Last Updated: June 2023

Struggling boutique bookseller Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) hates Joe Fox (Tom Hanks), the owner of a corporate Foxbooks chain store that just moved in across the street. When they meet online, however, they begin an intense and anonymous Internet romance, oblivious of each other's true identity. Eventually Joe learns that the enchanting woman he's involved with is actually his business rival. He must now struggle to reconcile his real-life dislike for her with the cyber love he's come to feel.

otsoNY Comments: The children's book store scenes in the film were actually filmed at Maya Shaper's Cheese and Antique shop on 106 West 69th Street. The film makers wanted to use the antique shop because it had the quaint, homey feel they were going for. They sent the owner of the antique shop on vacation for a few weeks and while she was gone they turned the store into a children's bookstore. After filming was finished, they put everything back the way they had left it and it became an antique store once again.

otsoNY Comments: At the time of filming the shop was actually Maya Schaper's Cheese and Antiques Shop. After it closed, it briefly became Cafe Sonatina. Now though, it is a laundromat called La Mode Cleaners.
