This is probably why the first person he talked to (a black woman) got on the next bus right away, even though it's not her bus.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: It may take place in a cynical, mean-spirited world, but Forrest's belief in the best of humanity, kind-nature and sweet-heart, makes this movie incredibly idealistic.

* LighterAndSofter: The book is broadly similar but has a darker, more sardonic and cynical tone (particularly during the Vietnam sequence, as the author served in the war) and explicit sex and drug use along with weirder misadventures.
