Movie Summary

Director:
Nora Ephron
Released:
1998
Rating:
PG

You've Got Mail is the third pairing of comedy sweethearts Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in this sweet 1998 remake of "The Shop Around the Corner." Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) owns a specialty Manhattan bookstore. Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) is the obnoxious owner of a mega-bookstore chain that will likely run her out of business when it opens in the neighborhood. Kathleen tries to stand in his way, but nothing will stop Joe from reaching his yearly quota of new stores. Unbeknownst to these business rivals, they also know each other as online pen pals. They each begin the story with different partners: Kathleen lives with Frank (Greg Kinnear) and Joe lives with self-involved Patricia (Parker Posey). But, eventually their true selves will meet their online counterparts. Director Nora Ephron ("Sleepless in Seattle") wrote the script (with her sister, Delia) and brings her trademark wit and polish to the irresistible combination of Hanks and Ryan.

      • Kathleen Kelly: What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.

      • Joe Fox: The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don't know what the hell they're doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino.
