Very predictable storyline, similar to Sleepless in Seattle - the characters don't know each other but are destined to meet. They chat via email, but… More

You've Got Mail is an awful romantic comedy that is quite simply boring, dull and considering the cast, is a wasted opportunity. I hated this film when it… More
