"Destiny is something we've invented because we can't stand the fact that everything that happens is accidental. " - Annie Reed, Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

Domestic Box Office Gross: $126,680,884

Synopsis: Sleepless in Seattle addresses the question; can someone you've never met or seen be your perfect soul mate?

Fact: Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan share less than two minutes together on screen.

Trivia: Sleepless in Seattle mentions the Soup Nazi long before Seinfeld. Annie walks into the office as a co-worker is talking about the meanest man in America who makes the best soup.

Movie Mistake: Having lived in Seattle this error bothered the heck out of me. The boat trip Sam and Jonah take from Lake Union to Alki Beach would have taken forever and is virtually impossible for Annie to track by car.

My Take: I guess inside I'm a big softy that believes in love at first sight, sound or touch. This is by far my favorite romantic comedy and I would wager to say one of my top ten favorite films all time.
