Bubba Gump [Bali]

Forrest and Bubba's Restaurant

Bubba Gump Funny Signboards
Bubba Gump, resto yang terinspirasi dari film Forrest Gump yang dibintangi oleh aktor legendaris Tom Hanks. Film forrest Gump sendiri sudah cukup lama tayangnya, bisa dilihat di link wikipedia ini https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forrest_Gump
Pertama kali ditayangkan tahun 1994. Ceritanya sendiri cukup menghibur , ada unsur komedi dan drama yang menarik, sekaligus mengangkat masalah keterbelakangan mental yang biasanya susah untuk diperankan. Untuk pembaca yang usianya muda mungkin lebih tahu referensi tentang Forrest Gump dari film komedi tahun 2008, Trophic Thunder.


Bubba Gump is a movie themed restaurant, named after the restaurant mentioned multiple time in the Forrest Gump movie, starred by Tom Hanks in 1994 ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forrest_Gump)
Many young reader wouldn't know about this film, but it's quite renowned, mentioned also in the 2008 blockbuster comedy, Trophic Thunder.





Bubba Gump - Kuta
Di Filmnya, nama resto ini pertama kali dicetuskan oleh rekan seperjuangan dan teman baik Forrest Gump, Benjamin Buford "Bubba"Blue, yang akhirnya meninggal di medan perang.

This Restaurant mentioned the first time in the movie by Benjamin Buford "Bubba"Blue, who is Forrest Gump's best friend and fellow soldier who eventually died in the Vietnam War.



Small Net Catch - Rp 160.000
Hidangan yang kita coba rasanya lumayan, tapi tidak ada yang istimewa. Rasa biasa dan harganya cukup tinggi untuk standard franchise. Di Bali yang banyak turis asing bakal lebih ramai dibanding di Surabaya, yang memiliki banyak resto seafood yang lebih menarik untuk dikunjungi untuk menikmati makanan semata.


The food is decent, I'm not really impressed by this dish though, there are similar franchise with
better value and better tasting dishes in Surabaya area if you only want to savor the food.
Nevertheless, Bubba Gump for me have the nostalgic feel of the old Forrest Gump movie. I never watched it in the cinema, but I've seen the film from cable broadcast.


"Never go Full Retard"

Kirk Lazarus
: Check it out. Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. Peter Sellers, "Being There." Infantile, yes. Retarded, no. You went full retard, man. Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went full retard, went home empty handed...
