How do you know Jenny wasn't lying?

I see a Lifetime movie, "Jenny the Missing Years"

Why did Jenny wait so many years
to tell Forrest Gump about his son?
Because IMO, while Jenny looked like a pretty much ok person on the outside (in spite of the childhood abuse), in reality she was totally messed up on the inside and had an instability that repeatedly made itself manifest in such things as repeatedly choosing bad boyfriends, bedding Forrest in the first place, then running off, and then not telling him about their love child or her disease until the last. In real life, she probably would have looked and acted a lot different and not nearly as "put-together" as in the movie.

re: Why did Jenny wait so many years

I guess I get your point about how some women are cruel and use others, though that is CERTAINLY a knife that cuts both ways. And I totally agree that Jenny took Forrest for granted in many, many ways. But, seriously, she was supposed to spend the rest of her life having basic level conversations, interactions, and sex with a mentally challenged man? I mean, really? I understand the hate lobbed at Summer for similar reasons, but Jenny? She knew that was a one night stand. The kid, eh, prob figured she wouldn't worry Forrest about it, the product of her type of lifestyle , then she gets sick and has to do something about his future. Again, I really dislike her, just understand her motivation.

the only proper motivation and i think it's an actual one in the movie is that she thinks of herself as damaged goods and actually puts forrest on a pedestal of purity. thinking she isn't good enough for him.

she illustrates this after his proposal,
"you don't want to marry me"

i used to take this line as her dismissal of forrest and his grasp on love (because forrest addresses that in his response)

but if i were writing a defense of jenny, i would say she meant that as "you don't want to marry me, i'm not good enough for you"

and portray her as a victim who used self destructive behavior as a way to deal with her self esteem issues and history of abuse.

it all depends on what she meant by that line.

but the point should be, if the world treats you like shit, and you constantly push away the only person who cares about you, who's the real retard?

re: Why did Jenny wait so many years


quote:

the whole jenny-forrest dynamic just proves that nice guys finish last. i think it's all zemeckis wanted to do with the movie other string together a butt load of improbable coincidences.

but poor forrest.

all he does is pine for this chick that he loves with all his heart and wants to be with forever.

meanwhile she's all over the country filling her holes and veins with man jizz and drugs respectively. then when the world chews her up and spits her out she returns to forrest knowing not only does no one else now want an AIDSey washed up whore with a kid, but forrest is the old comfortable sweater that's been there all along to make her feel special instead of being a nut butter receptacle that doubles as a punching bag.

so in the face of death she marries forrest, not for him mind you, because she's fricking got a death sentence and isn't going to be there for him, but instead she does it for her. selfish fricking twat.

then she gets to live fast, die young, and dump her responsibility on the good hearted idiot that would (and did) do anything for her.

like it's been stated here, it's probably not even his kid.

all this movie did was reinforce to women that you can just take advantage of perpetual friend zone dwellers, go ride all hog you want from numerous douchebags and when you're tired of being treated like my dorm room kleenex, settle down and get the life you've always wanted with that guy who's "been there all the while".

so jenny spends her youth getting physically and sexually abused by her father only to spend the rest of her life following that same pattern with awful men instead of just being with the one man who didn't treat her like the floor of a porno theater.

the thing zemeckis got right is that he put her in the ground where she can't hurt someone else like forrest (because there could've been more men in her life like forrest we just didn't see).

forrest really was a "tragic" hero. he just didn't know he was. and jenny really was a villain.







Damn, dude. Sounds like some girl really messed you up.

This may have been addressed earlier in the thread, but I felt like having him watch tv with the dumb head tilt that Forest always did was supposed to be the hint that he actually was Forest's kid.

re: Why did Jenny wait so many years


How did Jenny have a son and make the beast with two backs with Forrest and not pass on AIDS to either of them? We are lead to assume that she turned her life around after becoming pregnant so one would assume she had AIDS before sleeping with Forrest. This has always bothered me and I would love a good explanation from someone.

i'm not a dr or anything but i think aids is harder to pass on from female to male than vice versa. i could be wrong.

I think this movie is so stupid. I can't even look at Tom Hanks after this movie.
