• Watch trailers for the movies My Name is Khan and Forest Gump. Clips can be found on YouTube.
• Answer question

  1. Now you have these two movies: My Name is Khan is about an autistic man who falls in love, who wanders all over the United States in a quixotic quest, who quotes his mother all the time and gets to meet the President of the United States. Forest Gump is also about a somewhat different type of person, who falls in love, who happens to run all over the United States, who quotes his mother a lot and gets to meet the President of the United States. Is one character a plagiarized version of the other?
