    This is filmmaking as a minor feat of engineering, the kind where even the gossamer emotions seem like prefab components -- charm, whimsy, serendipity, all so many discs plugged into the hard drive. show more

    Hanks and Ryan are as appealing as ever, and Ephron's fashion-conscious camera gives the action a slickly attractive sheen. show more

    I just love when he shows up at the park with Brinkley!! I don\'t care how many times I see it (and I\'ve seen it plenty of times), I always cry (for happiness).

    I watch this movie just about 3 times a month and it never fails to make me want more Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan movies. I love the chemistry they seem to have and wish they would do another film together.
