When Harry Met Sally...
Can two friends sleep together and still love each other in the morning?
During their travels from Chicago to New York, Harry and Sally Will debate whether or not sex ruins a perfect relationship between a man and a woman. Eleven years and later, they're still no closer to finding the answer.
Its like Annie Hall, except it doesnt have that neurotic self-loathing Woody Allen-thing about it, which is nice.
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…
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…
Now I know what my dad is referencing when he talks about "pecan piiiie"
This movie has given me false heightened expectations of love and ruined me forever 💀
"It's a song to reminds you that you have forgot those old friends," i guess.
Last year I went to Katz's Delicatessen since Xiao loves the movie so much. Xiangze was there with me as well. He is the best friend and also my love of my whole life. We didn't watch this at that time, all we knew is the restaurant has huge plate of sandwiches but didn't know how to order.
A year after, today, I watch the movie alone. I'm not together with Xiangze. My life cannot be without him, but we'd better to be friends again I suppose.
There's another place in the movie makes me like heartbroken somehow. Washington Park is a magical place but…
This was a movie everyone raved about and I thought would most likely be overrated and obnoxious. Yet I was pleasantly surprised that I not only thought it a good film, but I actually liked it! Quite a bit! I think it is my love for antagonistic/complicated romances where either party has lots of problems/pride issues. At any rate, this movie was hilarious and clever. I can understand why it is the quintessential romantic comedy! It hits all the right notes, but it also gave me some food for thought.
[I'll have what she's having]
I've known about this film forever, and yet, I've never seen it. I've known about the film, some of its more famous moments, and the names are all pretty familiar. Well, now having watched it, I can say that I greatly enjoyed it.
Story wise, it started a little rocky. Harry, played by Billy Crystal, is kind of a sardonic jerk. Meanwhile, Sally, played by Meg Ryan, is perfectly described by Harry as being high maintenance. But after a while, the two characters get a bit of fleshing out, and the two characters and their relationship become pretty endearing. It helps that the two lead actors happen to have great chemistry together, making it all the more believable.
Still can't believe I haven't seen this before. The state of the art of all romantic comedies for sure.
this would probably have been cuter if i could have separated billy crystal from mike wazowski but i just kept imagining beautiful angel meg ryan having to kiss a big green one-eyed monster
I absolutely adore this film. Everything from the script, to the soundtrack and the actors performance is just amazing. I will never get tired of watching this.
I love love Christmas and Christmas movies!!
Movies set at, around or a scene at Christmas.
