SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE CAST: Where Are They Now?
Sleepless in Seattle was released in 1993, the year after I graduated high school. The film follows a widowed dad with an annoying little son (look, I know he means well, but he annoyed me back in '93, okay).
This movie is ultimately a prelude to Tinder before Tinder was cool, but with kids running amok behind the scenes. When was the last time you watched Sleepless in Seattle? It’s been quite a few years for me, probably a decade or more.

Basically, the son shames his dad into going out with some rando stalker, who had hunted him down relentlessly because she needed a good newspaper story to write. (Wait a minute, as someone who admits to kinda stalking somebody to get a story before, I'm starting to take her side. Who knew!)
I am going to watch Sleepless in Seattle this weekend. I need a feel-good and sappy, yet sweet kind of movie to watch. I want to get lost in the fairytales; I am envious because none of my long-distance situationships have ever worked out. HA!
At least this long-distance relationship between Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s characters had a really happy ending (oops, spoiler alert).
SIDE NOTE: If I had known in 1993 that a decade later I would be living anywhere near Seattle, I would have told myself, “Yeah, right, Toots. You are full of you-know-what!”
The first time I saw the houseboats where Sleepless in Seattle was filmed, I was shrieking like a fan girl. You can see the home on Lake Washington, and I’ve heard rumors that you can even rent the houseboat on Airbnb if you’re lucky.
