Friday Flick – When Harry Met Sally

What:  When Harry Met Sally when-harry-met-sally-movie-poster-1989-1020470291

When:  1989

Who:  Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby

What’s the story:  In 1977, Harry Burns and Sally Albright meet right after graduation from college and share a car ride, moving from Chicago to New York, where they argue about whether men and women can just be friends. 10 years later in New York, Harry and Sally meet again and develop a close friendship and still ask this same question about how men and women can be platonic.

Where:  New York City

Why it’s amazing:  Due to its amazing plot writing, non-stop laughing comedy, and witty banter, When Harry Met Sally is deemed “one of Hollywood’s very best in romantic comedies.” The intelligent script, combined with talented actors, makes for a rom-com that keeps you engaged and laughing throughout the duration of the film.

What is bad about it:  The rarity of two sets of best friends finding love. It is bad because how often does that actually happen? It is a little too perfect.

Wonderful scene in the movie:  The iconic scene that everyone refers too when they talk about When Harry Met Sally… the one where Harry and Sally are taking about men and women being intimate and Sally faking…(just watch, you will get it!)

Fun Fact: The segments of married couples telling the stories of how they met are real stories that Rob Reiner collected for the film. Actors relate the stories.
