Benjamin Button Vs. Forrest Gump

I don't go to the movies very often, so I haven't seen The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which has somehow tricked the Academy into giving it 13 Oscar nominations (seriously, most of the reviews I read for the film were kind of "meh"). However, according to a (sadly unavailable) video from Funny or Die, I don't need to see Benjamin Button because the film basically follows the same trajectory as Forrest Gump. Although Gump does not contain a shirtless Brad Pitt, I think I'll stick with Tom Hanks and BB v.1.0, if only to avoid the overpublicized insanity that is Branjelina.
