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…
Part of Essential Films To Watch
"I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."
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…
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.
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…
I was very, very primed to hate this movie a lot because I can not stand that stupid "men and women can never be just friends" myth that this seems to mindlessly perpetuate.
But man alive, they don't make romantic comedies like this anymore. It's great.
My gold-standard, the one romantic comedy to rule them all.
we started out like this, helen and i. we had blank walls, we hung things, we picked out tiles together. then you know what happens? six years later you find yourself singing "surrey with a fringe on top" in front of ira!
Directed by Rob Reiner this film with a script from Nora Ephron stars Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan and Carrie Fisher. We follow a man and a woman from when they first meet over twelve years of their lives and how they become friends.
The plot of this film is surprisingly insightful and does a good job of exploring the relationships between men and women. What I like most is that the script is not overly melodramatic, has plenty of humour and never feels like it is giving in to cliches. There is one scene that is obviously very famous now but the whole film is well made and an enjoyable watch.
My review -- this film is now on DVD and it had a great return at the box office roughly speaking $77 million. Well the storyline briefly without trying to be a comedian is very much self-explanatory if my readers read the title of this review, but if you would like just a little bit more information? The project basically follows the two characters on their life journey separately or together. When Harry Met Sally… is most definitely worthy of being a modern-day classic, simply because it uses a very strong scripted dialogue which has a full range of emotions and when Billy and Meg perform together they give it character and in some cases comedy. The only problem I…
No Harry, you're just being sentimental because it's New Year's Eve.
No, Sally, you like Harry too.
It's like battling your way out of something, denying the things you obviously want.
I thought this movie was great for the most part, the ending was really weak tho. My favorite part was when they're friends hook up.
sweet love story :) I liked Mac Ryan's style!
