Movie lessons tested

Lesson 1: ‘Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get…’Forrest Gump (1994)

Irksome words of wisdom from Mrs Gump to her fleet-footed, slow-brained offspring.

Expert: Cadbury’s spokesperson

“We try our best to make each assortment the same. There will be give or take on one or two units. But, broadly, each box will feature the same proportions throughout.

The whole point of assorted chocolates is that whatever you like, someone else won’t – and whatever they don’t like, there’s always some Granny or Auntie who will. You’re trying to cover a broad spectrum.”

Verdict: Chocolate boxes are designed to be uniform and predictable. Not like life then.
