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…
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…
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.
There are certain films that have an honesty to them that hits the nail on the head every time. Nora Ephron's writing is sublime and her refreshing take on relationships struck a chord with a late-eighties audience that found Rob Reiner's romantic comedy the most intelligent of the decade. It was a film that had that perfect chemistry between its leads and both Billy Crystal's and Meg Ryan's best ever performances. They sparkle like the New York backdrop that sets the tone for a film with just that sprinkling of magic. Rob Reiner's film is the romantic comedy that every other has been measured against for the last twenty-six years, it's that good. The question the film asks of course…
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),…
Review In A Nutshell:
Loneliness is a painful experience, it is a position I have found myself for much of my life, and by this I mean romantically; love has always been something that I have failed at, previously it wasn’t for a lack of trying, I have pushed myself in areas of casual intimacy with other people, only to find myself silently rejected, possibly due to the intensity of my determination or I simply lack the appealing exterior qualities to create any sort of attraction. Though romantically isolated, I have never allowed this emotion to consume me, to prevent me from undertaking my…
Sigue siendo la mejor comedia romántica de todas.
This movie just gets it. It's dialogue is fantastic because the jokes are always coming at you and I was just rolling on the ground laughing. Billy Crystal And Meg Ryan just give these very real performances and havile amazing chemistry. There are so memorable moments that you just can look back and laugh. It is fantastic.
Old school romantic movies are totally my favourite. Loved it.
O melhor filme pra se ver no Dia dos Namorados. O roteiro é uma delicia. A direção tem uma pegada super Woody Allen do bem. A química entre o Billy Crystal e a Meg Ryan (linda) é ótima. E ainda tem a melhor cena de orgasmo fake do cinema.

So much more than a chick flick. This is the story of boy (Billy Crystal) meets girl (Meg Ryan). He makes the argument that men and women can never be “just friends”, to which she begs to differ. You get to see how their friendship progresses through the years, and who ultimately ends up being right. According to my wife, this was my biggest blind spot in film. While I may not wholly agree with that sentiment (I (blasphemously) still have yet to see Rocky), I am ecstatic that I took the time to watch this, because this plays to everything I like about…
I find the gender politics of this thing drive give me too much trouble to enjoy the rest of it.
Well this is awkward. I kinda missed giving star ratings. I think I just took them too seriously last time, so they are back! Maybe in 6 months I;ll change back again and go through a tedious hour of removing all the ratings again.
So romantic comedies are probably my least favorite genre based on how cliche they generally are, and as a result leave me cold and a bit more cynical to the world and to romance every time I watch them. My favorite romance movies are pretty depressing ones that deal with loneliness like Her and Punch Drunk Love. I would say the only happy romance film I enjoyed before this one would be Ameile, but only because…
Nora Ephron completely invalidates the need for Woody Allen with this script alone.
I've seen reviews hailing it as the best rom-com of all time, but it was too predictable for me.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
No idea if there is a list for this yet, but I think I will keep this as kind of…
