You've Got Mail(1998):"A delightful, audience pleasing film which lift everyone's spirits and put a smile on their faces."
In the mid to late 1990s, the Internet was quickly becoming a technological advancement that would change people's lives in so many ways.
You'be got mail is charming film about romance in the digital age.
What is very impressive about "You've Got Mail" is that it tries its hardest to make the movie as realistic as possible, whilst also keeping a touch of a fairy tale fantasy about it.
From the use of email as a form of communication, to the modern day threat of mega-stores destroying the more traditional shop, the movie really is influenced by many elements of every day life.
You've Got Mail stars Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan as two competing bookstore owners named, respectively, Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly.
He runs Joe & Sons, a bookstore that he hopes will grow into a huge bookstore chain.
She runs The Shop Around the Corner, a small independent children's bookstore.
Joe and Kathleen dislike each other because they're business competitors.
Yet, when they go home to check their e-mail, they spend time sending messages to their pen pals, not realizing they're chatting with each other. It is rather funny to see these two characters act so nicely to each other online but attempt to outdoor each other in their business.
They are best of friends online, chatting anonymously across the internet and helping each other out, to the extent that despite both being in relationships they are falling in love with each other.
Anyway, the whole movie is a series of events with the face-to-face business competition and the online romance.
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan at their best.
Tom Hanks gave a fabulous performance - understated, real, and believable.
The plot is very relevant to modern day life, which when paired up with two of Hollywood's most popular performers makes for an overall enjoyable viewing experience.
I think fans of romantic comedy are likely to enjoy this movie.
You might as well call it "You've Got Charm."
