When Harry Met Sally... 1989 ★★★

For the most part, a delightfully honest take on love, friendship and sex with a hint of originality. In a lot of ways this is Rob Reiner's tribute to Woody Allen. Often leaving Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan to wander through chaotic New York City utilizing Nora Ephron's fantastic screenplay that touchingly explores men and women's views on love. At its best when we are able to indulge in their perfect chemistry that is a like a playful, and often extremely funny ,emotional game that has surprisingly affecting qualities. Like always, in order to bring everything together and satisfy audiences it has to go down the conventional path that is full of cliches and predictable plot transitions. That bitter freshness still shines through even when the sap has arrived, which is a relief that few other romances treat us to.
