A great big hug of a film.

The coincidences that make the destined lovers' paths cross aren't contrived with much finesse, but the characters get in some decidedly clever lines.

The well-honed dramedic performances by endearingly mock-cranky Hanks and quirky, cryin' Ryan add just enough weight to what might otherwise float away...[Blu-ray]

Predictable-but-sweet romantic comedy.

Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan and America Online. Could you be anymore 1990s?

...you've got a lot of saccharine sweetness in the film, but it's a good kind of sweetness, a gentle, loveable, delightful sweetness.

The clumsily loaded characterisation not only treats almost every other figure as dispensable, but doesn't even bother to make Meg and Tom properly sympathetic.

Mail may not be as romantic as Sleepless, but it's wittier.

You've Got Mail is not as saccharine as I expected, but the sugar-coated love story offers us nothing new or original.

There's no denying the on-screen chemistry between Hanks and Ryan, but still it never really seems to spark as much as it did in Sleepless in Seattle.

There is something marvelously contrived about this classic situation: two attractive and incongruous characters who don't know what we know:They belong with each, and when the heck will they get together?

You've Got Mail is probably not as engaging as Sleepless, with which it will inevitably be compared, but it has its moments.

It's a good date movie, and I recommend it. But don't forget to rent The Shop Around the Corner.

This film enchanted me, and even if it did work for me slightly better as a comedy than as a romance, it's still a great comedy -- and Ryan and Hanks are teriffic.

A love story destined to be remembered as one of the best of the decade.

Yes, You've Got Mail isn't strikingly profound or groundbreaking, but it's one of these movies that just make you feel real good.

Fully-stocked, well-oiled and soulless, You've Got Mail sure feels like a franchise operation -- all that's missing is a greeter and a discount card.

Every time You've Got Mail is about to choke on its own cleverness, it's resuscitated by its extremely likable -- oh heck, let's just call them lovable -- stars.

Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron's screenplay is adequately warm and funny, and the characters sufficiently charming, to draw audiences in to the unlikely but ultimately engaging love affair.

Um filme carente de atrativos como os que fizeram de 'Sintonia de Amor' uma pequena obra-prima entre as comédias românticas.
