You've Got Mail (1998)
Nora Ephron copied her winning formula of 1993 (Sleepless in Seattle) and reunited the two most bankable and likeable rom-com stars of the 1990s for another clever, warm and saccharine fable about average Joe meeting plain Jane. The film is an ingenious hybrid of old-fashioned rom-com fortuity, timeless (and refreshingly undersexualized) characters, and modern technology acting as Cupid. Ryan and Hanks were in many ways the perfect balance between ordinary and unattainable, and Ephron knew well how to play them – and her script – for the benefit of the audience. That ending, even though it's more advertised and anticipated than most classical Hollywood endings, has got just the right amount of payoff to fit the investment.
