Straight out of the golden age for romantic comedies and this was one of the better ones. The only thing that could make this more typical for a rom-com from that time would be if Tom Hanks was in it. Some witty dialogue, but a lot of templating the genre as well.
If all I watched for the rest of my life were silly rom-coms with scenes where a Louis Armstrong song plays over shots of New York City, I'd be perfectly happy.
Review In A Nutshell:
Loneliness is a painful experience, it is a position I have found myself for much of my life, and by this I mean romantically; love has always been something that I have failed at, previously it wasn’t for a lack of trying, I have pushed myself in areas of casual intimacy with other people, only to find myself silently rejected,…
Esta película debe pertenecer a una especie de saga junto con Annie Hall sobre lo complicada que son las relaciones sentimentales de dos adultos, y aunque en la película de Allen básicamente nos mostraba sobre lo difícil que es llevar una relación mostrándonos a dos personas completamente diferentes, la de Reiner nos muestra las diferentes etapas por la que pasan una pareja de desconocidos hasta darse cuenta que están hechos el uno para el otro, por lo que no crea que ambas películas sean necesariamente iguales, si no más bien que son diferentes visiones sobre el mundo de las relaciones amorosas.
I know, I probably should be spending my free time watching new things - but there's something just so darn comforting about revisiting an old favourite, and on a somewhat wintry Wednesday evening 'When Harry Met Sally' was all I wanted to watch.
So much has been said about this rom-com that I doubt I could add anything new. It's a classic, and for good reason - there's a sense of realism in the conversations between Harry and Sally that…
Impossible to watch this movie without you jump to mind Anie Hall of Woody Allen. Plagiarism? Tribute early? Certainly the film is well done, the soundtrack whose atmosphere still sending us to Allen, is a fine selection of songs from Jazz, the performances make it very Meg Ryan in her innocent role, but the unfriendly Billy Crystal not paracer able to leave his true personality: pedantic.
Imposible ver esta película sin que te salte a la mente Anie Hall…
I thought this movie was very charming and funny, and the way the movie was structured was clever and interesting. However, I found the ending to be a bit generic. Maybe that's what makes this a great rom-com, the reality blurring with the fantasy.
I'M GIVING THIS MOVIE 5 STARS, I DON'T EVEN CARE.
This movie made me cry.
Yeah, so what, a bunch of movies have made me cry.
Never once has a movie made me cry pure tears of joy but this one did god damn it.
The dialogue was top notch. Seriously, so witty and honest.
The chemistry was top notch. I flailed multiple times because of how perfect everything was.
TOP NOTCH MOVIE.
Yeah, maybe my emotions at the…
the #1 romantic comedy of all time just saying
I can watch this any time.
One of favourite movies, and one of the few romantic comedies that I actually love. This is the best film that Woody Allen never directed - it has all the witty conversation, deep character development, and beautiful New York City scenery that Allen is known for, but this is directed expertly by Rob Reiner. The stars have an amazing amount of chemistry and their conversations are real, smart, and multi-layered. A perfect date movie,…
Very good rom-com with a good cast, When Harry Met Sally is a genre classic and one of the finest films in said genre. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan have great chemistry here, and the story is well crafted, simple and doesn’t try to overdo its idea and make things too cheesy for the viewer, unlike most films in the genre nowadays. The film has some good comedic moments throughout, and the script is well written and is engaging from…
"When Harry Met Sally" is an extremely warmhearted picture with wonderful performances from Ryan and Crystal. However, the overall pacing of the film is slow and disjointed at times and I don't feel the picture has all that much staying power.
