Plot Summary

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in Nora Ephron's wonderfully romantic comedy about two people drawn together by destiny. Hanks stars as Sam Baldwin, a widowed father who, thanks to the wiles of his worried son, becomes a reluctant guest on a radio call-in show. He's an instant hit with thousands of female listeners who deluge his Seattle home with letters of comfort. Meanwhile, inspired in equal parts by Sam's story and by classic Hollywood romance, writer Annie Reed (Ryan) becomes convinced that it's her destiny to meet Sam. There are just two problems: Annie's engaged to someone else and Sam doesn't know yet that they're made for each other. Co-starring Rosie O'Donnell, Rita Wilson and Rob Riener.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Nora Ephron's Sleepless in Seattle is a feather-light romantic comedy about two lovers who meet for the first time in the last reel. It's a stunt, but it's a stunt that works far more effectively than anybody in his right mind has reason to expect. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: It's easily the hippest, frankest and funniest date movie around. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 2, 2009

Rotten: Mostly, Sleepless in Seattle leaves you feeling restless in the audience. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A quick check of the exiting audience found many smiling -- and still clutching tissues. – Joe Brown, Washington Post, Aug 24, 2006
