You ' ve Got Mail , Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan ' s 1998 romantic comedy, turns 20 today, and if we 'd send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils to celebrate, if only we knew your name and address. While it' s easy for some to knock the Nora Ephron film for its now outdated technology (RIP AOL)

" You ' ve Got Mail ," starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks , debuted in theaters 20 years ago today. Let us also ponder how Joe would even put Kathleen out of business with Amazon presumably breathing down Fox Books' back – despite their seductive cappuccino.

Ah, remember the good ole days of dial-up connections and chat rooms?

You've Got MailTom Hanks and Meg Ryan's 1998 romantic comedy—came out more than 20 years ago this month, and we'd send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils to celebrate, if only we knew your name and address.

While it's easy for some to knock the Nora Ephron film for its now-outdated technology (RIP AOL) or maybe being a Sleepless in Seattle quasi-sequel, You've Got Mail is so much more than that—and far outlives the tech used to help tell the love story of Joe Fox (Hanks), of Fox Books, and Kathleen Kelly (Ryan), the owner of The Shop Around the Corner.

Mum's the word: Mexico's López Obrador still hasn't congratulated Joe Biden on his win

  Mum's the word: Mexico's López Obrador still hasn't congratulated Joe Biden on his win The Mexican leader's silence has puzzled foreign policy experts and disappointed those who want to see increased cooperation between the two nations.A month after the U.S. election, Mexico's President Andrés Manuel López Obrador hasn't publicly congratulated President-elect Joe Biden. His silence has raised concerns in Mexico and the Borderland about the future of the two neighbors' relationship, the tone of which can influence trade, immigration, security and drug enforcement.

YOU ’ VE GOT MAIL is a classic of the romantic comedy genre; a properly sweet reunion for Tom Hanks and GETTY. The film has become a beloved classic rom - com . If you look very closely, when Meg Ryan ’ s Kathleen is buying from there later in the film, there’ s a sign saying “It’ s a girl”.

It's also love letter to New York. One to independent bookstores (and now, somewhat ironically, for the big bad chains that put them out of business). It's the love letter to all love letters.

Nora Ephron's Movies

Come on, this is the movie that inspired Mindy Kaling to throw a themed dinner party at Christmas, because as any true You've Got Mail fan knows, it totally counts as a Christmas movie. (Never. Enough. Twinkle. Lights.) In fact, she loves the movie so much she even paid homage to it on The Mindy Project, naming a bar after the "so stylish in that really understated hot Manhattan librarian way" Kathleen Kelly.

Yes, Ryan's wardrobe is a true star of the movie. And so is Ephron, who directed the movie and co-wrote it with her sister, Delia Ephron. Ephron, who passed away in 2012, was a journalist-turned-screenwriter-turned-director credited for saving the romantic comedy genre with her signature brand of wit and wistfulness. She loved love but was also practical. She could make caviar funny and flour floating into the air romantic.

Joe Biden's centrist dilemma: Police groups say he's gone too far left; activists say he hasn't gone far enough

  Joe Biden's centrist dilemma: Police groups say he's gone too far left; activists say he hasn't gone far enough Conflicting interests from police and social justice groups will test Joe Biden's reputation as a centrist as he tries to implement police reform.On one side are the more conservative-leaning law enforcement groups and unions – Biden's longtime allies after three decades in Washington – that now say the former vice president has and will continue to abandon the pro-police policies he championed as a senator.

There’ s a reason YOU ' VE GOT MAIL has become a romcom classic: It is knit together like a perfectly cabled sweater, with a nary a stitch dropped. Hanks and Ryan have heaps of chemistry, and though the fact that they fall in love given the circumstances seems highly unlikely — the plot’ s a little

And now, we're uncovering some of the best secrets from the classic, which is the rare movie that happens to be so era-specific (they met in an over-30s chat room!) yet so timeless.

(Elwood's agent tried to get him a voice credit in the movie...which was denied.) A legal issue the movie couldn't avoid however? They had to ask the woman who had the username Shopgirl to give up the name so they could use it for Kathleen's handle. As Ephron revealed, "She actually worked at an autobody shop."

In order to portray bookshop owner Kathleen Kelly, Ryan, along with her co-star Heather Burns , trained in an actual book shop. "We worked...[in a] children's bookstore for a week," she told Vanity Fair . "We learned the register so we would look natural when we got in the store." In the original script, Kathleen's name was actually Betsy, a nod to Elizabeth Bennett from Pride & Prejudice (which also factors into the storyline). Ryan had it changed, as it was the name of her character on As the World Turns . She also suggested adding in the twirling memory for Kathleen and her mother (We. Cry. Every. Time.) and the scene when Kathleen ends up pointing a knife at Joe after learning his identity at the book party. And when it came to Kathleen's now-iconic librarian-chic wardrobe, Ryan had one piece she insisted be used: That Marc Jacobs dress she wears in the final scene of the film. The costume designer, who was avoiding high-end pieces in the character's very feminine-yet-utilitarian wardrobe, relented—but did add a sweater over it. "That saved the dress for me," Albert Wolsky said in Erin Carlson 's book, I'll Have What She's Having . a person sitting at a table in a dark room: While it's obviously very dated now, the movie was pretty of-the-moment when it came to computers, chat rooms and all that jazz. However, one of its stars was a bit hesitant to embrace technology. Ryan didn't have a personal computer until she received a Mac PowerBook on set. Her first email was sent to Hanks. She never attempted chat rooms, though. As for Hanks? He once checked out a 2001: A Space Odyssey chatroom. Alas, no one else was in it. Fortunately for Ryan, she had quite the instructor in Internet 101 ahead of production.

But Ephron wasn't sure about the edgier look for Kathleen Kelly, wanting a "cleaner" look, per I'll Have What She's Having . And a crisis emerged shortly after filming began with the stylist hired for the movie just couldn't replicate Hershberger's work. "Meg was uneasy because her hair was becoming iconic," Matthew Shields , Hershberger's then-protege who was then brought in to save the tresses and the movie, admitted . He made the infamous 'do a bit more Kathleen-esque by adding some fullness on top, and trimmed it every three weeks. He obsessively took photos for continuity and became Ryan's secret spy as he would go watch the dailies, giving her feedback on her performance. a group of people sitting at a table: Leave it to Hanks to improvise one of Joe's most charming moments.

"You can see it in the movie. He came back all chubby," producer G. Mac Brown told Carlson in her book . "In the end, when they find each other in the park, he's got nice little roll. Very cute." But it was noticeable on camera, and Ephron wanted him to drop the four to five pounds. And a very awkward phone call was made to Hanks. Ron Rosenbaum sitting at a table: For Joe and Kathleen's respective so-wrong-for-them loves, the Ephron sisters pulled inspiration from real people.

"We grew up loving children's books more than anything," Delia Ephron told Vanity Fair. While it wasn't shot in a real book store, the fictional Shop Around the Corner housed 7,000 real books. Books of Wonder is still open and houses some props from the movie. Fox Books, of course, was based on Barnes & Noble, though the book retailer wouldn't let them film in a location as they did not want to shut down the store to their customers. Instead, a Barney's department store had just shuttered, so production took over and built Fox Books from scratch. I'll Have What She's Having estimates 25,000 books from over 30 publishers were trucked in, with Ephron requesting that all the books were stocked in their proper sections.
