Throwback Thursday! Sleepless In Seattle - You've Got Mail

Sleepless In Seattle vs You've Got Mail!

I have to admit, it has been so long ago that my mind intertwined both these movies. Yes, they star the same 2 people, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.  I must admit that I enjoy all their movies.  I was even lucky enough to meet Tom Hanks and his whole family at "Club 33" in Disneyland.  My brother-in-law, a commercial real estate broker from Orange County, had connections to this exclusive restaurant and treated the whole family to celebrate my father-in-law's 75th birthday. Tom Hanks and family were dining there and we were together in line.  He is just as nice in person as he is on screen... 

Let me digress.  My son, brought over a compact flash card and told us that it had pictures on it.  So we downloaded it and couldn't believe these images were from vacations we took back in 2002 and 2003.  Back then, we were still deciding where to retire.  So we took vacations in areas we might be considering.  The greater Seattle area was an area that we wanted to explore. So we did the tourist thing and saw the sights.  

The top image was the real houseboat from the movie "Sleepless In Seattle".  The bottom image was from our romantic sunset dinner in the Space Needle.

Look at that view from our table!

Here is a video that shows the differences between the two movies...

Sheri & Rick, those were a couple very good movies, and that was quite the view from your table.

Hi Jeff,

Thank you. The weather did play a part in where we ultimately moved. We got a lot of gloomy weather inland in SoCal during certain months.  We always liked areas where there was a lot of sunshine.

Hi James, 

I am sure we planned that dinner time for around sunset but I can't remember! We take that into consideration when we go to restaurants with views.

So true, Grant.  I never had an AOL account.  I wonder if that movie sparked the idea for dating websites?  Something to ponder...

Hi Michael, 

Club 33 is a private restaurant in New Orleans Square in Disneyland.  Not sure if it still exists but I would bet on it.  You have to be a member or be invited by a member to get in.  I am pretty sure the fee is similar to having a membership in a Country Club! You also get into Disneyland without paying a fee if you have a membership or reservation at Club 33.

Hi Nina, 

The weather was the reason we decided to move to Arizona.

Hi Joan, 

Seeing that pic brought back the memories.  I really think it is important to take snapshots in time to help preserve memories.

Two of my favorite movies as well.  Recognized that Seattle house boat immediately.

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks made some great movies together and wish they would do more.

Hi Sheri- I think I lost count of the number of times I've seen both movies. Did you ever see Joe vs the Volcano that starred both of them?  I'm with you about taking photos to save our memories.

I did see Joe vs The Volcano.  It was a quirky movie. But with those two, there is still the chemstry.

Sheri:

What a fun step-back in time! Unlike many, I never saw that movie which is hard to believe...guess I need to make it happen as I am a big fan of Tom Hanks!

Have been to Club 33 - it was wonderful. Tom Hanks was NOT there!

We just were lucky to see Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.  I also remember two small children. This was in 1997.

The weather in Seattle, as you mention, is a turn-off for many. But oh when the sun shines - what an amazingly beautiful city. I loved both of those movies too. And we spent an afternoon at the Space Needle with our grandsons and their basketball team a few years ago. What a blast we had exploring Seattle.

I agree about the weather.  When the sun is out it is something else.
