When Harry Met Sally...
Can two friends sleep together and still love each other in the morning?
Will sex ruin a perfect relationship between a man and a woman? that's what Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) debate during their travels from Chicago to New York. And eleven years and later, they're still no closer to finding the answer. Will these two best friends ever accept that they're meant for each other...or will they continue to deny the attraction that's existed since the first moment When Harry Met Sally?
From the director of Stand by Me, The Princess Bride & A Few Good Men, When Harry Met Sally is an elegantly crafted, cleverly composed & wonderfully narrated romance comedy that raises a pretty interesting question of if a man & a woman can just remain friends without sex coming in their way and also covers many other fascinating ideas about relationships with a zestful spirit & endless warmth.
The story of When Harry Met Sally follows its titular characters from the time they finish school & share a cross-country drive to New York City to the next 12 years or so when they keep bumping into each other on chance encounters, eventually become friends & try to help each other through the various hardships of…
It had to be you, Rob Reiner. It had to be you, Nora Ephron. It had to be you, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. Why? Because you made it ring true.
True. It’s a simple as that. Now, there are dozens of romcoms that I’ve loved from the past. Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday, The Philidelphia story, The Apartment, Irma la Douce, and of course, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Annie Hall, and The Graduate. I’ve never identified with those characters; I’ve just bought into their story; suspended disbelief just enough to believe in them.
When Harry Met Sally is different. Rather than having the feeling I was buying into fiction, I had the genuine sense that these two characters were…
As a romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally is undoubtedly held as one of the most well-known, and well-loved of them all. The film improves on a rewatch - maybe because I actually understood the Casablanca references - but I also felt like a lot of the humour was able to hit better than my first watch last year. Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal are charming as Sally and Harry, and as a couple - have great chemistry which drives the film really nicely. The fact that this 1989 film realises that there doesn't need to be a 6-pack, nicely chiseled, handsome man playing the romantic lead - allows for the authenticity of dialogue and scenes to characterise Harry and Sally - rather than being stuck in the 'love at first sight' cliché. Looking forward to visiting this again soon, and hopefully loving it more, as I did this time round.

This review does contain some spoilers, but most individuals could probably guess the general plot even before they see the film.
I always find myself speechless after I watch this film, but I feel like for the first time, I want to write about it, so I'll try to form words to adequately describe it. The beauty of When Harry Met Sally is in its honesty. It's a rare romantic comedy that doesn't hyperbolize the perfection of relationships and friendships; it realizes…
When Harry Met Sally is widely considered one of the best romantic comedies ever produced, and no wonder why. This one is from the time when there were lots of interesting romantic comedies, and it was one of the ones which stood out the most, especially because of its unique charm and because, generally, it was handled wonderfully.
There are not many films which can treat friendships and romantic relationships so well and so delicately. Can a man and a woman be friends without falling in love? Is friendship stronger than sexual attraction? What is the difference between love and friendship? These are some of the difficult questions When Harry Met Sally dares to answer (even though, sometimes, they can't),…
Watching a film as sweet and funny as When Harry Met Sally makes me wonder what exactly happened to Rob Reiner and Meg Ryan, but more importantly it makes me wonder what on earth happened with the Rom-Com genre. I think most people will agree with me when I say it's the worst-served of them all by the soulless machinery that is Hollywood, so when I catch up on what is said to be one of the last great ones and it turns out to be exactly that it is particularly saddening. Reiner's film is cleverly written, features a damn near unrivalled on-screen chemistry on behalf of the two leads and is just...so damn likeable. The jokes are delivered so…
When Harry Met Sally is regarded as one of the best romantic comedies ever made and it's clear to see why.
Wonderfully written and brilliantly acted, When Harry Met Sally is a romantic comedy that both men and women can enjoy.
When Harry Met Sally is one film that I will have no trouble watching again and again.
Now, what to order for dinner. Oh, "I'll have what she's having."
Harry and Sally have known each other for years, and are very good friends, but they fear sex would ruin the friendship. - IMDB
It had been a number of years since I'd last seen When Harry Met Sally... and this time around it wasn't quite as good as I remembered it being. Still good, just the memory is a great thing sometimes.
This was right in the prime time of Meg Ryan. She just happened to be one of my first on screen crushes. Something that I carried all the way to probably In The Cut. After that she started fucking with her face and she lost me. Sad.
A great aspect of this film is the interviews with the old couples that are scattered throughout the film and tie in to the storyline along that way. The stories are amazingly heartwarming.
Hoy digamos que es de esos días en los que miras al cielo y piensas en como será el futuro, y no sé por qué siempre en este tipo de días me da por ver películas románticas. Esta vez, además de "Embriagado de Amor" la cual analice hace un par de horas, me ha dado por un clásico del género, "Cuando Harry encontró a Sally". De verdad, que no me esperaba una película tan buena, es de esas que te emocionan y te hacen darle vueltas a las cosas. El lugar de donde provenga esa persona con la que sentiras una conexión que no tendrás con absolutamente nadie en este mundo es un misterio, pero el hecho de encontrarla es…
cute movie just not my type
What a fantastical love story. I'm not the sappy type, but this movie really gets me, in my heart and my funny bone. Men, take notes, because you can really learn a thing or two from this movie.
i just watched this for the first time because it's a cult classic, and... eh.
the fact that billy crystal is 13 years older than meg ryan is weird alone, but billy crystal seems like a bizarre fit for a rom-com.
i may invoke someone's wrath by saying this, but i had to watch this in two parts because i started to lose interest halfway through. it does have some really cute and iconic scenes, but... maybe i'll love it when i'm thirty.
This is a predictable love story about two friends who start off in a rocky friendship, and throughout the film develop a love for each other. Of course the viewer thinks that they will always be just friends, but they end up falling in love, etc...
The film is about relationships, and following what is right in one's heart.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The first half of this is so great with its epic monologuing, but it started to fall apart in the second. I found the character motivations in the aftermath of sleeping together became unclear, the chemistry between Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal lacking, and the big moment at the end felt forced. I enjoyed the movie, but I didn't buy everything it was selling.
Easily my favorite romantic comedy. I hadn't seen it in a while, but it was as great as ever. The best thing on the film is the wonderful chemistry between BIlly Crystal and Meg Ryan because they make their relationship feel real and natural. Ryan's performance does slip once or twice, but they still play so well of each other that it's wonderful. But other than their performances, credit should go to Nora Ephron's script and Rob Reiner's direction, which makes the film move at a nice pace. Love it.
