Or how about we don't subscribe to your particular interpretation, jerkoff?
Calm down, dude. I wasn't insulting you.
But is she really considered one of the most hated characters?
She represents child molestation, home abuse, drug abuse, the hippie generation, free love, freedom from commitment, and all of its consequences and struggles to show that despite everything that can go wrong in a person's life, she is still striving to be a good person. Every time she gets close to commitment or reality or indeed happiness; she gets scared and turns to another form of coping. Its a tragic sad story, but I don't hate her. Once she has the kid, she gets a job, settles down, puts him in school (where he excels), takes care of him, and when she finds out she is dying she makes sure he is set for the rest of his life.
In the last scene, where she is dieing, she looks more happy and healthy than any other point in the movie. Because maybe she finally grew up. She finally realized that some things are more important in life than material possessions and pleasures. She realized that family and commitment can make you more happy than drugs and sex and music and everything else.
Or maybe im just a hopeless bleeding heart romantic and she is a dumb count.
Either way, Forrest Gump is the GOAT
