While writing a sentence like the one below, should I insert a comma after "that movie"(to mean one and only film) or withhold the comma as it is?

Her life was a lot like that movie Sleepless in Seattle.


Given that you want to refer to that one specific movie, you would omit a comma, just as you have done. The title of the movie is essential information for determining the identity of the movie her life is being compared to.
