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?
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 comedy films (even though I have to admit that lately, there have been some interesting rom coms as well, but there are always guys like Adam Sandler and his friends, who ruin everything), 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…
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…
This movie has been in my watchlist for a long time and it was time I changed that.
The movie is about Harry and Sally and how the meet in periods of time in their lives and finally fall in love.
Billy Crystal who I have seen mainly in comic roles is just great in his role as Harry. When we first meet him he has a girlfriend, is travelling with Sallyto New York, is dark in nature, thinking about death all time, hitting in Sally, telling her men and women can't be friends because men only want to have sex. Second time we meet him he is ambitious and about o get married, he has changed but not that…
1 of 3 in "The Meg Ryan Hat Trick".
Definitely the best film of the Hat Trick. Billy Crystal is charismatic but also looks like a bit of a bog troll, and lacks the magnetism of Tom Hanks. On the other hand, Crystal benefits from the writing being much stronger, in a film that indulges just enough in the cinematic fantasy of "New York" as well as the awww-factor of long-term love stories. It's a shame that Princess Leia is a box Carrie Fischer was confined to, as her comedic work here is great. Bruno Kirby is pretty good too. But we don't call it The Meg Ryan Hat Trick for nothing (and that is, of course, a thing that…
Muy woodyallenezca: diseño de producción, ambientación y hasta música... mmmn, también conversaciones simples pero interesantes. Es divertida.
I did abandoned this great website for the lack of inclusion of TV Content and my sudden addiction to Breaking Bad, but if there's a film that can take you out of a dark, moody and dramatic place like Bad's Arizona is the goregous, romantic and realness of the New York that serves as a backdrop of probably the best romantic comedy of many, many years. I'm so happy that I finally saw it, and let me tell you, it lives up to the hype. Thank god for Nora Ephron.
love that this is known for THAT scene and i loved seeing THAT scene in context even more!!!!!!!!!!! also harry is so gross looking and sally's hair is so perfectly 80's what are they doing together? unlike all other rom-coms this had no focus on anyone's actual career which was nice but also kinda disturbing, like... what did they do all day? also after they became friends they never did anything except see each other... the timing was really off like the 5 years thing was cute to start with but when that stopped it got confusing, where i felt a year should have passed it had been two months???
Me parece difícil escribir de una película así sin un poco de mí. Me gusta ver este tipo de películas, porque siento, que al menos con las buenas, podría lograr entender algo de ese complejo e incomprensible mundo de las relaciones de pareja. No ha funcionado, pero debe ser porque no he visto las suficientes películas en mi vida.
Me pasa siempre también que cuando mi edad coincide con la de los personajes que veo, siempre me termino sintiendo mucho más menor y mucho menos capaz de lo que ahí reflejan. Cuando tienen 32 años y me veo reflejado en ellos me siento como de 23. Ahí la llevo, no me vi de 17 porque al menos tengo un trabajo.
Es tan famosa esta película con su escena del orgasmo fingido que tienes que aprovechar que ya está en Netflix. Nora Ephron tenía el toque para este tipo de películas románticas. Dos tipos que no tienen nada en común y que al pasar el tiempo se enamoran suena a cliché, pero vale mucho la pena.
Las actuaciones de todos los actores está excelente, la química de los protagonistas y la música que ambienta la trama es perfecta.
Vista a las 11:30 a través de Netflix.
Haven't seen this in years. Makes me miss old friends.
Pues ya ven, todavía no había visto esta película. Bueno, menos el hilarante clip del orgasmo en la heladería, que se ha repetido hasta la saciedad. Pero en contexto tiene bastante más gracia y sentido.
Lo mejor de la película es Meg Ryan, claro, en la cúspide de sus poderes como adorable musa de la comedia romántica de los 90. Pero Rob Reiner consigue también que el personaje tipo de Billy Crystal, un tiipo listillo e ingenioso pero que puede llegar a ser facilmente irritante, nos importe al público, y sobre todo consigue hacer verosimil y entrañable esa relación que ambos protagonistas disfrazan como amistad de forma inconsciente, precisamente para protegerla.
¡Ah, y y sale la Princesa Leia! ¿Que mas se puede pedir? :-D
