You've Got Mail

Hundreds of movies come out every year, but there are few that I truly enjoy and could watch over and over...to name a few - One Fine Day, Ocean's Eleven, Disney's 1953 cartoon Peter Pan, the original Parent Trap, and my all-time favorite, You've Got Mail.

You've Got Mail. Oh, how I adore this movie. Honestly, I can quote the script word for word - not annoying at all if you're the other person watching it with me! Ha!

Released in the winter of 1998, I remember going to see it in the theater. It's a true romantic comedy at its finest. Classic. Tom Hanks. Meg Ryan (before she plumped her lips). Greg Kinnear. Steve Zahn. Parker Posey. Heather Burns. Dave Chappelle. What a great cast!


What will NY152 say today, I wonder.
I turn on my computer.
I wait impatiently as it connects.
I go online, and my breath catches in my chest
until I hear three little words:
You've got mail.
I hear nothing.
Not even a sound on the streets of New York,
just the beating of my own heart.
I have mail.
From you.

Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan)



What about you, is there someone else?
No. No, but... but there's the dream of someone else.
conversation between Frank and Kathleen


I like Patricia. I *love* Patricia. Patricia makes COFFEE nervous.
Joe trying to convince Kevin (Dave Chappelle) of his commitment to his girlfriend, played by Parker Posey


The odd thing about this form of communication
is that you're more likely to talk about
nothing than
something.
But I just want to say
that all this nothing
has meant
more to me
than so many somethings.

What an AMAZING script and movie!!! Anyway, the whole reason of this post was to inform my dear readers that my favorite movie of all time will be playing on Lifetime tonight at 9 pm. If you haven't seen it, watch tonight and I guarantee you'll love it!

Now tell me lovelies, what are the movies you just can't stop watching?

Whitney said...

Oh my FAVORITE is the "coffee" line! I love that movie, too! I also love the "bouquet of sharpened pencils" line and how she looks back and sees the ghost of her and her mother twirling as she is closing the store for the last time! Oh, and I love it when Bertie says she tried to have cyber sex one time and she got a busy signal! LOVE this movie!

I am not even joking- this is the best movie OF ALL TIME. I also know every line, every note of music, every outfit, EVERYTHING about this movie and I find Kathleen Kelly to be a true inspiration.... I love it so much I blog named my husband Mr. Fox.

My current favorite line is from Frank "A hot dog is singing. You need quiet while a hot dog is singing?"

Classic.

Amber said...

This movie is classic, how can you not just love Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks together?! It would be un-American! :)

You're the first person I have ever met that has the Parent Trap on their list too! I LOVE that movie, I can watch it over, and over, and over, and over... you get the idea!

Also on the list is Almost Famous, Princess Diaries, When Harry Met Sally and Forget Paris. Ahhhh, now I wanna go watch them all! :)

I love You've Got Mail and Meg Ryan is just too adorable in this movie.

Here are some movies that I will never get sick of: Forrest Gump, Mean Girls, Clueless, Dirty Dancing and Grease.

Shell said...

I love You've Got Mail as well. I couldn't even begin to count how many times I have watched that movie. I also love An Affair to Remember the orignal one with Cary Grant. I also love old Doris Day movies. One of my favorites is That Touch of Mink.

teasinglydiverse said...

I *adore* this movie! I pretty much adore anything Meg Ryan is in :)

Risa said...

This is a great movie. I also like Sleepless in Seattle, Must Love Dogs, An Affair to Remember, and Ferris Bueler's Day Off.

B said...

Oh I remember loving this movie when it came out. I really loved how descriptive their emails were like when Joe talked about 'bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils' reminding him of fall. I also remember wishing that love was as simple as it was portrayed like when Meg Ryan found out Greg Kinnear was in love with the tv host and they were all cool with eachother. Sigh.
