Synopsis


You've Got Mail
Sleepless In Seattle director Nora Ephron originally made a name for herself as the writer of romantic comedies such as Heartburn and When Harry Met Sally. She continues the genre with You've Got Mail, marking her second collaboration with actors Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. The story brings romance and courtship into the electronic age of the World Wide Web via e-mail and chat rooms. Joe Fox (Hanks) and Kathleen Kelly (Ryan) live and work blocks from each other on New York City's Upper West Side. Their lives are practically intertwined. They both shop at the same place, frequent the same coffee shop, and even own competing bookstores on the same street. They also both have significant others of their own. Joe has the overly hyper book editor Patricia Eden (Parker Posey), while Kathleen lives with the scholarly newspaper columnist Frank Navasky (Greg Kinnear). Then they meet in a chat room. Though they keep their identities secret (they're known only by screen names "NY152" and "Shopgirl"), they tell each other everything about their lives, including their private feelings, which slowly turn into affection for each other. When Joe decides to open a new branch of his "Foxbooks" chain that risks putting Kathleen's "Shop Around the Corner" out of business, the tension between them escalates. Surely her boutique business will be lost to the conglomerate with a built-in newsstand and coffee bar. When Joe sees Kathleen waiting for him in the restaurant where they agreed to meet up, he puts two and two together, but cannot face her, given their agreement not to reveal each others' names and professions. How can he reveal himself to her now, knowing that he is the cause of her misery? Hopefully, love will conquer all. ~ Chris Gore, Rovi

    Absolutely wonderful movie

    This edition of "You've Got Mail" is wonderful. It looked great on my widescreen TV and it was an even better movie than I had remembered. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are a dynamic duo. Having already completed two movies before this together, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan interact in a comical and quirky way. Joe Fox (Hanks), the business-driven owner of Fox Books chain, begins an online friendship unknowlingly to the charming Kathleen Kelly (Ryan) who owns an independent children's book store. They do not get along in person, but start falling in love with each other online through chatting and e-mails. It is a heartwarming and funny movie. I would reccommend it to anyone!!

    In being a true love finder on the internet i can vouch that it CAN happen, seeing as how i met my wife through the internet. This movie is heartwarming and touching. Everything a chick flick should be and not too bad for the guys to set through either if you're with your woman =) Check this one out with your lady!

    It's 'you've got mail'. For sure, it doesn't need any recommendation. It a great classic movie that everyone should own. I check couple of stores before purchasing it from BestBuy, and all of them have similar retail price.

    I wasn't ever really impressed by 'You've Got Mail,' as I much preferred Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan together in 'Joe Versus the Volcano.' However, for those who enjoy the film, this is a solid widescreen release with some acceptable bonus features.

    A really good flick, but I wished they would have gone with at least one different actor than the two from sleepless in seattle. A fun take on e-mail and today's technology. A nice date flick, heck, they could update it to Text Messaging.

    The 1998 remake of The Shop Around the Corner and In the Good Old Summer Time. It is a fine film staring Aol, New York, and the Godfather.

    Pretty good movie which I prefer over other Hanks/Ryan films. The cast is pretty stellar from Dabney Coleman to Greg Kinnear. Good edition on DVD.
