”Forrest Gump” is now more family friendly

Before Forrest Gump could fly the friendly skies, producers had to bring the PG-13 movie in line with the airline industry’s fit-for-all-ages viewing standards. One casualty was the folksy aphorism ”Shit Happens,” which shows up on a bumper sticker in the film. The first, offending S and H were painted over, frame by frame, so that now the G-ratedd bumper sticker reads, ”It happens.”
