    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    Sleepless In Seattle director Nora Ephron originally made a name for herself as the writer of romantic comedies such as Heartburn and When Harry Met Sally.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

    The Shop Around the Corner
    The Shop Around the Corner is adapted from the Hungarian play by Nikolaus (Miklos) Laszlo. Budapest gift-shop clerk Alfred Kralik (James Stewart) and newly hired shopgirl Klara Novak (Margaret Sullavan) hate each other almost at first sight. Kralik would prefer the company of the woman with whom he is corresponding by mail but has never met. Novak likewise carries a torch for her male pen pal, whom she also has never laid eyes on. It doesn't take a PhD degree to figure out that Kralik and Novak have been writing letters to each other. The film's many subplots are carried by Frank Morgan as the kindhearted shopkeeper and by Joseph Schildkraut as a backstabbing employee whose comeuppance is sure to result in spontaneous applause from the audience. Directed with comic delicacy by Ernst Lubitsch, this was later remade in 1949 as In the Good Old Summertime, and in 1998 as You've Got Mail. It was also musicalized as the 1963 Broadway production She Loves Me. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Not only did I get "You've Got Mail" in blue ray, the original "Shop Around The Corner" was included in this package! I enjoyed watching the original black and white "Shop Around The Corner" first and then watched the newest version of this timeless tale, "You've Got Mail". The letter writing relationship between the characters is quaint and comfortable. Enter today's methods of email and the immediateness of responses. The differences in lifestyles from "Shop" to "Mail" are dramatized nicely. This double entertainment package blue ray provides a very enjoyable and entertaining evening.

      Another Great Hanks-Ryan Collaboartion

      Concerning the movie, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan truly are an excellent Rom-Com duo. Of the three, this is ahead of Joe vs. the Volcano and behind Sleepless in Seattle. This flick will join my Valentine's Day Single's Movie Marathon. I think it drags a bit in the middle, the rivalry between Hanks' and Ryan's characters after Hanks' character learns that his online penpal is Ryan's character. What seals the deal for me is the end, playing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", well played. The Blu-Ray is pretty standard, although there was a little bonus. The Blu-Ray has a dvd of "The Shop Around the Corner" a movie which You've Got Mail borrows heavily from.

      First off let me say I am a horror/action film fan. Love me violence and more violence. Yet I absolutely love this movie. This film just has that special something I just can't get enough of. The one problem though is the video quality on this release is a little lack luster. Not super horrible but could have been better. Seems darker than the DVD and LaserDisc releases. One big plus is that it comes with the film Shop Around The Corner, the original film this one is based on. All in all it's worth picking up if you don't have any other previous releases.

      Bonus DVD not included

      Product description noted that "The Shop Around the Corner" film was included in the case as a "Bonus DVD". I opened the case and there was no extra DVD. I played the film, but the "The Shop Around the Corner" film was not included among the bonus / special features. I went to Best Buy to ask for the missing disc / or a replacement, but because it was over 15 days from the purchase date, they refused to help me. Horrible service by Best Buy, will not buy from them again.

      Love Story starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan as two people who have been corresponding via email for years not knowing each other's identity. They finally meet because of business but don't know they are the email correspondents. The "audience" is in on the "secret" from the start. The price is fantastic and also includes the movie this is loosely based on "The Shop Around the Corner".

      My favorite all-time movie, but dread the day it airs on TCM! The major characters were well-developed and believable - and funny. Jean Stapleton could have been given another scene to work her magic. The feel of NY was pretty authentic, and the now vintage dial-up just adds to its charm. The bluray version did enhance the photographic aspect. What else can I say? Get a nice glass of wine, sit back and enjoy. My cat even enjoyed the outdoor scenes, its Lewis approved at 3 paws.

      The great chemistry of Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan are once again matched to enchanting romantic comedy. Meg, an owner of a small book store that is having to close because of the big chain book store ran by Tom Hanks. The two meet and unknowingly the truth about each is not known until they have grown to truly see each other and fall in love. All this takes place and they get to know each other through email not knowing it's the other that they are speaking too.

      Great Movie, Good Blue-Ray Quality

      One of my favorite movies, just a good-time heart-warming story. Blueray quality isn't really a "WOW!" factor for this movie (understandable as it was filmed 20 years ago), it does look nicer than a DVD though. I'm a guy who is usually into more of the Adam Sandler / Will Ferrell type comedy movies, or most action packed movies, however this I do enjoy this "chick-flick".
