and turns on. She’s into psychedelics and flower power, antiwar rallies and love-ins, drugs and needles. Eventually it becomes clear that between them Forrest and Jenny have covered all of the landmarks of our recent cultural history, and the accommodation they arrive at in the end is like a dream of reconciliation for our society. What a magical movie.”
