You’ve Got Mail (1998)

(PG) 120 mins

Synopsis: Neighborhood bookstore rivals unwittingly become e-mail pen pals in this charming remake of The Shop Around the Corner.

Starring: Tom HanksMeg Ryan

Supporting actors: Parker PoseyJean StapletonDave ChappelleSteve ZahnDabney ColemanGreg Kinnear

Directed by: Nora Ephron

Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures

Serious Jest:  (Don’t Bother)  A rich-boy yuppie and a frumpily-dressed, uptight woman meet in an internet chat room and exchange emails over dial-up AOL about such riveting topics as how people on the Upper West Side of Manhattan order their Starbucks…and the ending is underwhelming.  Not even the outstanding cast could save this movie, although they might make you not hate it.
