YOU’VE GOT MAIL (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

You’ve Got Mail—wonderfully upbeat and sweet romancehits all the right buttons in presentation, timing, and portrayal. The story relies on exceptionally well written dialogue lines. Despite some suggestive scenes, the scenes are handled with taste and the movie works, in large part, to the interactions between  main characters interpreted by Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Watch for Steve Zahn as George Pappas and the outstanding performance of Jean Stapleton (All in the Family television series) as Birdie. This is a good watch.

Big business versus small business gets a thorough examination by means of a largescale bookstore corporation versus a local neighborhood bookstore.
