Struggling boutique bookseller Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) hates Joe Fox (Tom Hanks), the owner of a corporate Foxbooks chain store that just moved in across the street. When they meet online, however, they begin an intense and anonymous Internet romance, oblivious of each other's true identity. Eventually Joe learns that the enchanting woman he's involved with is actually his business rival. He must now struggle to reconcile his real-life dislike for her with the cyber love he's come to feel.

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.
