Hanks and Ryan together again,
This review is from: Sleepless In Seattle (Amazon Instant Video)
Sleepless in Seattle is a great movie on many levels. It is basically parody on "Love Story" with a few changes. Naturally if you notice the cast you already have half of the formula figured out. But the beauty in this movie is in the details.
A recent widower Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) and his son (Ross Malinger) moves across the country to Seattle to get away from old memories. His kid tells the father's story on a Christmas talk radio show and says that his dad needs a new wife. You hear heartstrings of women listeners twanging and more than a few closes in for the kill.
