Forrest Gump is nothing less than an epic journey through almost 50 years of American history, told through the eyes of Forrest, the unwitting hero of the movie.
It's a movie which is equal parts comedy, drama, romance, historical and satirical: many critics were unsure, but audiences weren't as it grossed over $650m. In addition, it swept the board at the Oscars, claiming 6 of them, including one for Forrest himself, Tom Hanks, who accepted the offer of a part just an hour and half into reading the script.
We've got this far without mentioning the 'box of chocolates' quote - we did pretty well.
But if you're a diehard fan of the film, you should know plenty more about it than just that line (to be fair, the 40th greatest movie quote of all time according to the American Film Institute). See how much you know about Forrest, Bubba and the gang, with our fiendishly tricky quiz.
