The lift door closes as they stand
Smiling, hand in hand
And then they make it
To the frosty New York street
And find a coffee shop
Talking over life and love
They meet again in just a week
And married in a month
They have a kid
Almost get divorced
And Jonah tells them that they need
To remember how they met
The romance that could make
A movie plot, and so they kiss
And age together in a wedded bliss.
I just watched Sleepless in Seattle for like the millionth time. But in all fairness, I hadn’t watched it in quite a few years, and I had almost forgotten just how much I love it.
I know we got a second movie with the Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks combo in the shape of You’ve Got Mail, but we never got a real sequel to follow on from the moment when the lift doors closed on Sam, Jonah and Annie. Did Annie move to Seattle? Did they get married? Are they still together? And what happened to Walter?
I do believe that now is the time to start a petition to get the Hollywood movie execs to think about a follow up. Who’s with me? Who do we get in touch with to make this happen?
