Continuity mistake: When Joe is on the yacht talking to his father, Joe is mixing up martinis, pours them, and adds an onion to one, and then an olive to the other. The camera cuts away to his father and then cuts back and now the second martini has no olive, so Joe adds an olive again. (01:30:11)

Trivia: Meg Ryan's bookstore is called "The Shop Around the Corner." This is a reference to the 1940 Jimmie Stewart/Margaret Sullivan movie of that name, upon which "You've Got Mail" was loosely based.

Trivia: In the scene where Tom Hanks is visiting Meg Ryan, she is in bed and he is sitting on the edge of the bed talking to her. Right before he gets up for a moment to pull up the covers over her, (now, turn the sound up for this one) he actually passes gas. You can hear the little "pop", he starts to grin and then probably realizes that the director is going to just continue on with the scene, so his grin fades and the scene goes on. I replayed this over and over. It really happened.
