You've Got Mail

Jays Rating:
Actors: /

A cute movie you’ll want to see before the end of the year is, You’ve Got Mail. It’s an endearing story about two complete strangers named Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly, played by Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan respectively, who “meet” on the Internet. They agree that they should never divulge their real names or anything personal about themselves, yet they share just enough to build a strong friendship. As the friendship progresses, Kathleen begins to confide in Joe regarding a business problem – Kathleen owns a small bookstore – and Joe tries to help as much as he can without knowing any of the specifics. (You know, kinda like I try to help my wife!) The irony is that Joe happens to be building a mega-bookstore around the corner from Kathleen, and he’s planning to put her store out of business – but he doesn’t know that she is the owner. When Joe and Kathleen finally meet in person they don’t like each other; of course neither one realizes that they are email buddies. I know what you’re thinking; a real man like me wouldn’t enjoy watching or listening to a movie about bookstores, computers or cyber-love. This script is very well written and I enjoyed watching a new approach to romance. It was a little predictable, but you can never go wrong with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. I give this film a B rating.

This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
