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?
“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.”
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…
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),…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This was cute back in the day and instantly iconic. The restaurant scene. The "I've been looking for a red suede pump." It was really a timing thing because if you look at what the movie is about--the relationship--it is kind of stupid. It doesn't hold up.
However, I wanted to be like Meg Ryan's character. Somehow she made being controlled and cute appealing. By the end it wasn't believable that she would succumb to (confused) love but that's where the movie had to end, I guess.

When Harry Met Sally is a Romantic Comedy classic directed by Rob Reiner. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan star as the titular characters and they are both excellent and I loved their relationship throughout the film because it felt so real. The script is really good with some great dialogue exchanges in there. The film is funny, emotional, and romantic and I myself had a good time with it. 7.5/10
Uma das melhores, senão a melhor, comédia romântica dos anos 80.
Seriously one of the best romantic comedies ever made. Sometimes it's just the movie you need to help you believe in love.
There are very few films I can watch over and over without growing sick of, and When Harry Met Sally is definitely one of those few. While everything I said earlier this year remains true, each time I've watched it I've found I take something different from it - in this case, it's the insights into the film (and into Nora Ephron herself) I've gleaned from reading The Most of Nora Ephron, which I'm currently in the midst of. She's put so much of herself into the character of Sally (and similarly so much of Rob Reiner is in Harry) which I think is definitely what gives it that realism that ultimately makes it so darn good.
(Although I must admit I will always wonder what the film would have been like had they stuck with the original ending.)
A frighteningly accurate portrayal of how we University of Chicago graduates struggle with this strange thing you humans call "love."
Rob Reiner knows how to make a movie.
When Harry Met Sally is a romantic-comedy film from 1989 but it doesn’t make you feel dated or old fashioned when you watch it in 2015. The movie starts with an argument between Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) about “whether men and women can ever truly be strictly platonic friends” on their way to New York. They start off as strangers and worst enemies but they feel attracted to each others and become best friends. Sally is a smart and she has a appropriate manner to everyone and also she divorced with Joe (Steven Ford) after 3 months of their short marriage. Harry is a guy who has an “idgaf” attitude to everyone that he meets and he…
