Format:DVD
A 10th Anniversary DVD seems a bit vaunted for this familiar 1998 romantic comedy since it continues to play repeatedly on TBS and other cable outlets. It's no wonder since Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan have the kind of ingratiating rapport that makes it easy to slip into one of their movies no matter what part you find yourself watching. Directed by the acerbic Nora Ephron, who helmed 1993's Sleepless in Seattle with the same pair, this movie gleams with the same kind of good-natured, Hollywood-style gloss that made the previous outing a hit. However, the pieces fit a little too perfectly for me, so much so that it feels packaged for maximum audience appeal. It really takes the combined skills of Hanks and Ryan to make this palatable, even likable, but it's not without its challenges.

As with Sleepless in Seattle, Ephron, along with her sister Delia as co-screenwriter, attempts to update a tried-and-true film classic, this time Ernst Lubitsch's The Shop Around the Corner (1940), about two people who are concurrently in an antagonistic professional relationship and also anonymous pen-pals fantasizing who the other may be in real life. The novelty this time is that the story takes place at the dawn of the Internet age when people automatically set up AOL accounts with incognito screen names. E-mail and instant messaging have replaced the need for the postal system to exchange anticipated love letters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bouquets of sharpened pencils, indeed July 19, 2004
Format:DVD
Here's the main and completely irrelevant reason to love this movie: New York City in the fall. Honestly, it should have no bearing whatsoever on the plot, but it does -- and it's impossible not to fall in love with the bright, sunshiny, orange-leaved sheer beauty of the city encapsulated in this movie. Without even resorting to shots of Central Park in all its glory (and really, who can resist that?), "You've Got Mail" takes you on a lovely scenic tour of the Upper West Side, Starbucks and all. Who can resist the street fairs, the parks, the stores, the dock? It's picture-perfect, and if it's a bit surreal, I won't admit it: New York really is rather lovely in the fall.
Aside from making me want to run away to the Big Apple and work in the children's section at Fox Books, "You've Got Mail" also features Meg Ryan at her most adorable ("Aren't daisies just the friendliest flower?"), Tom Hanks at his most charming, and a terrific supporting cast (Greg Kinnear and those typewriters!). The story, a modernized little "remake" of "The Shop Around The Corner", is more fairy tale than realism -- two people fall in love over email, in war in real life, and however can such a thing be solved -- but it's an enchanting story nonetheless. In a time when romance on the web seems all-too-seedy and in reality, sometimes frankly dangerous, this little tale of two people sharing their most intimate thoughts long before they share a single glance is like a breath of fresh air. Sure, the technology's a little faded, but the magic's still there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this! March 8, 2005
Format:DVD
Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks shine in this romantic comedy. This is the second time this duo have performed together (Sleepless in Seattle). Perhaps that helps create the smooth natural tone of the interactions between the two. Ryan plays a bookstore shop owner...a tiny little store first run by her mother. Hanks company is building a huge bookstore chain in the same neighborhood. The two cannot stand each other. Besides their business lives, the two are both chatting with an interesting person through the internet and believe they are falling in love with the person. Little do they know, it is really each other! Will they meet? And if they do, will they fall in love or be shocked and disturbed? Watch the movie to find out what happens!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hearts beating in cyberspace June 15, 2005
By milss
Format:DVD
It was a matter of time. When technology has penetrated so many aspects of or daily life, it wasn't weird that love became an option.

Two strangers that get involved in a relationship through e-mail is the premise of You've Got Mail, the movie that reunites Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Hanks plays Joe Fox (F-O-X), the owner of a book megastore who comes to destroy the competition in the New York West Side, where Kathleen Kelly (Ryan) has a lovely and small bookstore.

Enemies and rivals, Joe and Kathleen live, without knowing, an anonymous romance through their computer screens. She, although tries to maintain a human and personal touch in her store (which Joe's store lacks) and is skeptic to cultural globalization, can't stand a day without logging into the place where the words of her "dear friend" wait for her.

These two constitute, over e-mail, a more solid relationship than the ones they have in the real world. Kathleen's boyfriend is a columnist opposed to technology and change. Joe shares his life with Patricia, a book editor so hyperkinetic she "makes coffee nervous". But the worst obstacles to J&K relationship are themselves.

This is a very romantic film, a little manipulative and unbelievable, but its ingenuity evokes the feeling of an old movie. Hanks and Ryan are a perfect match, complementing each other beautifully. Talent, charisma and chemistry are a combination used with success by these two actors.

The other leading character is New York City. Director Nora Ephron captures its vibrant rhythms and romantic views in such a subtle way, one can't help but falling in love with the city.

Even admitting that is not perfect, this film is very entertaining, fresh and pleasant; it has a great soundtrack and a script that makes the search for love something delicate, mysterious and irresistible. Who can wait to log in?

This has more depth than is first noticeable. Well it was based on Jane Austin & The Shop Around the Corner. Much of the dialog is from SAtC.

Does the DVD has spanish subtitles?
The Blu-ray version has French and Spanish subtitles. For the regular DVD versions, most do not. You would have to check on the item listing.

I also found a Spanish dubbed version, but it is coded for region 4 only.
