You've Got Mail Movie Review
You've Got Mail is about a woman named Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan), who's children's book store is in danger of being put out of business because of a new Barnes and Noble type book super store, owned by Joe Fox (Tom Hanks). When they meet each other they (of course) hate each other. What's the problem? They don't know that the other one is their favorite e-mail buddy. The premise is actually creative but they don't do anything with it. Hanks and Ryan have the unnecessary romances with Parker Posey and Greg Kinnear at the beginning, but the audience knows better. We know they're going to be history in about forty-five minutes. Bored yet?
Sleepless in Seattle was ok but compared to this it was a helluva lot better. Hanks and Ryan's talents are wasted here because they don't have much to do. Ryan just received a Golden Globe nomination for best actress (in a musical or comedy) and it gets you wondering whether the Hollywood Foreign Press did an eenie-meenie-minie-mo type thing picking her. Don't go see this, you won't like it.
You've got a headache!
