Tom Hanks deserves a Lifetime Achievement Award, or a Nobel Prize…something (60 Photos)

Talk about a career. From his humble beginnings back in the early ’80s till now, Tom Hanks has continued to move and amuse audiences worldwide.

There are some notable movie omissions from this list for the sake of time. But feel free to let me know what I missed that you love immensely.

      You're so much less attractive when I'm sober.

      Thank goodness it's not that often.

    • David Henderson

      Anyone ever notices that every Tom Hanks movie he's got something going on with peeing? Like a league of their own hes peeing at the beginning. In The Green Mile he has a bladder infection, in Forest Gump he tells Keenedy he has to pee. It's like his trademark.

      "We have weak trees"

    • bob

      Jesus, you guys testing missiles here?

    • Jessica

      I concur!

    • Val

      i love this movie… kept hoping it would make the list.

  • dallas_oc

    I liked his character in A League of Their Own.



    • Shockteck41

      Don't get the clap – Jimmy Dugan

      • Tom

        Avoid the clap. Great line

    • JohnnyBoy

      Good selection sir.

    • AwesomePDT

      His character in A League of Their Own was priceless.
      Walter Harvey: You kind of let me down on that San Antonio job.
      Jimmy Dugan: I, uh, yeh, I, uh… I freely admit, sir, I had no right to… sell off the team's equipment like that; that won't happen again.
      Walter Harvey: Let me be blunt. Are you still a fall-down drunk?
      Jimmy Dugan: Well, that is blunt. Ahem. No sir, I've, uh, quit drinking.
      Walter Harvey: You've seen the error of your ways.
      Jimmy Dugan: No, I just can't afford it.
      Walter Harvey: It's funny to you. Your drinking is funny. You're a young man, Jimmy: you still could be playing, if you just would've laid off the booze.
      Jimmy Dugan: Well, it's not exactly like that… I hurt my knee.
      Walter Harvey: You fell out of a hotel. That's how you hurt it.
      Jimmy Dugan: Well, there was a fire.
      Walter Harvey: Which you started, which I had to pay for.
      Jimmy Dugan: Well, now, I was going to send you a thank-you card, Mr. Harvey, but I wasn't allowed anything sharp to write with.


      Uh, Lord, hallowed be Thy name. May our feet be swift; may our bats be mighty; may our balls… be plentiful. Lord, I'd just like to thank You for that waitress in South Bend. You know who she is – she kept calling Your name. And God, these are good girls, and they work hard. Just help them see it all the way through. Okay, that's it.

      • The_Truth

        (after Dugan spits tobacco on Mr. Lowenstein's shoe)
        Ira Lowenstein: Jimmy, if we paid you more do you think you could be more disgusting?
        Jimmy Dugan: Well I could certainly use the money.


        Dottie: Ever been married?
        Jimmy Dugan: Yeah, twice.
        Dottie: Any children?
        Jimmy Dugan: Yeah, one of them was.

      • The_Truth

        Ira Lowenstein: Great game Jimmy. I especially liked the move in the 7th when you scratched your balls for an hour.
        Jimmy Dugan: Well, anything worth doing is worth doing right.

      • Huell

        (while doing a curtain call on opening day)
        Jimmy Dugan: Bullshit. You can all kiss my ass. That's right, kiss my big hairy ass.

      • Regal Eagle

        Jimmy Dugan: Did anyone ever tell you, you look like a penis with that little hat on?

  • 6_Crack_rocks

    #38 AOL is fucking terrible.

  • DrunkOldMan

    #1 Donna Dixon. As hot as they come.

  • Viking4

    Saving Private Ryan

    • tkc

      Probably his best movie ever. Especially the scene where he tells everyone one that he was an English teacher before the war.

    • Jakeman


    • Needing a Trollop

      I would say second best..Forrest Gump takes the cake there

      • Jimmy da Hat

        Forest Gump only won the Academy Award that year because of Hanks! Pulp Fiction SHOULD have won!!! (I'm still pissed about that!)

        • Jack Mehoff

          Pulp Fiction is the most overrated film of all-time.

          • truth

            Uh…hello? Titanic?!?

            • James Cameron

              Ha, hook, line and sinker! They always fall for the old Jack Mehoff gag! You owe me $20!

        • clay

          Disagree on both counts, Shawshank Redemption should have won!

    • a-nom

      I was wondering myself how that wasn't on this list…

  • sjd

    Nobody knocks off an old man in my neighborhood and gets away with it

    • nola

      The Burbs is one of my favorite movies of all time!!!

      • nola

        "Hey, Pinnochio, where do you think you're going!!?!"

        • Bob


        • t money

          really wish I could give this more thumbs up

    • rsjem1979

      About a "9" on the old tension scale, eh, Rube?

    • Travis

      Shut up and paint your goddamn house.

  • NoDak

    Joe Versus the Volcano

    • Stephen

      Saving Private Ryan?

      • _HypoLuxa_

        Fuck Private Ryan . . . we're talking about Joe Vs the Volcano here! (so under-rated)

        • Tara

          Yes it fucking is! How could someone not love that movie?

        • Joe

          Worst movie ever

    • Steve

      One of his best!

  • Ahmed

    Toy Story!

    • Bunny on nite shift

      All 3 of the Toy Story movies! I'm not ashamed to say I teared up during the third one – it' s animated, for f*&^k's sake!

  • Eric

    turner and hooch. 1989. Great movie

    • jimstarswagg

      One of my all time favs.

      • Billy

        I just watched it….. True story

    • chelsea_dagger

      This is not your room.

  • The_Hellequin

    Nothing on Saving Private Ryan?

    • JohnnyBoy

      How Shakespeare in Love beat that out for Best Picture of the Year, I will never understand.

      • Dan

        SiL was a good movie, but Private Ryan was just plain amazing.

    • mjb

      Yep, this is the biggest miss on the list. One of my top 5, but I am biased towards Hanks' and Speilberg's stuff…

  • melindu

    Tom Fucking Hanks shirts?

    • frecklebutt

      I would rock the shit out of a Tom Fucking Hanks shirt.

    • Just a Guy

      Great call.

    • truth

      Good Luck. Been waiting forever for Betty White tshirt.

      • Becca

        Betty Fucking White. That needs to happen.

    • Bobby

    • russel

    • Jesse

      please, please look into making TFH shirts. if not, maybe steve martin? those guys, along with BFM, are the kings of comedy. hands down.

      • Becca

        Steve Martin!! Perfect idea! Of course, I'd rock a Chevy Chase or Dan Aykroyd shirt any day also.

    • Big D

      We need a Wilsooooon! t-shirt

    • Becca

      Best. Idea. Evar.

  • Verbal_Kint

  • DrunkOldMan

    And ummm… SPLASH

    • Dick

      Yeah, wtf? That was his first big movie.

    • Ray

      I STILL watch that movie whenever it comes on basic cable. Great movie

      • Boondock

        I skimmed too quickly, I thought #10 was Spash.

  • Fizzappp


  • Chris

    Saving Private Ryan!!!!!!!
    One of the best made movies ever

    Saving Private Ryan (1998), one of the greatest war movies of all time.

      Agreed — that needs a mention

    • Macro

      Probably my favourite movie of all time.

    • Bill

      Not to mention his work (not acting) with Band of Brothers
