Initially, Kathleen does what she can to fight the chain bookstore from closing her family-owned bookstore down ... but she can not forestall the inevitable. Meanwhile she is sharing her thoughts about Joe Fox and the loss of her store with her email boyfriend. By this time, Joe Fox had discovered that Kathleen was his 'secret' email friend ... He is in a dilemma - how to win her heart despite having shut down her family bookstore.
Alhtough the plot is predicatable as with most enjoyable comedy/romances ... the viewer would not have it any other way. Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks provide combustible energy, emotions and authenticity to make this modern love story work. These two highly talented actors are a dynamic duo who should be paired together more often. Together they create a recipe for success that is rare in modern films. They emulate the comedy-romances of the past within the modern context of life ... creating a joyful experience for the audience. Erika Borsos (erikab93)
It's basically the beginning of the internet for personal use in the late 90's, and a love story of sorts plays out in a strange way online. To complicates things, a rivalry ensues.
I adore the cast of charachters. Even the ones with small roles, like Birdie and Joe's grandfather. I love the wording of the emails that are sent from both Joe and Kathleen. I love the locations, and the apartments are to die for!
New York is also one of the stars of this film. There are so many city scenes in this movie, and it makes you wish the New York of today was more like it was then.
To sum it up, I think this is Nora Ephron's finest film (screenplay and direction) to date. I watch it several times a year. And even though it's from 1998, it is still the one movie which makes me truly happy every time I watch it. It's sweet, romantic, and my favorite movie of all time.
