Things I Like: Sleepless in Seattle (1993 Film)

Sleepless in Seattle is a movie I hadn’t heard of until just recently. I was listening to a talk-program on the radio and one the people mentioned the movie and that it has Tom Hanks in it. Who doesn’t love Tom Hanks in a movie?

The movie stars with Sam Baldwin and his son Jonah. Sam’s wife had died, and his son Jonah hasn’t noticed that his father has still yet to recover from it. He calls a radio show about relationship advice, and the host then talks to his (very surprised and angry) dad about it. While Sam thinks the whole idea is silly, but women all the country want to meet him.

One of them is Annie Reed, who recently got engaged herself. She lives on the other side of the country and knows how silly it is to fall in love with a guy like that especially when she’s suppose to marry someone else. Annie sends a letter, and Jonah thinks she will be his new step-mother. But will Sam think she will be the woman of his dreams?

I admit the story is somewhat clever and very likable, but the realist in me is a bit critical of the film. Some of the coincidences are too big to ignore, and the fact Annie was engaged was rather weird to me as well. But it’s a good movie.
