From Amazon.co.uk

By now, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan have amassed such a fund of goodwill with moviegoers that any new onscreen pairing brings nearly reflexive smiles. In You've Got Mail, the quintessential boy and girl next door repeat the tentative romantic crescendo that made Sleepless in Seattle, writer-director Nora Ephron's previous excursion with the duo, a massive hit. The prospective couple do actually meet face to face early on but Mail otherwise repeats the earlier feature's gentle, extended tease of saving its romantic resolution until the final, gauzy shot.

The underlying narrative is an even more old-fashioned romantic pas de deux that is casually hooked to a newfangled device. The script, cowritten by the director and her sister, Delia Ephron, updates and relocates the Ernst Lubitsch classic, The Shop Around the Corner, to contemporary Manhattan, where Joe Fox (Hanks) is a cheerfully rapacious merchant whose chain of book superstores is gobbling up smaller, more specialized shops such as the children's bookstore owned by Kathleen Kelly (Ryan). Their lives run in close parallel in the same idealized neighbourhood yet they first meet anonymously, online, where they gradually nurture a warm, even intimate correspondence. As they begin to wonder whether this e-mail flirtation might lead them to be soul mates, however, they meet and clash over their colliding business fortunes.

It's no small testament to the two stars that we wind up liking and caring about them despite the inevitable (and highly manipulative) arc of the plot. Although their chemistry transcended the consciously improbable romantic premise of Sleepless, enabling director Ephron to attain a kind of amorous soufflé, this time around there's a slow leak that considerably deflates the affair. Less credulous viewers will challenge Joe's logic in prolonging the concealment of his online identity from Kathleen, and may shake their heads at Ephron's reinvention of Manhattan as a spotless, sun-dappled wonderland where everybody lives in million-dollar apartments and colour co-ordinates their wardrobes for cocktail parties. --Sam Sutherland

I meant to watch this when it first came out but for one reason and another, I forgot and didn't watch it until suddenly it's what? Twenty years later? I found myself smiling throughout this film. The story is, like Kathleen's mother, charming. I like the idea of two people who fall in love over the Internet with Windows 97 as their matchmaker. On the other hand, I hate that business could be such a horror between them. Especially as these days, the big discount bookshops are finding it so hard to compete with Amazon. (Although of course, Amazon doesn't have sofas or branches of Costa and it's pretty rare that authors pop into Amazon to buy books and neither do buskers play outside Amazon's front doors.)

Ahh, such delight. I love bookshops but I miss the independents that are disappearing. I love Colletts and Dillons and Heffers and even Bookmarks.. But I've wandered off topic haven't I? Just like Joe Fox. Oh well.

Others have reviewed the film, I'll go for the practical bit

1) Sent quickly from US - no custom charges seem to apply

2) Can't confirm about all regions - but certainly works on a UK blu ray player (not hacked or region free player)

3) One of the "special features" is a DVD of "The Shop Around The Corner" that the film is based around - it says on the DVD its region 1 but again seems to be region free as worked in 2 non hacked / not region free DVD players (I checked it in 2 as I couldn't believe it worked!)

Good purchase!

This is a top movie. I'm dumbfounded by the way the plot evolves, as Joe (Hanks) gently reveals his real identity to Kathleen (Ryan).
