2. Because Meg Ryan was at peak levels of charming.

4. Because, let’s face it, this reunion was long overdue.

5. Plus, it set the stage for THIS reunion.

You’ve Got Mail is the second-best romantic comedy of all time, FYI.

6. Listen, Tom and Meg are so MFEO that we didn’t even root for Bill Pullman.

That is a rare, rare thing.
