You've Got Mail

Guest Author - Caitlin D Neely

Youíve Got Mail (director and screenwriter Nora Ephron) is a classic 90s romantic comedy. But itís a lot more than just a romantic comedy. It really stands out amongst the rest.

Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) and Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) meet anonymously over the internet in a chat room. They began to email one another back and forth. Kelly owns a small childrenís bookstore while Joe Fox belongs to the Fox family who own a chain of mega bookstores. They meet in real life and immediately dislike each other. But they continue their relationship online all while neither of them knows that the person theyíre emailing is their sworn enemy in real life.

You canít beat Ryan and Hanks together. They were great in Sleepless in Seattle and itís true once again in this movie. They have amazing chemistry. I was rooting for them the entire time, of course. I donít know how anyone could not want them to get together in the end. Even though we all know itís coming itís still sweet and satisfying.

I was pleasantly surprised when Parker Posey and Greg Kinnear popped up. I adore both of them. Theyíve both got great comedic and acting chops. Iím very glad that they were dating the leads. I got to see more of them than just a small cameo!

Unlike some romantic comedies, Youíve Got Mail has a very believable storyline. Itís apparent that the screenwriter (none other than Nora Ephron) carefully crafted a genuine plot. She didnít play to typical characters but instead made them unique. Kathleen Kelly certainly isnít a damsel in distress and is very headstrong. Likewise Joe is not a jerk like everyone makes him out to be. He has his bad moments but so does Kelly. Heís actually a pretty big sweetheart.

The combination of a great cast, storyline and humor is what makes this film unlike your average romantic comedy. Itís a lot more multi-dimensional and isnít afraid to go outside the boundaries that romantic comedies are sometimes placed in. What a breath of fresh air YouĎve Got Mail is!
