Meg Ryan is the adorable owner of an independent children’s bookstore who also finds herself corresponding with an electronic penpal in an exciting new service called “America Online.” Tom Hanks is a business tycoon planning to open a new mega-bookstore just down the block, who also has an online penpal. What they don’t realize is that their business rival and anonymous online crush are actually the same person!

Less hilarity than you might expect, ensues. The writing is just not as sharp or funny as in other romantic comedies, and the quirky friends are just too deliberately quirky and not enough genuinely funny. There are more opportunities Ryan-Hanks banter than in Sleepless in Seattle, which is not bad, and seeing all that old technology is kinda fun, but overall it’s just Watchable.

Superior alternatives: While You Were Sleeping, Sleepless in Seattle, French Kiss.’ve_Got_Mail
