e-m@il für Dich: Directed by Nora Ephron. With Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Greg Kinnear, Parker Posey. Book superstore magnate, Joe Fox and independent book shop owner, Kathleen Kelly fall in love in the anonymity of the Internet both blissfully unaware that he’s trying to put her out of business.
“Saw this movie on cable again, and have to say what an uninspired waste. Weu0026#39;ve seen this so many times before, and it seemed as if everyone from the Ephron sisters to Hanks to Ryan were just cashing a paycheck. No subtleties whatsoever. The ending really angered me, too. Was it just me, or did Hanksu0026#39; character spend the last quarter of the movie manipulating Ryanu0026#39;s character needlessly? The final scene would have rung much truer if, rather than sobbing and kissing him once he revealed himself to be her on-line paramour, Ryanu0026#39;s character instead slapped him in the face for screwing with her head. If you must indulge in such romantic piffle, you can see essentially the same movie by renting u0026quot;When Harry Met Sally.u0026quot; But then you would also get the added bonuses of performances that arenu0026#39;t so paint-by-numbers, some actual humor, and a few likeable supporting characters.”
