"I said, as if this were Sleepless in Seattle"

Sleepless in Seattle was a 1993 romantic comedy starring Tom Hanks as an amiable widower and Meg Ryan as a winsome journalist, convinced he is her soulmate after hearing him choking back the tears on a radio phone-in. Obviously these two cannot be trusted to get it together by themselves, so in steps Jonah, son of Hanks, to make sure things turn out the way they are supposed to.  The movie was inspired by An Affair to Remember (1957).
