 Annie: [watching An Affair to Remember] Now that was when people knew how to be in love. They knew it! Time, distance... nothing could separate them because they knew. It was right. It was real. It was...

Becky: A movie! That's your problem! You don't want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie.

Sleeper Hit from the early Nineties which infused a fluffy Romantic Comedy with a degree of Post Modernism. As director/co-writer Nora Ephron put it, "Our dream was to make a movie about how movies screw up your brain about love and then if we did a good job, we would become one of the movies that screwed up people's brains about love forever."

Tom Hanks is Sam Baldwin, a widower grieving over his wife's death. His cutie son Jonah's idea of helping him involves calling a radio talk show and putting his dad on the air. Annie Reed (Meg Ryan) happens to tune in when this happens and she falls in love with him. Sam and Annie then spend the rest of the movie trying to find reasons not to meet. You can guess what happens at the end.

The film is a bit nontraditional in that the romantic leads don't even meet until the very end.
