Youve Got Mail

You’ve Got Mail (1998)

Director:

Nora Ephron

Starring:

Tom Hanks

Meg Ryan

Greg Kinnear

Plot:

Two business rivals hate each other at the office but fall in love over the internet.

Review:

The intro is so great, the sound of the internet connecting. So many memories… Obviously the technology doesn’t hold up.

I like the modern interpretation of The Shop Around the Corner. Unlike In the Good Old Summertime, this isn’t just adding music or a modern setting. The story takes several new changes. Kathleen Kelly, Meg Ryan, isn’t working beneath Joe Fox, Tom Hanks, she owns her own business and they are rivals. She isn’t as mean as the other women either. She has her moment, but it’s a fluke and not something she’s normally able to do. When she is mean what she says is, basically, what the women said in the previous movies.

Tom Hanks is probably just as awesome as Jimmy Stewart, love him.

Like the soundtrack in this movie too.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite romance movies, it’s been a while since I’ve watched it so I’m glad I had an excuse.

5/5
