Does the phrase “You’ve Got Mail” mean anything to you? For those of us of a certain age, we never will forget that exciting phrase that was uttered every time we had mail on AOL! And those of us who were really dialed into the 90s know that this phrase was even turned into a romance movie starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. While some people mocked a movie based on an AOL when it came out romance out, You’ve Got Mail turned out to be a classic romantic comedy that stood the test of time.
I didn’t really like the movie You’ve Got Mail when it came out (it felt like too much of a commercial for AOL at the time), but it’s grown on me over the years. It’s such a sweet story, and the nostalgia appeal alone is there at this point. The dialog is spot on… thanks Nora Ephron! Plus, you can’t get much better than autumn, the holidays, and spring in New York City. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan give such charming performances in You’ve Got Mail, and if you happen to be a Parker Posey fan, she’s got an amazing small part in this movie too.
Since we’re just about to get into autumn, I thought this would be the perfect time to write a quiz about You’ve Got Mail: What You’ve Got Mail Character Are You? If you like a classic love story or miss the 90s, then you’ve got to check out You’ve Got Mail. Definitely watch the movie before taking this quiz – makes much more sense that way.
Give this quiz it a go, and let me know what you think of your result? Are you also a fan of this movie? Are there any other romantic comedies you’d like to see me write a quiz about?
