Debated Goofs - Commented Goofs - Corrected Goofs - Explained Goofs


  • Forrest Gump reads the US Today magazine in 1970. The newspaper did not begin publication until 1982.
  • While Gump is fishing he picks up a "Mello Yello" can, which wasn't made at that time.
  • Forrest Gump claims that his beloved, Jenny, died on a Saturday. But her tombstone shows that she died March 22, 1982, which was a Monday.
  • It's the scene where Forrest goes to see Jenny and meets little Forrest. When Forrest and Jenny are talking, you can see an ironing board behind her. In one shot, the iron is down, but in the next shot, it's standing up. - Lady~Macbeth
  • Near the end of the movie when Forrest visits Jenny, it is supposed to be July 4th, 1976. On her TV is the New York Harbor Bicentennial Celebration, and a shot of the Statue of Liberty shows her with a "gold" torch, which was added as part of her restoration in 1986.
  • While playing football, Forrest outruns everyone except the referee on the sidelines. - Phroso
  • When Young Forrest is trying to find a seat on the bus, he talks to Young Jenny who has offered him a seat next to her. As Young Forrest is still standing and talking, the camera flips from Jenny to behind Forrest and back. While the camera is on Jenny a girl is sitting behind her, when the camera is behind Forrest, the girl is gone. When the camera goes back to Jenny, the girl is back. - EllaBrown2007
  • Forrest gets leg braces and can't run correctly. Then, he is running with Jenny as if he doesn't have braces. But when he is being chased by the car, he runs incorrectly again. (DVD) - alman
  • (Factual errors) Little Forest had to be like 4 to years old, but Forest ran after jenny left for 3 to 6 years, how could he impregnate Jenny if he was running for before Little Forest was born. - TAZ
  • (Continuity) When you see Forrest running from the bullies in the car, the car gets extremely close to Forrest. But when the camera shot switches the car is obviously further away from Forrest. - Bill Bob

Commented Goofs

  • Anachronism: "Happy face/have a nice day" too late in decade. "Shit happens" too early/wrong decade. -
    • Comment: Happy face/shit happens: After those scenes you hear Forrest say They "did" come up with an idea. Meaning later and not right there and then. - Ash

Corrected Goofs

  • Forrest receives his discharge papers, while standing on a basketball court that has a three point shot line, which was not introduced until 1984.
    • Correction: The NBA added a 3-point shot in 1979 after stealing it from the defunct ABA, which debuted it in 1967 after stealing it from the old ABL, which unveiled the 3-pointer in 1961. - nightkey
  • Taking place in 1963 a reporter talks about videotape, although they used film at that time.
    • Correction: Although videotape entered widespread usage in the 1970s, it was developed in the mid 1950s, and many early TV shows were videotaped. As a matter of fact, Sony Corporation was among videotape's first marketers, in 1955. - RevDrDark
  • Forrest lives in Greenville, Alabama, but, when he is running away from the people chasing him, he runs across a football field where Alabama is having practice, the University of Alabama is in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and Greenville, Alabama is a few hours away from Tuscaloosa, so he would of have to run a really, really long way to do that. - annierose
    • Correction: Forrest was from Greenbow, Alabama not Greenville. Also, when he was being chased he ran through a local high school football practice, not an Alabama football practice. Bear Bryant just happened to be there looking at recruits and noticed how fast Forrest was. If you think about it, later in the movie the people of Greenbow gave him a fine job of cutting the grass of that very same football field. - NOTLOB22
