"Forrest Gump" is a genuine runaway Hollywood-type movie hit. Which doesn't make any sense at all.It has almost no sex. No fun violence. No Ah-nuld.It's about a guy with an IQ of 75 who becomes, as only Hollywood could envision him, the best of his generation, the very generation that tout le monde is sick to death of hearing about.This is a hit?People who had seen "Gump" insisted that I had to go because it was the history of my life and times. Well, I don't mind telling you I was skeptical.

Give Damon Wayans credit: Whatever his sins, vanity is not one of them. Achieving star status in "The Last Boy Scout," he didn't use it to spotlight himself as the world's coolest dude. Instead, as in "Mo' Money" and now in "Blankman," he's chosen to play nerds."Blankman" is, in fact, a kind of "Revenge of the Nerds V: The Superhero Who Couldn't Fly -- or Even Catch the Bus." It follows as a hopelessly uncool, unhip, unsuave young man manages to triumph over all -- in his underwear, it is true, but a triumph none the less.

POTOMAC -- Coming into the Kemper Open, Scott Gump had no reason to think this would be the start of something big, and maybe it won't be. But for one day, at least, he was in the spotlight.Gump, a first-year player on the PGA Tour, opened with 6-under-par 65, good for a share of the lead.In 10 previous events, he had made four cuts, posted a lo round of 69 (twice) and had earned $9,590."How was his interview?" asked Chris, his wife of one year an three days, aware that it was a new experience.

Gump, Gump, Gump, Gump, Gump. Were we shocked at the big winner at the Academy Awards Monday night? Of course not.The guests weren't very surprising, either. Nearly everyone was well-behaved. Some of the stars even combed their hair this year. For once, the presentation patter was slightly less than awful. Were there no highlights or disasters?Of course there were. Maybe you're still annoyed at some of the choices made at the Oscar ceremonies, but you can be assured that these unofficial awards are well-deserved:Most optimistic joke: "We should all be home in about half an hour."
