Hack Attack Ep. 5: Forrest Gump (1994)

In this episode of Mr. Mendo’s Hack Attack, Mr. Mendo lists the 7 worst things about Forrest Gump, the tale of a simpleminded buffoon who somehow lucks into having the greatest life ever, while everyone around him suffers and dies horribly.

But you probably know this movie best as the 1994 Academy Award Winner for Best Picture, beating out Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption despite being mawkish, syrupy, and nauseatingly trite.

Join Mendo as he rights some wrongs, solves the Kennedy assassination, exposes the fascist ideology of Tom Hanks, reveals what’s in Marsellus Wallace’s briefcase, and takes a cue from the film itself by raping as many classic pop songs of the ‘60s and ‘70s as humanly possible.
