There are a lot of good points in this movie, for both guys and gals to know. So it's not just a chick flick, guys will get an insight into girls minds (yes, we do fake it occasionally) and girls will get an insight into guys mind (they want to sleep with every girl they see). So maybe that's a bit sexist. Tell me something that isn't.
On the second watching, I found myself really enjoying this movie. I find myself identifying with Sally - I am actually one of those annoying people who checks there is letters in the envelopes, and that the envelopes are stamped before putting them in the postbox! Embarrassingly enough, I do that. Plus the film is so romantic. No doubt some stone hearts won't even be able to shed a tear out there when the finale is all happy.
I hope one day there is a special edition of this out someday. (There is currently a 10th Anniversary Special Edition out of Sleepless In Seattle) But there are some good extras on this anyway - audio commentary by director Rob Reiner, 7 minutes of never-before-seen footage, making-of documentary featuring interviews with Rob Reiner, Nora Ephron, Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal and a boring (am I the only person who can't stand him?) music video by Harry Connick Jr.
Of course, everyone knows this movie for the infamous fake orgasm scene, which Meg Ryan performs quite brilliantly. All I can say is I wish it were that easy!Read more ›
