Someone you pass on the street may already be the love of your life.
At odds in life... in love on-line.

This is the third time that Meg and Tom act together, the previous two being: Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)
and Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
The store used for Fox Books is the old Barney's department store at 17th street and 7th avenue in Manhattan.
The scene where Joe accidentally closes the door of Kathleen's shop on the balloons was unscripted. Tom Hanks
actually did that, and adlibbed the line, "Good thing it wasn't the fish." The director thought it was so
funny that she kept it in.
'Meg Ryan''s character, Kathleen Kelly, uses a Macintosh PowerBook G3 "Kanga", (introduced 11/97), or a
Macintosh PowerBook 3400c, (introduced 2/97) in the movie. The exact model she used can't be determined from
looking at the outer plastic case, as both machines used the same plastic case.
The song at the end of the film when they are standing on the bridge is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". A clip
of this song is played in the previous movie with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, "Sleepless in Seattle".
Joe Fox: You're crazy about him...
Kathleen Kelly: Yes. I am.
Joe Fox: Then why don't you run off with him? What are you waiting for?
Kathleen Kelly: I don't actually know him.
Joe Fox: Really?
Kathleen Kelly: We only know each other - oh, God, you're not going to believe this...
