Highly influential, When Harry Met Sally revitalised (in 1988) the moribund romantic comedy genre, made a superstar of Meg Ryan, and in two minutes of heavy breathing gave cinema one of its most memorable scenes. Set over 12 years in New York, young professionals Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Ryan) go from meeting to becoming friends to, well--this is a romantic comedy. Benefiting from an observant and witty script by Nora Ephron, it also offers insight into the differences between men and women. More importantly it's very funny, though the most hilarious scene is also the least believable: Sally is really too conventional to do that in a crowded restaurant. Knowingly modern, the picture's snappy one liners, neurotic honesty and straight-to-camera interludes are in the tradition of Woody Allen's New York Jewish humour, a prime example being Annie Hall (1976), while the inspired use of standards not only made a star of Harry Connick Jnr. but started a trend developed in Everyone Says I Love You (1996) and Love's Labour's Lost (2000). Perfectly played, with excellent support from Carrie Fisher, When Harry Met Sally is the archetypal modern romantic comedy.
On the DVD: There's an excellent 33-minute documentary made in 2000 which interviews all the key players talking candidly not so much about how the film was made but why, and revealing just how much of it is actually based upon director Rob Reiner and star Billy Crystal's own experiences and personalities (the story about Reiner acting out the fake orgasm scene for Meg Ryan is priceless). There are seven short deleted scenes (easy to see why they didn't make the final cut) and a commentary track by Reiner, which contains a lot of space and does little more than repeat the information in the documentary. The anamorphically enhanced 1.77: 1 picture though a touch grainy in dark scenes is generally rich and detailed with excellent colour. Audio is stereo, and only blossoms when there is a song on the soundtrack. There are 14 subtitle options including English for Hard of Hearing.--Gary S DalkinSee all Product description

First paired in separate beds critiqueing Moby Dick with the punchline 'You're telling me that he would rather be whaling then catching a little tale at home?'
Then at Barnes&Noble she overpowers him and lays a big one on him to coup the only copy of 'Marriage for Dummies'.
Lastly at a stylish café in Florence they celebrate with coffee and cake as honeymooners just finishing their copies of 'In The Name of the Rose'.
Walking arm in arm as friends and spouses they walk off into the sunset.
With that much talent it's bound to make money.
P.S. I'm issuing a Restraining Order preventing Akiva from within a 50-mile radius of this show. If he defies this order, he will be sentenced to the worst punishment I can imagine: psyche jail. Only Denmark has a place big enough for his ego. I'm not sure what it is but I've seen it!
I think he's missed his calling: He should have been a hacker instead.
I'm not a guy. They do everything bigger.
This one is for the family library. Nothing explicit but it is a 15 for how suggestive and frank it is. Loved every moment, and occasionally need a refill!
The development of the two main characters, one initially happlily naive and the other seemingly born cynical, seen through a number of events (some"small" some life changing) is wonderfully brought to life. This is not only through the excellent performances but also through the brilliantly written script, all set against a wonderfully directed "world".
This film is a romance even if at times there are periods when it appears that this is not the case - this helps echo real life...it's not all chocolates and roses but when you finally realise you've met that someone special....
I feel cheated. I will be attempting to get a refund as the Amazon Instant version is NOT the film I know and love.
My memoir may also have you reaching for the tissues in places, but it will also make you laugh...Nothing Ever Happens in Wentbridge
