“Packed with whip-smart, endlessly quotable dialogue and laugh-out-loud moments, its enduring popularity undoubtedly stems from the fact that it has genuine heart.” – Nikki Baughan, The List
Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) meet in college and spend years debating whether it’s possible for men and women to be just friends – all the while falling in love without realizing it. Luckily, their best pals, Marie (Carrie Fisher) and Jess (Bruno Kirby), and on hand to lend hilarious support every step of the way. A stellar example of how to combine smart, witty writing (Nora Ephron’s endlessly-quotable screenplay garnered an Oscar nomination and influenced a generation of writers), seamless direction (by Rob Reiner, on a serious hot streak following The Princess Bride), a swooning soundtrack (Harry Connick, Jr.’s romantic renditions of classic jazz standards like “It Had to Be You” won the singer a Grammy), and sizzling star chemistry (between the wry Billy Crystal and the charming Meg Ryan, who became the Queen of ‘90s Rom Com’s thanks to this performance) to create a pitch perfect, endlessly re-watchable romantic comedy, When Harry Met Sally … is the gold standard for funny movies about the serious business of falling in love. (Directed by Rob Reiner, 1989, USA, 95 mins., Rated R)
