Storyline Heading

Two bookstore owners, a passionate young woman who ran a small children's bookstore. The other the owner of Manhattan's largest book superchain, a man whose enterprise could put every independent bookstore out of business. They were natural enemies. But when they coincidentally, and anonymously, met in cyberspace, they accidentally fell in love.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy - You've Got Mail is a romantic comedy from the creative team of Sleepless in Seattle, clearly designed to appeal to that film's audience. Viewers who enjoyed the humor, themes and performers in Sleepless will be the most likely to enjoy the film. Male viewers may find the film too slow or talky, with very little action, and younger viewers may find it too sophisticated. Generally a very good "date" movie, targeted at couples in their 20s and 30s familiar with the on-line culture.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
Notwithstanding its tres-90s-hip cyber-era premise -- two email chat pals fall in love online, little realizing they already know and dislike each other in the real world -- YOU'VE GOT MAIL is a very old-fashioned sort of romantic comedy. Like the romances of the 40s, this one is more about the chemistry between two stars than about the characters they play. The film certainly gets the rhythms and appeals of online relationships right, but that's almost beside the point. YOU'VE GOT MAIL is first and foremost a chance to watch two incredibly engaging performers together. Sometimes it's enjoyable just watching nice things happen to nice people, even if the nice people involved happen to be movie stars.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly live and work blocks from each other on New York City's Upper West Side. They both buy groceries at Zabars; they pick their coffee up at the same Starbucks; they roam the same charming streets. Joe lives with a brilliant, hyperactive book editor, Patricia Eden (PARKER POSEY). Kathleen lives with a passionate, erudite newspaper columnist, Frank Navasky (GREG KINNEAR). Each believes life and love to be satisfactory -- until they meet each other in a computer chat room and begin conversing on e-mail.

Under the electronic pseudonyms NY152 and Shopgirl, Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly find themselves confiding everything to their unseen computer correspondent -- everything except their actual identities.

As friendship warms into affection on the Internet, Fox opens his superstore, the latest in the national chain of Foxbooks, a few blocks from Kathleen Kelly's store, The Shop Around the Corner. With its discounts, huge inventory and espresso bar, Foxbooks seems certain to put Kathleen's cozy neighborhood store out of business.

Kathleen inherited her shop from her mother, and it's been a community landmark for more than 40 years. Now, with her legacy and livelihood about to be destroyed, she confides in the faceless friend she has come to trust and value -- NY152. And Joe, who unexpectedly learns the identity of his unknown confidante, also discovers an unmistakable attraction to Kathleen in real life as well as on the computer screen. But how can he reconcile the passionate, witty and kind Shopgirl with the guarded Kathleen who hates Joe and everything his store stands for? How can he reveal himself without losing her?
