You've Got Mail (1998) REVIEW | Flashback Flicks Podcast

59 minutes

In this episode of Flashback Flicks we review the FINAL MOVIE IN OUR FEBRUARY MEG-ATHON! The 1998 period piece You've Got Mail

Synopsis: Struggling boutique bookseller Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) hates Joe Fox (Tom Hanks), the owner of a corporate Foxbooks chain store that just moved in across the street. When they meet online, however, they begin an intense and anonymous Internet romance, oblivious of each other's true identity. Eventually Joe learns that the enchanting woman he's involved with is actually his business rival. He must now struggle to reconcile his real-life dislike for her with the cyber love he's come to feel.

In this review we discuss the making of You've Got Mail, we building upon our PREVIOUS headcanon, and we tie this beautiful love story to a crime syndicate (because that's the kind of people we are). So tell your sibling to get off the phone so you can get online and get ready for our review of You've Got Mail.

Favorite Quotes

Kathleen Kelly: [in an email to Joe Fox] 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.

Kathleen Kelly: When you read a book as a child, it becomes a part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your whole life does.
