Although they share similar plots, there are two resounding differences. The obvious being that Benjamin is born OLD. "I was born under unusual circumstances." The other being that his story is told in a way that is perfectly normal, which contrasts his abnormal life; which I am sure, is the point.
Gump is spiced up with the meeting of many famous individuals, making his life seem thrilling.
I really adore both movies, and I do see a lot of similarities, but that does not make either one a rip off of the other.
If you have not seen TCCOBB yet, I suggest you do. It was one of my movie highlights of 2008.
I love both movies, but seriously, before somenne goes slamming a film or novel, at least ATTEMPT to know what you are talking about.
SOrry, I just hate war/romance movies and combining the two is sheer bloody boring torture for me
And that was.... way to accurate..
WTF are books?
I spit out my drink... That was just too funny.
Benjamin Button was a BOOK by F. Scott Fitzgerald before it was a movie--way before. Forrest Gump as a ripoff--absolutely possible. Go to the library. Check it out.
But still--funny as hell. Somebody was thinking..."Hey, people loved Forrest Gump. And he wasn`t even based on a classic novel. Quick--dig up that F. Scott dude!"
Heh...kidding, of course. I prefer reading to most movies any day.
Don`t plan on it either.
