Two Line Reviews - #389

Movie: You've Got Mail (1998)

Plot: A man and a woman in Newyork are mail-friends over the internet. Personally, they both are business people in the same line! The man's shrewd business sense makes the woman go out of business; She confronts him with the advice he gives as the anonymous chatter. The cat-fight leads them to love, all with the woman not knowing who her mailing friend is!

What Works?

  • This must have been one of the films that took up the Internet boom for a story-line and the presentation of a love story in such a setup is good with the book-store factor acting a prominent thread that carries the film.
  • Tom Hanks plays his role with comfortable ease and Meg Ryan's role is absolutely adorable.
  • The squmishes they get at the sight of each other is funny and ironic to watch!
Predictable love story but enjoyable too.
