imho - Your web cruising, chat sessions,
and e-mail can wait while you go see this delightful romantic comedy. Tom
Hanks and Meg Ryan are screen to screen as they traverse their daily life
in New York but find each other in e-mail. Predictable and cute. They still
have a chance in the film to reveal their lives and frustrations. Meg Ryan
got a well deserved Golden Globe nomination Best Actress. -- 19 December

21 Feb - This movie is for the die-hard romantics.
I even cried. The ending is the cheesiest, and the sweetest. I could even
go all out and say it beats Titanic. Two words for Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks:
Go y'all. -- AMaNdA, hailing from Singapore
17 Feb - Hi. We really liked "You've Got Mail".
It was really good and successful. We admire Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. They
are our favorite actors. We hope they make more good movies together. Maybe
even a sequel to "You've Got Mail". We also like the music. We liked it
so much that we bought the C.D. Our favorite song is "The Puppy Song" by
Harry Nilsson. -- Sam Gruber and Kaitlyn Parsons
16 Jan - I absolutely love the movie You've Got
Mail. It was inspiring, romantic, and comical. It left me with a wonderful
feeling. It made me curious to go online. Meg Ryan is truly phenomenal.
I would recommend it for young and old. -- Jessica
12 Jan - I thought the story line was a good idea,
but it was very long and quite predictable. But Tom and Meg make
the cutest couple.
10 Jan - I cried, I laughed, I absolutely loved
it! Movies are meant to take you inside their world and let you suspend
disbelief. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan do just that. Well, at least I was longing
to be in Meg's shoes. -- from Australia
10 Jan - The cutest movie I have ever seen! Tom
is great and Mag is simply enchanting as always. I'm going to recommend
it to all my friends. -- CIAO, Elena from Italy
8 Jan - I enjoyed You've Got Mail tremendously
but I thought that the ending was a little awry. At the end, Kathryn says
to Joe, "I hoped it was you." But nowhere in the movie did I get the sense
that Kathryn was figuring out that it was Joe who was her "e-mail penpal."
If they had incorporated more of that, I think it would be a better movie.
Either way, it was wonderful to see two great actors make a movie come
alive like the way Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks did.
8 Jan - Some people think that this is a spin-off
of the movie Sleepless in Seattle, which in some ways it is. It is just
a more updated version with the system of America Online to make it attract
more of an audience. Many of the actors from You've Got Mail also appear
in Sleepless in Seattle. These people include Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, and
Parker Posey along with the director, Nora Ephron. My favorite part is
where Kathleen said, "You've got mail. Three powerful words. I've got mail.
From you." It is a great movie overall though. -- Steve
5 Jan - Jack, you suck!! You're such a male!! Predictable?!!!
Wha??! And you probably think "The Dirty Dozen" and "Die Hard" wasn't!!.
It was an awesome movie, no matter how predictable. I loved it. -- kim
4 Jan - I really enjoyed it. Thought Tom
Hanks was brilliant, he is such a good actor, his expressions were great
I felt like I was really there. -- Claire
2 Jan - The BEST movie that I watched during 1998.
I loved the very beginning. It set the pace for the rest of the movie.
I recommend that you watch it with a friend. Especially if you are Email
buddies. I can't wait to buy the tape it is a KEEPER. I will then view
with my husband, over and over again. If you haven't watched it, you need
to. You will laugh through the whole movie. Be sure and go. -- Janna
1 Jan 99 - The movie was awesome. I absolutely
loved it. It was cute, charming, and enchanting. I'm glad I saw it with
my friends. ---- Liz

27 Dec - This is an AWESOME movie. It's so cute.
Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are wonderful in this wonderful film. For sure I'll
be back to see it a few times. The ending is the best...I wanted it to
be you, I wanted it to be you so bad...don't cry. It's the best...SEE
IT!!! -- Chrissy
