Forrest Gump

Does anyone else, while watching Forrest Gump (for approximately the 100th time on network TV), yell at the television, "Stop being such a whore, Jenny!"

Just me?

I'll shut up, then.

LOL!
How random are YOU?

Airhead said...

I don't, but I think about it. Because she IS being a huge whore.

I feel sorry for her.

Liz said...

Mar, if you're yelling at Jenny not to be such a whore, are you also yelling at Forrest not to be such a tard? And at Lt. Dan for having no legs?

I can just see it now... Marcia watching Forrest Gump for the 101st time, seeing Lt. Dan on the screen and screaming, "Dammit Dan, how bout you stop being so lazy in that chair and just grow a pair already! (A pair of legs that is!)

Lindsay said...

Well by God yes, yes I do! I yell that at random people on the street, too!

So, in my blog clique, should we ever all meet at a streetside cafe, we could yell our trademark lines at people:

Lindsay: Shut your damn mouth, Roy!
Marica: Stop being such a whore, Jenny!
Sarah: I hope you have homeowners insurance!

And we would so be committed.

I always loved Jenny and felt pissed at Forrest.

My college roommate and I used to do that too!!

I also yell, "Hey, Forrest, stop running, you flipping idiot," at the TV.

Is it normal for a 12 year old girl to walk around the house saying,"The only good thing about getting wounded in the buttocks is the ice cream."? Not that mine does. It was a purely academic question.

ahem.

I kept edging her jump when she is high on coke, and standing on the ledge. It would have changed things. If momma croaks and Jenny croaks in the end anyways, how bout from a nice 12 story high jump. I said hi

The worst part of it all is that she was still whoring after she had a child. Since Forrest or Forrest Jr. didn't have AIDS, that means Jenny was still pulling some crazy SF DP all-nighters with a litte baby at home. Total whore.

@Liz: The reason you don't tell Forres to stop being a "tard" or Lt. Dan to grow legs is because they had no choice in the matter. Forrest IS a tard and is incapable of being anything else. Lt. Dan cannot regrow legs. Jenny, however, is capable of closing her legs.

"Jen-nay" is the sole reason I find Forrest Gump unwatchable. The woman is a complete whore and not worth chasing after. Ayn Ran talked abut the sacrifice of the imperfect for the imperfect and how wrong she felt that was. That is absolutely what this film depicts.

That being said, I was told recently that the book version is much more balanced and shows that Forrest apparently did some things that weren't so nice either. I don't know - I didn't read it.

Liz said...

Dale took me WAYYYYY to literally.

I know the difference between voluntary and involuntary behaviors, and I know the difference between playing the cards you were dealt versus seeking sexual gratification for self-validation.

Dale, you need to lighten up buddy!
It was a joke.

Caryn said...

LOL! I haven't seen Forrest Gump in years, and now I'm a little curious to see what the fuss was all about--again.

I miss you...come back now!

Virenda said...

Yes, yes I do. I have to do it to the sound of Run Jenny, Run.

I always find myself watching it if I happen to pass it channel surfing.

Softball Slut said...

Simma dale, simmma. The book is freakin horrible by the way. I was so angry at it. I threw it when I was done, and I dont do that to books. I prefer to keep my innocent Forest and I am fine with that.

Stop being such an egotistical whore, Marcia...seriously. LOL you and your blog are still the joke of the day in our office. Thanks! And hey, Marcia...how come you never post our comments...hmmmm? Afraid of further agreement from others that read your blog for the ego wish-wash that it is? We read it to remind us that we are indeed normal girls and not...not..what the hell are you anyway?! Oh yeah....our joke of the day!

Virenda said...

Anon you are a boring, spineless, pointless bitch. The end.

Kat said...

I seriously doubt that Anon has ever met Marcia, since she is an amazing person with a huge heart who could never come close to warranting such horrible words. Anyone who would write that is clearly just jealous. And Anon, it's a little pathetic to hide behind the anonymity of the Internet and post bitchy messages on someone's blog. You're obviously just not a good person.

Anonymous said...

I assume the last Anon comment is a joke cause no one talks about marcia like that. step off ho. gan has your back.

Liz said...

NOBODY talks about my Marcia like that... NOBODY.

Seriously, I question the upbringing of someone who thinks that they can get away with saying something so cruel and heartless about someone who they clearly don't know, and does it in such a slimy, spineless way.

The anonymous commenter needs to see a doctor as soon as possible, because I don't know how long a person can survive with their head stuck that far up their ass.
