10 Other Movies That Deserve Theme Restaurants

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is a chain of restaurants based on the 1994 film Forrest Gump. Today there are 32 operating Bubba Gumps. Now forget how weird it is that Forrest Gump of all movies has a successful chain of licensed theme restaurants, why have other movies not gotten this opportunity? Today that oversight ends.

1. Shawshank Redemption

“Chicken is a good thing. Maybe the best of things.”

2. Apocalypse Now

“I love the smell of hearts of palm in the evening. And you will too!”

3. The Silence Of The Lambs

“Our special is the liver of a census taker with fava beans and a nice Chianti… again.”

4. Cocoon

“I’m Wilford Brimley and I have diabetes… And I’ll be your waiter.”

5. The Godfather

“I’m going to make them an offer they can’t refuse… Bottomless breadsticks.”

6. Deliverance

“Great pork. Great live music. You’ll squeal with delight.”

7. Soylent Green

“Soylent Green is people. And it’s delicious!”

8. Jurassic Park

“The ‘Life Finds A Waffle’ is delicious. We spared no expense.”

9. Say Anything

“Hey my brother can I interest you in our soul food classics? Here at Say Anything, there is food in our food.”

10. Star Wars

“I’ll have the Wedge Antilles Salad and she’ll have the ‘It’s a Tilapia!’”

“Don’t order for me. I’ll have the “Mos Eisley spaceportabella mushroom.”

Just why Forrest Gump? So Bubba talks about wanting to start a shrimping business. I’ve seen Kevin Smith’s movies, that doesn’t mean I want to eat at Mooby’s.
