The computer graphics at the start of the film were considered to be extremely primitive at the time this movie came out. For example, the wireframe graphics followed by the animation of the terraforming of a planet in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) was done sixteen years before You've Got Mail. See more »
