Summary: AOL promotional vehicle with a romance thrown in.
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are abosultely charming in this 90-minute AOL infomercial that just doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But through willing suspension of disbelief, or ignorance of business and personal goals, one can appreciate the romance that develops. More importantly though, it validates the internet, finally, as an acceptable medium for meeting and getting to know people. Hopefully now I will no longer have to explain how people can meet and become really good friends via the 'Net and yet never meet in RL.

Summary: Sleepful in Seattle
Take a lame script and a total lack of chemistry between the two leads. Now make a movie out of it. It won't make any sense, and it'll be boring as hell, but I bet people will go see it anyway. The only thing keeping me from feeling ripped off by the experience is that I saw it on cable.

Summary: Love. Eww.
I saw it with my GF and it seemed to go over well.

Somehow relationships aren't very exciting to me, but I can't find any real faults with the film.

Summary: Another excellent performace by Ryan and Hanks
This charming movie is not to be missed. Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are reunited to give an award winning performance, in my eyes. A romantic comedy that the whole family will enjoy. Take my word for it, it is a great movie.
