PattyG Help: Movies for a pregnant wife (38) RE: Help: Movies for a pregnant wife 22 Aug 99

PattyG, we took your advice and saw "You've Got Mail." We liked it, but had trouble believeing that the female lead would end up loving a guy who had repeatredly deceived and betrayed her up until the final scene. But I want to say how grateful I am to both you and Roger for the thought. (Or have I put my foot in it now? Are you regretting that you ever bothered? I hope not.

////No, not at all! To each their own! However, may I point out that(and for some reason I've had to explain this a lot) I saw this as an entire "learning experience" for the guy (Tom Hanks) because he was quite accustomed to focusing only on the business aspect of things. I felt as though I witnessed the softening of his character by her charm and even innocence. I would have liked the ending better if he had worked it out for her little book store to have stayed in operation, but the inference was that she would/could continue with her personal style and approach to selling books and encouraging youngsters in the joy of reading in the "big store." I saw it as a nice melding of the two ideal/extreme worlds. Not too shoddy when you think about it!
