Tuesday, May 19, would have been the late Nora Ephron's birthday. Although she scribed and directed many romantic classics, "You've Got Mail" has remained particularly relevant thanks in part to the boom in Internet dating and the modern state of book stores.

At the time, Burns said she had an "Ah, man" feeling about the movie's messages of eternal change and the values of learning to adapt.
