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 Philadelphia 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…
Its like Annie Hall, except it doesnt have that neurotic self-loathing Woody Allen-thing about it, which is nice.
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…

My favorite Rob Reiner film has always been When Harry Met Sally, a romantic comedy that I never expected to enjoy as much as I did. It’s the best Woody Allen film not directed by Woody Allen. Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal’s quirky chemistry in this movie is probably one of the best I’ve seen in any film. Reiner is a director that is hard to categorize since he has worked with different genres: thriller with Misery, fantasy/adventure with The Princess Bride, coming of age with Stand by…
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…
Great, witty dialogue.
Ok, so I don't have a good tract record with "classic" comedies. I just don't seem to laugh during them so I had somewhat low expectations going into this. Well looks I came out the other side and watched a pretty decent movie.
Alright so I'll start off by asking myself "Did I like the movie?" The answer to that is a yes. I found it overall fairly enjoyable throughout the movie. I laughed a decent amount of times during the movie. I thought the acting was pretty good, at least by the leads. Overall I enjoyed and liked the movie.
How was the acting in this movie? I thought it was pretty decent overall. The two leads Meg Ryan…
feeelings out of ten
scott ur right. great rom com
The chemistry between Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan is impeccable and it has really good pacing. It's not too sappy nor is it overly sexed up, it's a very genuine movie.

Boy, the taglines raise some pretty pressing questions, like, "Can two friends sleep together, and still love each other in the morning?", or "Can men and women be friends, or does sex always get in the way?". If the film is definitively answering those questions, then it wouldn't be fair to slap the "chick flick" label on this romantic-comedy that is obviously made for guys in the Friend Zone. Before you fellas get too excited, it took delightful funnyman Billy Crystal over a decade to get out of that hellhole, and no less than in a manner much cuter than it would be in real-life. Folks, the friends with benefit game is not nearly as easy and fun as the…
Amazing. One of my favorites
