One little comment
This was an all right movie, but can I make just one little observation? If the movie is trying to make a social statement about big book chains with no personality (like Hank's Fox Books) greedily driving the little stores with charm (like Ryan's Shop around the Corner) out of business, how is it that the filmmakers chose to put every other scene in a Starbucks? Starbucks has undoubtedly forced more little shops out of business that any big book chain has.

This doesn't mean that it's not an enjoyabe movie. But it takes something away from Meg's righteous indignation when she woefully closes the bookstore and then goes to suck down a Mochacino.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Kathleen's bookstore is The Shop Around The Corner, an homage to the movie this is based on.


Quotes

Joe Fox: I'm sure you must be late for something: volunteering at the Henry Street Settlement, or rolling bandages for Bosnian Refugees.
Gillian Quinn: I am. I'm having my eggs harvested.
Joe Fox: And getting those eggs harvested.


Goofs

When typing a message about The Godfather (1972), Joe types "Don't lose you're nerve." It should read, "Don't lose your nerve".


Crazy Credits

The opening credits are used with a computer mouse and computer animation. The very end of the film has a blue computer screen background with THE END typed in


Alternate Versions

Several scenes were originally scripted and partly filmed but not included in the final cut:

  • A scene in which Kathleen gets involved with two garbagemen and first gets tongue-tied.
  • Extended scenes referring to the roof-top murderer including a love affair with George.
  • A scene with Kathleen and Christina talking about falling in love.
  • Extended scenes that characterize Patricia: a presentation of an author (the woman in the later elevator scene)
  • Extended scenes that characterize Frank: he meets an famous author whom he adores.
  • Scenes on Kathleen's and Joe's childhood.
  • A scene in which Joe explains Annabel why the Shop Around the Corner had to close.
