Thankfully, few to none of their scenes involve the annoying children. As Irene falls for her new butler, Godfrey turns the tables and teaches the frivolous Bullocks a lesson or two. Gaby Hoffman, as Jonah’s friend Jessica, is priceless in her few scenes with him. The only thing that bothered me was the constant references to the old Hollywood weepie “An Affair to Remember”. Is that even possible? Unfortunately, this movie was such a huge hit that Ryan was type cast as a sweet, romantic woman.
Bill Pullman, as Walter, is required to overplay his part, so that we know he isn’t the right match for Annie. The movie also has great performances, from the leads and from supporting players Rosie O’Donnell and Rob Reiner, as well as a very goofy but sweet turn from Bill Pullman. Many of the jokes are funny, the best coming when Hanks and a friend ridicule the weepy reaction of many women to “chick flicks” by sobbing as they recount the plot of “The Dirty Dozen. Annie doesn’t exactly love Sam but she just can’t resist contemplating the possibility that he might be the one, there’s something just too formal with Walter and she’s scared at the prospect of spending her whole life with “what if” questions. It should be more! Well, imagine switching the genders of the two main characters. An error has occured.
The cast were ideal.
Meg Ryan does not have the “evil woman” syndrome that popped up in later 90’s chick flicks The most notorious of which was “My Best Friend’s Wedding”. Acting and reacting to something you hear on the radio is one thing, but as Annie, Meg Ryan is required to do it for a good length of time. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in a movie where they are hardly onscreen together and yet we feel both of their characters infatuation. The actors and the sweet, romantic tone of the film really pull you in.
He is a good guy, and as Annie says to him later, “deserves better than me”. PG for some language Rating: It is here that he decides to take Jonah away from Chicago and move to Seattle. And he sees her and she finds her pretty. And at that point of the review, my only regret is that I didn’t see “An Affair to Remember”, I would have loved to juxtapose the two movies.
Is that even possible? Rebochan 23 Aleepless These scenes were perhaps the most crucial part of the film.
Jon, a young wanna-be musician, discovers he’s bitten off more than he can chew when he joins an eccentric pop band led by the mysterious Frankly, I got sick of it watching thousands of movies in the ’90s.
Throughout the movie, I felt sorry for Bill Seattpe who seemed to have taken his role somewhat seriously.

Sleepless in Seattle () – Sleepless in Seattle () – User Reviews – IMDb
Seqttle is a superbly acted, wonderfully written, flawlessly directed tribute to all romantic films. On Christmas Eve, Sam on Jonah’s initiative ends up pouring his heart out on a national radio talk show about his magical and perfect marriage to Maggie, and how much he still misses her. Although Jonah misses his mother, he wants his father to get a new wife despite Sam having not even contemplated dating again.
As an actor he is remarkably giving, and so undaunted when it comes to using and exposing what he has inside. It has all the ingredients one could ask for from beginning to end.
Apparently she’s one of many women who fell in love with Sam based on this lone qualification. Also Malinger is very good as Hanks’ son.
After his wife Maggie passes away, Sam Baldwin deattle his 8-year-old son Jonah relocate from Chicago to Seattle to escape the grief associated with Maggie’s death. She even writes to Sam proposing they meet atop the Empire State Building on Tom Hanks is one of the foremost actors of our time, but even he can go a smidgen too far in a characterization I thought he did so in both “Forrest Gump” and “Philadelphia”.
A few flaws, but strong overall wolfie-8 16 June No wonder people in Hollywood over the ages can’t get marriage right! And each film had an interesting angle. It’s not because it’s romantic–Casablanca’s one of my favorite films, and so are a slew of other romance movies. Surely, the rom-com witty sociologist couldn’t leave the fairy tale alone and ignore the possibility of two people falling in love without knowing each other, or without sharing more than two minutes of screen-time.
And I was grateful for some things I didn’t find in this flick. Coxer99 17 August I wonder if anyone else got tired of watching young kids portrayed on screen as smarter than adults? The film then cuts directly to Sam, who is an architect, at work, being given a card for a support group by a co-worker. The film also takes the right distance from its own concept by allowing Sam and Annie to “meet” at two separate instances.
