The only thing the book & movie have in common is the word 'gardener'. Not even close in content, style, intent, spirit or anything else.

So often true! I read the book "Forrest Gump" and it was not anything like the movie. I think the author, Winston Groom, should get down on his knees and give thanks every day that someone read that book and got the idea for that movie. Instead he grumbled about the changes they made
