Ok this is a bit of a rant about Sleepless in Seattle - disregard as tis only my contrary opinion :)
Ok, so i've watched this film a couple of times - i'm nota 'chickflick' sort of girl, but when the mood strikes and something is on tv, who am i to argue?
So, i'm sitting down, and sleepless in Seattle starts . . .
Basically, a man loses his wife. Man misses wife. Son worries about dad.
Grand, ok i get this.
Woman marrying man. man right on paper. Woman begins to worry about Magic.
Ok dokey, fair enough, i'm still holding on
Woman hears radio show. Woman decides to write. wait no, stalk said man. in Seattle.
Woman watches man. from afar. pining.
Woman returns. Woman is in denial. Woman eventually breaks up with Walter.
Boy decides to fly to NY to meet stalking woman. He has never meet woman. He has only her (one) letter.
Woman and man meet after boy runs away. Hold Hands. Lovey dovey. Happy ending!?!?!?!
Eh ok, this is where i'm watching the credits going What?!?! Seriously, this film could have turned out a whoooole lot differently - i'm thinking restraining orders, stalking and and psycho ala Hitchcock background music!
The characters have never said a word to each other apart from 'hello' - yet they 'knew' they love each other?! this stretches the concept of 'love at first sight/voice' a tad?
God, this is why i don't write romance, i'm just too heartless for the genre lol.
Think i shall go watch the BBC pride and prejudice boxset now. . .
