When Joe and Kathleen are at the green market and they sit down to talk, she tells him "I hope your mango is ripe".

I was pleasantly surprised to find "Mail" not to be a rehash of "Sleepless." Ryan and Hanks do work exceptionally well together! Three-quarters into the movie I was wondering how they would ever pull off a romantic and yet believable ending, but the scene at the garden was one of those perfect moments in filmmaking. It just rang true and consistent with the story.
I really enjoyed this one! (And hearing Harry Nilsson's music again, used so beautifully, was icing on the cake!)
