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?
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…
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…
Part of Essential Films To Watch
"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."
This review does contain some spoilers, but most individuals could probably guess the general plot even before they see the film.
I always find myself speechless after I watch this film, but I feel like for the first time, I want to write about it, so I'll try to form words to adequately describe it. The beauty of When Harry Met Sally is in its honesty. It's a rare romantic comedy that doesn't hyperbolize the perfection of relationships and friendships; it realizes…
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.
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),…
Watching a film as sweet and funny as When Harry Met Sally makes me wonder what exactly happened to Rob Reiner and Meg Ryan, but more importantly it makes me wonder what on earth happened with the Rom-Com genre. I think most people will agree with me when I say it's the worst-served of them all by the soulless machinery that is Hollywood, so when I catch up on what is said to be one of the last great ones and it turns out to be exactly that it is particularly saddening. Reiner's film is cleverly written, features a damn near unrivalled on-screen chemistry on behalf of the two leads and is just...so damn likeable. The jokes are delivered so…
When Harry Met Sally.. (1989)
Harry and Sally have known each other for years, and are very good friends, but they fear sex would ruin the friendship.
This film thrives most on its witty dialogue and cleverness in not sentimentalizing it too much. I liked very much other Rob Reiner movies and it would comes under one f his best after flipped,bucket list etc.. After seeing this movie only i come to know that charlie Chaplin had a baby at the age of 73 Definitely worth watch
Can women and men ever be friends?.
My absolute favorite movie of all time since I was about ten years old. I've watched this movie literally hundreds of times. In college, I played it every night before I went to bed (I'd always mute it during the infamous "I'll have what she's having" scene, for fear of my dorm mates thinking I was watching porn). Any time I'm sick or sad or bored, you can bet I'll be curled up in bed watching it. Even my Letterboxd name is inspired by it. I could recite every word of the whole thing and constantly quote obscure lines (my favorite being, "because of God"). It is just perfection. Hilarious, adorable, romantic, memorable. This movie taught me what love should…
not how i remembered it
Holy crap it's Princess Leia, again! Billy Crystal carries this movie for the first half hour but after that it gets a bit more even. The evolving relationship between the characters is entertaining to see and builds towards an ending that I knew was coming since it's so famous (damn Scrubs) but still fitting and satisfactory (though I preferred barguy's speech in He's Not That Into You personally...). Snappy dialogue, this is a well written film. The hell is up with Meg Ryan's giant hair though?
My all-time favourite film. Watch it. Now.
Surprisingly loved this movie, the structure is pretty conventional in it's storytelling what really sells the movie other than the terrific screenplay written by Ephron is the chemistry between Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal.
Although his movies don't tend to be anything other than conventional, Rob Reiner understands characters and story very well, and is surprisingly a great director.
i would have maybe liked this more if i actually liked the characters
It's funny, sweet and true. I fell in love with Harry and Sally, I love them.
