Crystal/Ryan/Fisher/Kirby/Ford ~ When Harry Met Sally


Nora Ephron wrote the brisk screenplay for this 1989 romantic comedy, director Rob Reiner made a nicely glossy New York story (very much in a Woody Allen vein) out of it, and Billy Crystal's unstoppable charm made it something really special. Crystal and Meg Ryan play longtime platonic friends who keep dancing around their deeper feelings for one another, and Bruno Kirby and Carrie Fisher are their respective pals who fall in love and get married. Ryan doesn't get a lot of funny material, but her performance is typically alive and intuitive, and she more than holds her own with Crystal's comic motor mouth and sweet sentimentality. Reiner is on comfortable ground, liberated from the burden of making serious statements in the lead-footed manner of subsequent features. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

4.5 stars. Rob Reiner continues his winning streak with this romantic battle of the sexes. His previous two films garnered critical praise and also a loyal following of admiring fans. Check out this list of films he directed before this box-office hit: "Spinal Tap" 1984, "The Sure Thing" 1985, "Stand By Me" 1986, "The Princess Bride" 1987, then this film in 1989. He switched gears in 1990 to direct the unnerving "Misery," starring Kathy Bates, then finally the wave of commercial success ended after the 1992 film, "A Few Good Men." After that, however, his work is hit-and-miss. So, with this film he can be seen at the top of his game, his enthusiasm echoed in the performances of his actors. Speaking of acting, I'd like to point out that Billy Crystal can't act. At the very least, he has an extremely limited range of emotion. Case in point: the scene in this film where the four lead actors are arguing about a wagon-wheel coffee table. Billy Crystal does what the late Walter Pidgeon used to do, and it fooled many a viewer into thinking he could act. Instead of showing emotional range through subtelty or genuine expression he would simply raise the volume of his voice. I'll speak LOUDER to show I'm angry! I have to admit that, with the right material, Billy Crystal can be very funny. He is a comedian, not an actor. Meg Ryan, on the other hand, has a much broader range of emotional capability. Not to mention, she is at her most charming here, arguably the peak of her popularity. At the time, she was a serious rival for Julia Roberts as America's sweetheart. This film is a reminder of just how attractive she was. Her intelligence, beauty, and brilliant comic acting is a highlight of this film.Read more ›

I think every girl would! This has to be one of the greatest romantic comedy movies ever - if you haven't seen it please watch it. I will hold my hands up, and admit, the first time I watched it, I found it immensely boring, overly long, and the couples talking about the relationships interspersed throughout the movie generally annoyed me. (They will make sense at the end)
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!

This truly is one of the greatest films of all time. The script is magnificent, the characters are brilliantly played, and the chemistry is awesome between every single character. It's not often that a movie, classed as a romantic comedy, is so thought-provoking and hits the nail right on the head when it comes down to the relationships between men and women- whether married, dating or just friends.
Can men and women ever be friends? That's what Harry and Sally debate. He says no way (unless they are both involved in relationships, to which Harry goes on about in an airport) She says of course. Two people have never been so perfect for each other, but they ignore this because she doesn't want to fall for Harry the Cynic and even though he believes men and women can never be friends, he truly wants to believe that they can actually be just friends-- no sex intended.
Anyone who has a question about their relationship can refer to this movie. It's funny, quick witted, and the revelations the characters come up with about relationships are completely true.
This is simply a pefect movie. It avoids the BS that alot of other movies don't and stays away from the cliches that are all too familiar in romantic comedies. SEE THIS MOVIE!!

I must admit, I got the title for this review from my wife, who long ago claimed "When Harry Met Sally" as her all time favorite and the best movie she had ever seen. When we were dating, I had to watch it and pass the test-- if I didn't like it, well, that would be the end of me.
But I did like it- a lot. The movie centers around Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan). We see them meet in 1977, when Sally is taking Harry from Chicago to New York as a favor for her friend (also Harry's girlfriend) They begin a conversation almost immediately after the trip starts where they discuss death, classic movies (Casablanca is discussed and even a section is shown throughout the film), and the ultimate question- can a man and woman be just friends?
The movie really is about answering this question. Crystal's first response is that it is impossible because "the sex thing always gets in the way". We see Harry and Sally five years later, in an airport, and then another five years later when both have seemingly moved on. Of course they will develop a relationship and put those friendship barriers to the test.
What makes this film so much fun is the frank way director Rob Reiner expresses what the average man and woman think about certain situations. Crystal is the everyman, who gives the typical chauvenist slant on all things, while Sally is as high maintenance as it gets, just watch her order something in a restaurant. The dialog never gets old, and you will find yourself smiling at the lines, probably remembering a time when you felt exactly the same way. Maybe that time is right now.
Both Crystal and Ryan are fabulous here, in roles that fit them perfectly. Ryan has never looked better.
