There's no denying the chemistry between Hanks, whose comparisons to Jimmy Stewart are becoming annoyingly accurate, and Ryan, whose schoolgirl cuteness is finally taking on a layer of matured confidence.
Tom Hanks. Meg Ryan. A golden retriever. New York. Books. Bouquets of sharpened pencils. Joni Mitchell. Books. 90's music. The nostalgic sounds of dial-up. Books. And Tom Hanks. Meg Ryan. Books. BRINKLEY. Also, it's based off of a movie that starred JIMMY STEWART. And Margaret Sullavan. Within this movie, you will find laughter, tears, caviar garnish, references to Jane Austen, and 152 insights into your soul. And the lost art of Instant Messaging. (Seriously, why don't we do that anymore?) Could you be any more convinced to watch this piece of history? This cinematic brilliance? The masterpiece?! Now. Press play. Do it NOW. Go to the mattresses.
How Can You Not Love This As my title suggests, how can you not love this film? It has amazing actors, precious storyline, and characters you care about. Every time I watch, I not only cry, but text random quotes to my family who respond with quotes as well. Everyone needs to see this rom-com classic!
Simply a classic rom-com Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks and director writer hit it out of the park. It's a great remake of the classic and charming movie The Shop around the Corner starring Margaret Sullivan and Jimmy Stewart. But this was better. Great shots of the upper West Side of New York. And the supporting cast of Greg Kinnear, Jean Stapleton, Parker Posey, Steve Zahn and Dabney Coleman are phenomenal.

Rob Reiner's romantic comedy documents a very unusual couple. There's never been a friendship quite like Harry and Sally's. From faking an orgasm at the corner deli, to debating the odds of having great sex with a guy named "Sheldon", there's nothing Harry and Sally don't do together. Well, almost nothing…. At the start, they are two recent college graduates who meet while sharing a ride together from Chicago to New York. They decide that it is impossible for men and women to be "just friends," and when they reach The Big Apple, they go their separate ways. Several years later they happen to be seated next to each other on an airplane, and Harry tells Sally about his recent marriage…and several years later, in another random meeting, he relays his divorce…when they become close friends…so close that their respective best friends fall in love. At a climactic New Years Eve party, they finally must confront and embrace their true feelings for each other.
Academy Award-winner Judy Garland ("The Wizard of Oz," "Meet Me in St. Louis") stars as a Chicago music store salesgirl who corresponds with a man through a dating service. She falls in love only to discover he's a despised co-worker. A musical remake of the acclaimed "The Shop Around the Corner" co-stars Van Johnson ("Battleground," "State of the Union"), Oscar-nominee Spring Byington ("Angels in the Outfield") and Oscar-honoree Buster Keaton ("The General"). Look for the screen debut of Judy's Oscar-winning daughter Liza Minnelli ("Cabaret," "Arthur").
Meg Ryan (YOU'VE GOT MAIL) and Hugh Jackman (REAL STEEL, X-MEN) come together as star-crossed lovers who discover that passion and chivalry never go out of style. When a rip in time brings together a charming 19th-century bachelor and a 21st-century woman, the potential for an old-fashioned modern romance ignites. Also starring Breckin Meyer ("Franklin & Bash," GARFIELD) and Liev Schreiber (SALT), KATE & LEOPOLD is "a delightful charmer" (LOS ANGELES TIMES) and a timeless love story
