Forrest Gump 2. Seriously. Same beats, same scenes, same stock characters. That being said, it was enjoyable, tear-jerking Oscar bait. I got a little emotional. I think my mom would like this movie a lot.
I liken it to a well-crafted pop song. You know, first single has to be a club hit, second single has to be a sappy ballad.
This is an amazingly executed second single.
