“Smart and funny… romance is still thriving”

You've Got Mail is peppered with Ephronisms. For Kathleen, Pride and Prejudice is the Bible. In Joe's case, The Godfather is ‘the sum of all wisdom.’ For the most part the script is smart and funny.  

You've Got Mail has the virtue of delivering exactly what's expected from it. It's a feel-good movie that offers enough comedy and romance to warm the heart without risking a sentimental overdose. If there are messages to be found here, they're that romance is still thriving in our technological era.”
