And it all started so promisingly with the whole phone call setup, but beyond that first half hour, this descends further and further into trope laden 'stalking is totally acceptable when they're pretty' creepy as hell homewrecking make it stop right now bull****.
Director and co-writer Nora Ephron has crafted an intelligent and riveting love story that earns its cinematic credentials with the fact that the two leads never share the screen together until the final scene of the movie, a cinematic ploy that alternately aggravates and fascinates the viewer as we watch these two people who have never met but we know immediately belong together, a knowledge that, at some points, might have you literally yelling at the movie screen because the leisurely pacing of the story and the fact that the leads never actually meet just puts the viewer completely behind this long distance relationship becoming a reality.
