If "you've got mail" were a drama, this would be it
7 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is an okay movie. The characters were sound, the story fairly believable with everyday people and situations.

The story involves two strangers, a man and woman, communicating via the internet (like you've got mail). They are caught up in their own love triangles (kind of like how Tom Hanks and Meg Ryans both had their significant others while chatting), they share their emotions via an old record (I'm talking the kind with the needle). Finally they are able to remove themselves from their troubled relationships and are thus able to meet up and of course hook up. You know its coming, it wouldn't be a movie if it didn't happen, however the last maybe 3 minutes of the movie would make any movie watcher go WTH? Go get her, this part of the movie I didn't understand. But then again, Tom Hanks didn't tell Meg Ryan either. It is all for drama. Not a whole lot of funny stuff going on in the movie.

6/10, the internet isn't booming anymore, there's a lot of sleaze bags out there now, I wouldn't recommend talking to random strangers on the internet unless it is through some legit site and even then...maybe. I'm not a fan of the ending, I personally wanted to kick the guy.
