Multiple Academy Award winner Tom Hanks reunites with his Sleepless in Seattle co-star, Meg Ryan, and director, Nora Ephron, to discover love at first byte in this on-line romantic comedy. Strangers Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly live and work near each other on New York's Upper West Side. Though involved in seemingly satisfying relationships, Joe and Kathleen meet anonymously in an Internet chat room and find themselves confiding their innermost secrets--everything except their identities. But back in the real world, the opening of Joe's new Fox Books superstore a few blocks away from Kathleen's little family-owned bookstore threatens their burgeoning romance.

Predictable-but-sweet romantic comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this 1998 romantic comedy may seem old-fashioned to teen viewers, especially given the technology -- dial-up Internet access and AOL chat rooms -- at the heart of its plot. But they’ll likely find it entertaining, too, and still relatable. There’s a chain-stores-versus-independent-stores debate that may give young viewers pause (but would surely be informative). Plus, expect some discussions about infidelity and cybersex.
