Sleepless in Seattle (1993) REVIEW | Flashback Flicks Podcast

41 minutes

In this episode of Flashback Flicks we review the PENULTIMATE MOVIE IN OUR FEBRUARY MEG-ATHON! The 1993 romantic drama Sleepless in Seattle

Synopsis: After the death of his wife, Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) moves to Seattle with his son, Jonah (Ross Mallinger). When Jonah calls in to a talk-radio program to find a new wife for his father, Sam grudgingly gets on the line to discuss his feelings. Annie Reed (Meg Ryan), a reporter in Baltimore, hears Sam speak and falls for him, even though she is engaged. Unsure where it will lead, she writes Sam a letter asking him to meet her at the Empire State Building on Valentine's Day.

In this review we discuss production history of "Sleepless in Seattle", we building upon our PREVIOUS headcanon, and we discuss our confusions with 1993 technology. So call in to your local radio station, tell them about your sleeping trouble, then get ready to listen to our review of Sleepless in Seattle.
