Parker Posey was in You Got Mail?

Luke said...

She sure was! She was Tom Hanks' high-powered, pill-popping girlfriend prior to Meg Ryan. She's a hoot!

I love Lisa Kudrow's work with Don Roos. She's proved what an underrated actress she is in the movies time and time again with him.

I really DON'T like You Got Mail...at all. To wrack my brain, I liked Geoffrey Rush in both his film and Fiennes (he was supporting in Elizabeth. Right?) And of course Judi and Imelda in Shakespeare in Love and Laura in The Truman Show.
