The stars (Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan) and director (Nora Ephron) of Sleepless in Seattle reteamed for this charming audience favorite. Greg Kinnear, Parker Posey, Jean Stapleton and more great co-stars add note-perfect support to this cinematic love letter in which superstore book chain magnate Hanks and cozy children’s bookshop owner Ryan are anonymous e-mail cyberpals who fall head-over-laptops in love, unaware they are combative business rivals. You’ve got rare Hollywood magic when You’ve Got Mail.

Again a great movie despite the fact that it started off very slowly very improbably to start with. But towards the end it really picked up the pace and finished well. Some of my favorite parts were meg and tom discussing megs favorite book, pride and prejudice, especially the fault of being too prideful in a relationship. That's my favorite scene I think for a couple to connect on an emotional as well as intellectual level one should read ones partners favorite book or books. And by the way ladies if that reading material is the latest edition of sports illustrated you're in a doomed relationship get out while you still can. This scene demonstrates that a couple should also try out other things that you each like such as food, movies and music. One of my last girlfriends was a huge 'Prince,' fan. Now despite the fact that it didn't work out I routinely sing along when the radio plays 'raspberry beret, etc.' I'm a better man for having known her.
Best line in this movie for me is when Tom asks Meg why she hasn't run away with the man in her life and she says 'I don't actually know him.' Truly funny in my book. That scene was a neat trick in my book and fresh departure from the typical, quest after you're lover, plot so well traveled by Hollywood script writers.
Finally after watching this movie I wonder why 1/2 of American romance movies are set exclusively in NYC? Even Rick Blaine, Humphrey Bogart's character in my all time favorite romance movie Casablanca in originally from Brooklyn. Hey, wasn't Rhett Butler from NYC too? No...just kidding he was a southerner just seeing if you're up on you're romance movie trivia.
