You’ve Got Mail !

Last night I watched You’ve Got Mail …. I forgot how much I just love this movie!
It’s one of my favorite romanic comedies…It always seems to lift my spirit when ever I watch it…Nora Ephron directed the movie and wrote the screenplay as well. I just love her movies …. She always manages to bring back old hollywood romance to the screen with a modern sense of humor. I like the choices of music in this movie… though I think that she did a much better job with the music in Sleepless in Seattle ( one of my favorite sound tracks )…
And I have to say I don’t think that there is a screen couple more perfect than Tom Hank and Meg Ryan today…

One of my favorite lines in the movie is when Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) types this on her computer:

Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life- well, a valuable , but small- and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it , or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this comic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.

Just thought that I’ll put Sleepless in Seattle as well since its directed by Nora Ephron and stars Hanks and Ryan as well…. and because I love this movie too :p

One of my favorite lines in this movie is when Tom Hanks’s character speaks to Dr Marcia on her radio show:

 Dr Marcia Fieldstone: Tell me what was so special about your wife?
 Sam BaldwinWell, how long is your program? ……Well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together… and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home… only to no home I’d ever known… I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like… magic.

  1. You’ve Got Mail was the best 90s movie for me…whenever I watch it, I feel happy and fuzzy but also feel like crying…it’s a weird feeling!

    I loved the soundtrack…especially the last part when she found out it was him all along and then “Somewhere over the rainbow” was playing…AHHHH!!!

    I want to watch Sleepless in Seattle cause I don’t remember it that much (but I really hate the fact that Rosie O’Donnell was her bestfriend) XP

    Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are my favourite living actors I think…they might not be the only two….but I’m not going to bother my brain into giving it a little more thought =P

      • Hahahahaha
        Noora , yes i don’t like Rosie either but to be fare her roll is too small and she played the best friend for like 2 mins so she won’t ruin the movie for you I promise 😉
        The sound track has been my favorite for years now and I never get board from listening to it 🙂

  2. …you should watch ‘The Shop Around The Corner’ it’s a 1940 movie. ‘You’ve Got Mail’ is the remake of that movie…I like you’ve got mail so much more…but it’s still a really really great movie to watch 🙂

    • Thanks.. yes I would like to watch that … Nora Ephron always bases her movies on old ones . For e.g: Sleepless in Seattle was based on An Affair to Remember… Have you seen that one?

      • No i haven’t…it’s the one with Cary Grant and Debora Kerr, right? We’ll buy it then…I think it’s already in our ‘must buy movie list’ 🙂 hehee

  3. the part where she says ” God i wished it was you ! ”
    Makes me CRYYYYYYYYY
    as Noora said.. best movie of the 90’s

  4. 2 of my favourite movies… don’t know which one i like better… love the quotes, i had goosebumbs reading them lol
