Did You Know?


Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) is obsessed with
The Godfather, and frequently uses dialogue from it to shape his philosophy on life. In the Coppola Restoration Godfather DVDs, Alec Baldwin claims that Hanks and Rob Reiner are both Godfather aficionados who have been known to host viewing parties where the attendees do drinking games and quote famous lines while watching the film.


When Kathleen is waiting to meet NY152 for the first time and Joe walks in, he puts his coat over the back of the chair twice.


Kathleen Kelly:
I could never be with anyone who doesn't take politics as seriously as I do.

Kathleen Kelly:
I have something to tell you, Frank. I didn't vote.

Frank Navasky:

Kathleen Kelly:
In the last mayoral election, when Rudy Giuliani was running against Ruth Messenger, I went to get a manicure and forgot to vote.

Frank Navasky:
Since when do you get manicures?

Kathleen Kelly:
Oh, I suppose you could never be with a woman who got manicures…

Frank Navasky:
Never mind. It's okay. I forgive you.

Kathleen Kelly:
You *forgive* me?
[Kathleen gets up and leaves]

User Review

One of the most romantic movies I've ever seen!!!

Rating: 10/10

I've been starved for a great romantic film and YOU'VE GOT MAIL more than
sated my appetite! I'd rank it right up there with CASABLANCA as one of the
most romantic movies of all time. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan have more
chemistry than a High School Science Department! This movie was warm,
funny, smart, and sexy. Tom and Meg light up the screen and Tom Hanks is
the perfect hero! The movie was 2 hours long, felt like 10 minutes, and I
didn't want it to be over! This is a definite keeper, and I can't wait for
it to come out on video so I can watch it again and again!
