    movie trivia regarding 2 modern classic romantic comedies

    I am beside myself. not only did "Sleepless in Seattle" share some story line with "An Affair to Remember", but "You've Got Mail" did the same thing with "In the Good Old Summertime"!!!

    I'm surprised Funny or Die, the Onion, or Collegehumor didn't satirize those two movies (SiS & YGM)...especially that both are chick flicks with the same leads.

    Hollywood's major studios are out of original ideas. All they want is guaranteed $$$. Indies are the way to go.

    You've got mail is a guilty pleasure for me... It's a total feel-good movie, despite being a chick-flick.

    This has been going on far longer than you have been alive. Just look at the movie "Alice in Wonderland". I'm not talking about the 2010 version with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, or the 1999 version directed by Nick Willing, nor the 1972 version with Peter Sellers and Dudley Moore, nor Disney's 1951 version, nor the 1933 version which included Cary Grant, WC Fields and Charlotte Henry. I'm not even talking about the 1915 silent version with Viola Savoy. All remakes of the 1903 film! And there are many others that I haven't even mentioned.

    I believe Brewters Millions is the story that's been recycled the most. Something like 10 versions of it.

    But most of those are sequels and continuations, with Brewsters Millions they keep remaking the same story.

    You've Got Mail is a remake of The Shop Around the Corner. They even called the bookshop in YGM "The Shop Around the Corner."

    And with superhero movie reboots like Superman and Spiderman to throw into the mix, I wonder how long it will be before they even bother with a new script.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.
