It was OK. I don't see why everyone loves it so much. It wasn't very smart or deep or well-directed.

This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.

The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.

Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.

If I knew a woman who turned down a great guy for a dream fictitious guy, I'd renounce them. Thats why some people, male and female, remain single and lonely.

Writing a review for a movie which was released even before I was born is really funny.Too bad I hadn't seen it until today... Rom-com is a genre which I rarely engage inI think the last time I saw a Rom-com was "No String Attached" (2011)What can I say I really liked this film.It is a simple sweet story. Sam(Tom Hanks), has lost his wife and lives with his 8 yr old son and has recently moved to Seattle, WA. Even after a year and a half he still finds himself missing his wife and pining for love. Then one incident happens which changes everything.Surely one of the best Romantic movies I have seen so far, having usually seen the Tom Hanks in his Dan Brown films, it was weird for me watching him so young. Meg Ryan plays her part to perfection.The film is studded with amazing singles from the 80's. I loved the "Make someone happy" by Jimmy Durante.Go watch it you won't regret it!

This movie is sorta ridiculous, but I love it anyway. There's not much to say about it except that it's the epitome of what a 'chick flick' should aspire to be. Though I'm a guy and I love is as much as most.This movie hasn't aged all that well, but I still think it belongs on the watch list of anyone who enjoys romantic comedies, dramas or the ones like this that aren't really either one of those exactly but somewhere in the middle.It's a classic and there's a reason it is. Give it a watch and if nothing else it's a harmless little movie intended to make you feel good.
