Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in Nora Ephron's wonderfully romantic comedy about two people drawn together by destiny. Hanks stars as Sam Baldwin, a widowed father who, thanks to the wiles of his worried son, becomes a reluctant guest on a radio call-in show. He's an instant hit with thousands of female listeners who deluge his Seattle home with letters of comfort. Meanwhile, inspired in equal parts by Sam's story and by classic Hollywood romance, writer Annie Reed (Ryan) becomes convinced that it's her destiny to meet Sam. There are just two problems: Annie's engaged to someone else and Sam doesn't know yet that they're made for each other. Co-starring Rosie O'Donnell, Rita Wilson and Rob Reiner.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Sleepless in Seattle is an Oscar-nominated 1993 romantic "dramedy" about a widower whose son calls a relationship-centered talk show to help him find love. Families in the early stages of grieving the death of a loved one in the family should avoid this movie, as it centers on a man whose wife passed young to cancer, and he's still trying to cope from day to day. There is some open talk of sex between the father and the young boy. In a moment of anger and frustration, Sam the father tells his son that the reason he's trying to date a woman he's not very interested is because, "I'm getting laid." He then talks of how he has slept with eight women his entire life. In an earlier scene, Jonah asks about his father having sex; when Sam asks how Jonah knows about sex, he mentions how a friend has cable. Infrequent profanity: "s--t."
