Movie Info

The film tells of Kathleen Kelly, who owns a children's bookstore in New York. It is a small but profitable labor of love -- until Foxbooks, a mega-chain of super-sized bookstores, begins building across the street. Joe Fox, an executive with the family-owned firm, is directly responsible for this particular branch. Kathleen despises Joe and everything he seems to stand for. The future of her very livelihood is in doubt. When Kathleen and Joe are not working, they are logged onto their respective computers, where they've each met a wonderful friend. No one else has shared-or is even aware of-their intimate, anonymous electronic conversations that begin with the magic words "you've got mail."

Audience Reviews for You've Got Mail

  • Jul 17, 2014
    This film shouldn't work at all. It doesn't have much of a story and the whole dial up internet thing is incredibly dated. However Hanks and Ryan sell it beautifully and you can't help but root for them. Ryan is very similar to her 'When Harry Met Sally' persona but it's Hanks who has the harder role of playing a potentially unlikeable character. It's also nice to see him relaxing into a comedy role again after so maybe Oscar-worthy films. This is one of those films that you'll end up watching again and again when it turns up on TV.

    Dispite, Nora Ephron's You've Got Mail, looks like a weak and odd version of Sleepless in Seattle and that don't present some finals elements of the plot, this movie show a good chemistry between Ms. Ryan and Mr. Hanks characters and in a skilful way, Ms. Ephron make the audience be delighted with the strange and sweet couple formed by Joe (Hanks) and Kathleen (Ryan). Fresh.

    Great romantic comedy. Hanks is charming and Ryan is her usual cute young self. Plus, the soundtrack is great.
