When Joe and Kathleen are at the green market and they sit down to talk, she tells him "I hope your mango is ripe". The green market in New York City does not sell mangoes since they are not grown locally. Only local produce and good are sold, as the produce is harvested no more than 24 hours before sale.

Saw this movie on cable again, and have to say what an uninspired waste. We've seen this so many times before, and it seemed as if everyone from the Ephron sisters to Hanks to Ryan were just cashing a paycheck. No subtleties whatsoever. The ending really angered me, too. Was it just me, or did Hanks' character spend the last quarter of the movie manipulating Ryan's character needlessly? The final scene would have rung much truer if, rather than sobbing and kissing him once he revealed himself to be her on-line paramour, Ryan's character instead slapped him in the face for screwing with her head. If you must indulge in such romantic piffle, you can see essentially the same movie by renting "When Harry Met Sally." But then you would also get the added bonuses of performances that aren't so paint-by-numbers, some actual humor, and a few likeable supporting characters.
