You've Got Mail

Another Meg Ryan movie, which should sum it up for anyone who has seen any of her romantic comedies. In this remake of a old movie, she plays a bookstore owner battling a big-bully corporate bookchain moving into her territory. At the same time, she is having an online romance with a stranger, who turns out to be someone a lot closer than she had expected...

Visitor Comments

Shaun Myburg: So, it's Valentine's weekend, I'm single again and there's a new Meg Ryan movie out. It's asking for trouble I know, but who can resist watching another pairing of Meg and Tom? While most might consider this a date movie, it is a perfectly good choice for those who aren't in the mood for explosions, vampires and sex. This remake is a movie that is sure to give birth to a string of internet related movies, but if they have such good actors in, I don't mind so much. You've Got Mail has a great blend of humour and all that other mushy stuff to make you leave the cinema feeling good. As I always say... go see it and enjoy!

Graeme Smith: It is was way better than 'Sleepless in Seattle'. Hanks and Ryan was perfect in their respective roles. The script was witty and funny. A great Valentine's Day flick.

Isma Manitsa: You get that warm fuzzy feeling, watching this movie!

Renier Swanepoel: Meg Ryan -- Queen of the movies.

Rajendran Nair: Not bad

Claire Nicole: Not as good as The X-File movie.

Jacques Boshoff: Very good and entertaining movie!

Didi Ogude: Excellent!

Arauna Zeelie: Good, undemanding fun. A little bit too long for my liking - they could have rapped it up faster. Tom and Meg remain a good match. I found myself thinking of ''Sleepless in Seattle'' while watching the movie and comparing - compared okay.

Esti de Waal: Oh! Meg and Tom together are the greatest. Not bad. Happy ending!
