YOU’VE GOT MAIL (1998) GEM, 8.40PM, PG, RO­MANCE

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

As writer of When Harry Met Sally and di­rec­tor of Sleep­less in Seat­tle, the late Nora Ephron was recog­nised as a leader in the ro­man­tic com­edy field. This was Ephron’s sec­ond bite at the cherry as writer and di­rec­tor, but the cherry be­came a lit­tle sour. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan (both pic­tured) are true en­e­mies in their shared pro­fes­sion, but are the best of friends in cy­ber­world. The key is not the des­ti­na­tion but the jour­ney and those who take the in­vi­ta­tion will be swept up in feel­good waves of ro­mance and sweet­ness. Ephron did bet­ter with Julie&Ju­lia (2009). ★★★
