... one more time Tom and Meg!
by Sturdy

For some reason, todayís Hollywood doesnít seem conducive to the on-screen couple. Sure, we can have some great pairings for one movie, but having the couple appear in more than one film is a rarity these days. Itís more common for the same romantic comedy actors to bounce from one another rather than appear together.

One couple that has actually appeared in more than one film is Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. There are many things that make these two special, but what makes them great together is their on-screen chemistry. Their dorky and slightly goofy ways mesh well on the big screen and itís a joy to see them together. However, we havenít seen them together since 1998ís YOUíVE GOT MAIL. Unfortunately, I wasnít a fan of that film and I really donít want them to go out like that. They need another go at it and a nice romantic comedy is just the way to go.


One of the all time best love stories

Individually, Iíve always loved Tom and Meg. Tom Hanks is great for all the obvious reasons but what in the world happened to Meg Ryan? Meg used to be the class of Hollywood and ever since her divorce from Dennis Quaid, sheís fallen off the Hollywood radar? I think she got a shitty deal with that whole mess considering Dennis cheated a hundred times and the media didnít care, then she strays with Russel freakiní Crowe and the media goes berserk. But I digress, this isnít a rant about the double standards the media continues to enforce, itís a request to get one of the greatest on-screen couples back together.


This one? Not so much.

Anyway, like I was saying, get Tom and Meg back together. I donít think we need some long, intricate love story that will bore an audience. I think a simple, original romantic comedy will suffice. Remember, itís Tom and Meg and as long as their on the same screen, most people will be happy. No need to reinvent the wheel with these two. Think of some romantic comedies youíve seen over the years and think how much better they would have been with Tom and Meg in the leads.

Aside from Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, there really arenít a whole lot of movie couples out there that work great together. Richard Gere and Julia Roberts would count, and I liked both of their films. But if they ever work together again, I donít want it to be with Garry Marshall. They need to branch out and try something different. Of course, thatís if you can convince Julia Roberts to leave the house. Speaking of which, why canít we get a good movie couple thatís under 40 years old? Is it a fear of typecasting or the fact that we really havenít seen a great on-screen couple in a long time?


Everyone forgets about JOE VS THE VOLCANO, but this wasnít bad either.

Either way, Hollywood needs to find a way to get Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan back together for at least one more movie. Theyíre great with each other and it would be a disservice to the general public for both of them to retire before appearing in another movie together. So címon Tom and Meg, do another movie already!

I think Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams might do well to do another movie together. And actually, a romantic comedy for Matt Damon with Julia Styles actually might be good. They seem to work and look good together in the Bourne films

I agree 100%. I like all of the Tom & Meg movies, including You've Got Mail. And maybe a good Tom & Meg movie is just what Meg needs to get her career back on track. Cause it seems showing her little boobies didn't do the trick.

Good enough

I think the world will continue to spin if we are left with the Hanks/Ryan films they have already given the world. You've Got Mail was cute the first time, but my oh my it has not aged well. Watching Meg Ryan doing her cutesy thing as she "shadow boxes" preparing for her showdown with the big box store makes me want to suggest she just get rid of her shop in some sort of insurance scam and take the money to find employment far from the film. And then GIANT ROBOTS attack New York while a

And then GIANT ROBOTS attack New York while a topless Scarlet Johansson leads a band of escaped cheerleaders, who were being detanied at camp for being naughty, in a valiant fight against the alien androids led by the evil and topless Paris Hilton (no not shirtless, but literally cut in half..an act we get to see in stunning detail in one of filmdom's most satisfying first three minutes)! From there action moves to the mothership where Scarlet Johansson and her fellow topless but brave cheerleader brigade (3 actresses to determined by national vote) battle Hilton's legs (which have now been grafted onto Vin Diesel as they need to assimilate to another living organism to stop total shutdown) where it all ends with a...oh. Sorry. I don't think we need anymore Hanks/Ryan films. Thank you.
