Sex always gets in the way of friendships between men and woman. At least, that's what Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) believes. So when Harry meets Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) and a deep friendship blossoms between them, Harry's determined not to let his attraction destroy it. But when a night of weakness ends in panic, can the pair admit they just might be the perfect match for each other?
One of the classic Rom Coms
- When Harry Met Sally review by JD
Billy Crystal is wonderful. His character is ruthlessly cold and calculating but he does it with such a dry wit that it is endearing and funny. Meg Ryan does the famous fake orgasm in cafe scene with more guts than many would manage. This is a must see classic. Having said that it is a bit dated in the filming and direction and the acting is sometimes a bit theatrical. It is a good laugh and I'm glad I saw it.

Overrated rom-com. My wife enjoyed it - I didn't :(
- When Harry Met Sally review by RP
It's a rom-com starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal. It's popular, it's supposed to be amusing - but I didn't like it. On the other hand, my wife thought it really good, so who am I to judge?
The film has one supposedly memorable scene + famous one liner (to be fair, it did make me smile) but apart from that I found it old fashioned (it's some 25 years old), too American - and I have to say it, boring.
So despite SWMBO enjoying it, I'm going to rate it 2/5 stars. It's an overrated film.
