Show Notes

When did it become cool to hate Forrest Gump?? Because way back in 1994 this film won all the Oscars and had people sobbing into their popcorn over Forrest’s love story with the one and only JENNNNNAAAAYYYY. But is the film actually racist? A flippant take on disability? Emotionally manipulative? It’s maybe all of those things and our girl Adrienne is so scared you’re gonna cancel her because she still loves it.
