The film is a bit non-traditional in that the romantic leads don't even meet [[spoiler: until the very end (except briefly earlier on)]].

As director/co-writer Creator/NoraEphron put it, "Our dream was to make a movie about how movies screw up your brain about love and then if we did a good job, [[StartXToStopX we would become one of the movies that screwed up people's brains about love forever]]."

Creator/TomHanks is Sam Baldwin, a recently-widowed architect from Chicago who's trying to start life anew in Seattle with his eight-year-old son Jonah (Ross Malinger). Jonah's idea for helping his father find a new wife involves calling a radio talk show on Christmas Eve and putting Sam on the air. Baltimore news reporter Annie Reed (Creator/MegRyan) happens to tune in when this happens, and she falls in love with Sam. Sam and Annie then spend the rest of the movie trying to find reasons not to meet. You can guess what happens at the end.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Annie manages to follow Sam and Jonah from Lake Union to Alki Beach despite them being in a boat while she's in a car. This either requires Annie managing to guess where Sam and Jonah are headed and drive at improbable speeds, or have an amphibious rental car.
