An excellent, funny movie about a woman named Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) who is put out of business when Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) opens up a fancy bookstore on her street. I liked this one more than Sleepless in Seattle.

Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) loathes Joe Fox (Tom Hanks), after all, he is the reason why her bookstore is struggling to attract customers. After Joe opens a corporate book store just across the street, how can her modest store compete with his discounts? When Kathleen starts an online relationship with NY152 she falls head over heels with this mysterious man although she is in a relationship with someone else. Unbeknownst to Kathleen, this mystery man is, as expected, Joe Fox. Eventually, Joe realizes that the girl of his dreams is in fact Kathleen. Now, he must try to win her over and make her forget that they hate each another. I was so excited for this movie since in reunited Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan after Sleepless In Seattle. Unfortunately, its anticlimactic ending made this movie a huge disappointment.

Super sweet romance with adorable Meg and Tom. Nobody is making these type of movies nowdays, and it doesn't have to do with who is in it, it is about the whole package: a story, script, music, settings, chemistry between actors and etc. Rewatched it X times.

Excellent good fun. Witty script, great chemistry between the principals, and a feel good story to boot. Pushes all the right buttons, particularly if you're a romantic at heart. The musical score is a hit all by itself.

GOOD 1998 movie which I gave a watch because I enjoyed Sleepless in Seattle also by much of the same crew but 5 years later (Ephron, Hanks, Ryan). I'm now enjoying seeing Jean Stapleton (as Birdie) in her various film appearances. Now I can vaguely remember her as Edith Bunker TV character.
Fun plot manipulations involving on-line messaging anonymity, loss thereof, etc.
I do occasionally give a watch to more contemporary movies than the 1930's-50's filma I am, um, researching...

Loosely based on the James Stewart/Margaret Sullivan film "The Shop Around the Corner," which is well worth seeking out.

Interesting to see how closely some parts follow "The Shop Around the Corner," and how others diverge. Some of the sentimental parts are a bit disjointed from the rest of the movie.

I loved this movie when it originally came out, but it is even better now to watch it. The dial up network and AOL brought back memories. Great movie.

Kathleen Kelly: [writing to "NY152"] People are always saying that change is a good thing. But all they're really saying is that something you didn't want to happen at all... has happened. My store is closing this week. I own a store, did I ever tell you that? It's a lovely store, and in a week it'll be something really depressing, like a Baby Gap. Soon, it'll be just a memory. In fact, someone, some foolish person, will probably think it's a tribute to this city, the way it keeps changing on you, the way you can never count on it, or something. I know because that's the sort of thing I'm always saying. But the truth is... I'm heartbroken. I feel as if a part of me has died, and my mother has died all over again, and no one can ever make it right.
