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…
“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…
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…
"Anyway, it's about old friends."
I've seen this movie a bunch of times, and everything that can be said about this movie all comes from the script by Nora Ephron. The dialogue is quick and sharp, it's probably the realest movie about love, despite it's out-dated philosophy on men and women relationships, and it's just such a good cry of a movie. I'll always be in love with Meg Ryan in the movie, and I'll always find some way to relate to Billy Crystal, every time, every year.
I'm being mad extra. I just really like this movie okay?
An old-school romantic comedy with a more authentic overall vibe that has become a classic of the genre. When Harry Met Sally... manages to tell the story of a relationship evolving from co-passengers to friends to partners.
Serving as a non-off-putting film for avoiders of rom-coms, the build-up of the characters and the actual plot is done masterfully, with the most natural of flows. Counting as one of its main blessings, the comedy is apparent just as much as the romance, if not more; let alone that there are in fact funny sequences, and not just some humor blended in it. Beautiful to look at as it is, the actors are putting out their big guns and thrive in terms…
I do love a great ending, and this is a great film with a great ending.
What a bizarre film to end my writer’s block. This came about as I was casually hanging out and the idea of watching a film was being tossed around. Netflix gets brought up and after thorough scrolling and vetoing of just about any other film, the film that ends up being chosen was “When Harry Met Sally…”. Of all things, why this? Needless to say I was skeptical, but I’ve learned over the years to not be too vocal about my preferences and just let whoever else is around choose unless they explicitly ask me for input. Nothing is worse than watching a film you love get ruined because you’re more worked up wondering whether other people like it.
My all time favorite romantic comedy. I love everything about this movie, the cast, the script, the directing, the cinematography, it all adds up my love for this film. The character of Harry is one that can be overtly obnoxious and annoying at times, but like a pesky little brother, you have to love him and he even sneaks in plenty of heartwarming scenes. Sally represents what almost every aging woman has experienced, the fear of dying alone. The soundtrack is glorious, then again, any soundtrack that has Sinatra on it immediately makes me fall in love with it. This is a film that I can put on whenever I'm in the worst mood, and it'll automatically cheer me up. I adore this film, and kudos to Rob Reiner for putting his mother in the infamous diner scene.

Classic filmmaking, cute story, good feels. What more could you ask out of a movie on a Friday night.

When Harry Met Sally 4/5: This was a nice little movie, Billy Crystal was funny. It was a bit slow at times, but overall not bad.
