    My favorite IMDB trivia for this film is that Jamie Foxx was watching the monitor on the first day of filming and, upon seeing Jon Hamm, said "oh he handsome." It's a highly relatable sentiment.

    I felt extremely called out when Brooks drove into the cul-de-sac blasting "Captain Jack" by Billy Joel.

    When Harry Met Sally...

    ★★★★★

    The first time I watched this I was on a plane to England, it was August of 2016, I liked movies but had little interest in those released prior to 1964 probably, I barely knew who Frank Sinatra was and did not care at all about jazz.

    I loved this movie anyway.

    Now, after rewatching it as a person who cares immensely about Frank Sinatra and jazz and classic films, I love it even more.

    The best love story, the best romance, the best love letter to the greatest city.

    I liked when Debbie Reynolds ranted against girdles, that was good. Also her one song with her love interest (I think) was very nice but I had seen that before in some documentary. Pretty good background film.

    Since the election I've been thinking a lot about my identity as a Jewish person. This film perfectly encapsulates the struggle of the white Jewish American in deciding whether or not to openly claim their Jewish identity. We have the ability to blend into white Christian places without being seen as an other. Even though anti-Semitism remains prominent in America, and the world, many Jews have the ability to blend into the background, a luxury that other oppressed people don't have. This film deals with this crisis perfectly through Adam Driver's character.

    Can't believe that three movies in a row made me super emotional!

    I can't believe that this movie forgot to include the very important song "Fly Me to the Moon" which was played at some point during the Apollo 11 trip (rumor has it that Frank Sinatra cried when he heard that they had played it on the moon).
