The Shop Around the Corner, 1940 - ★★★★★

A complete joy, it's hard to imagine how anyone could dislike this film. More than 70 years later, it still seems fresh and embarrasses most modern romantic comedies which share the ideas but lack the charm, warmth and heart portrayed here.

I'm now also curious to see You've Got Mail which I imagine is terrible but really shouldn't be.
