*** A third option is that he's a light deconstruction of a Sue. He lucks into all these accomplishments, but all the money and fame and recognition in the world [[spoiler:can't bring back Bubba, his mother or keep Jenny by his side in the end]].

** Is Forrest just BornLucky or is he a full-on AntiSue? Your answer to that is probably based on whether you like the movie or not.

*** AlanSilvestri's entire score (getting him his first Oscar nomination) qualifies. How much so? In spite of the movie's classic-radio friendly song soundtrack, it's Silvestri's "Suite From ''Forrest Gump''" that gets played over the closing credits.

** Lieutenant Dan for a long while. He loses both his legs on the battlefield (and is denied dying in battle -- a fate he assumed was his "great destiny", and ends up as an alcoholic, disillusioned wreck in a wheelchair while Forrest gets all the attention and praise. Only when he and Forrest become successful as shrimping boat company executives does he finally start to become grateful he survived. Not only does he become wealthy, but he finds a new wife -- and even gets new legs. ("Custom-made titanium alloy.")

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The chapters in the book where Gump, a female astronaut and a orangotang get shot into space, crash land in the jungles of New Guinea and get put to work as cotton farmers for a CannibalTribe. ''For four years.''

** The original music piece that plays when Forrest runs for the first time is ''still'' one of the most popular pieces to play during triumphant sections of awards ceremonies, and has been a staple of the Oscars pretty much since the movie came out.
