REVIEWS:





"Not since 'Love Story' has there been a movie that so shrewdly and predictably manipulated the emotions for such entertaining effect. ....
[Tom] Hanks and [Meg] Ryan are terrifically attractive, each somehow
persuading the audience of the validity of all of the things that keep
them apart and then miraculously bring them together. .... [Director Nora]
Ephron and her associates create a make-believe world so engaging that
'Sleepless in Seattle' is finally impossible to resist."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; June 25, 1993







"The actors are well-suited to this material. Tom Hanks keeps a certain detached edge to his character, which keeps him from being simply a fall guy. Meg Ryan, who is one of the most likable actresses around and has a certain ineffable Doris Day innocence, is able to convince us of the magical quality of her sudden love for a radio voice, without letting the device seem like the gimmick is assuredly is. 'Sleepless in Seattle' is as ephemeral as a talk
show, as contrived as the late show, and yet so warm and gentle I
smiled the whole way through."

-- Roger Ebert; June 25, 1993
