Life may be like a box of chocolate but the movie Forrest Gump is virtually NOTHING like the book on which it is based. The two "Margos" talk about key plot points between the 1986 novel from Winston Groom and the 1994 movie directed by Robert Zemeckis in this episode of "Book Vs. Movie." 

How different are they? Well did you know the author thought John Goodman would make a fine Forrest Gump? 

Book Forrest is 6' 6'' tall,  plays the harmonica, has an oranguntan for a best freind and at one point is recruited by NASA. 

In this podcast we discuss the incredible journey between the highly sought-after novel and the Academy Award-winning film it eventually became with tons of trivia and spoilers aplenty. 

Find out how the originallly too "Rain Man-ish" lead character was turned into a saint. Learn the differences between the book and movie "Jenny." Also, the Margos discuss the varying levels of sucessful "celebrity" appearances in the 1994 film. 

Get ready for a wild ride!

Attention all you Greasers & Socs--The Margos have committed to investingating both the SH Hinton 1967 classic novel and the Francis Ford Coppola 1983 film that still makes millions of girls scream with delight.  

In this epsiode we compare and contrast the book vs the film including what we liked (and didn't like) about each and along the way offer trivia, tidbits and spoilers aplenty. 

Whether you are a Sodapop kind of girl or long for a bad boy like Dallas--the Margos give their honest take on what works in the book and the strange choices that almost derailed the film. (Oops--are we giving something away here?)

Highlights of this episode include full-on Patrick Swayze and Rob Lowe swooning, the potential scariness of a drive-in in Tulsa and the "huh" song from Stevie Wonder that plays on the soundtrack. 

"Stay Gold!"
