When Harry Met Sally (1989)
When Harry Met Sally is the ultimate Romantic Comedy. This is the cutest and funniest love story that I have seen in awhile. Although the story is completely unrealistic, it creates a great fairy-tale.
The film is about the comedic love story between Harry played by Billy Crystal and Sally who is played by Meg Ryan. Harry from the get-go is in love with Sally, but she initially hates him. They spend 12 years and 3 months discovering where their relationship stands. It is funny that their relationship goes from the hate stage, then to the friend stage, and eventually to the love stage. It is apparent that they will end up together by the end of the movie. Even though you know that it is coming, all the humor and drama in between makes you want to keep watching.
Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal are an unbeatable team on the screen. Their love seems very realistic and believable, unlike some more recent films like The Wedding Date. They have this connection on screen which radiates in their more passionate love scenes.
I seriously recommend this romantic love story to anyone who wants to laugh or to anyone who is involved in a relationship. It is 96 minutes of your life well spent!! On a scale from one to ten, I would give it an 8.
