Welcome to the Norwegian American Chamber of Commerce (NACC) – Seatle Chapter, a non-profit organization dedicated to promote trade and goodwill and to foster business, financial and professional interests between Norway and the United States of America, to advance the common purposes of its members and to facilitate contacts among its members.After his wife Maggie passes away, Sam Baldwin and his 8-year-old son Jonah relocate from Chicago to Seattle to escape the grief associated with Maggie's death.The ending scene in particular is handled very carefully.You could have had a big, romantic, tear-jerking moment.If you happen to be female, this is DEFINITELY worth watching.
The movie's plot starts to stretch plausibility at the end, but not to the point where it destroys the entire film.
Meg Ryan does not have the "evil woman" syndrome that popped up in later 90's chick flicks (The most notorious of which was "My Best Friend's Wedding").
She is very believable and actually does care about the feelings of her fiance.
What I particularly liked is that the fiance was not portrayed as someone who Meg would do well to leave.
Most movies fall into this trap-Someone is about to marry someone who is horrible and find that someone else is better, the viewer supposedly not feeling bad because the fiance was a jerk anyway.
