The mother of all romantic comedies, but not a chick flick
on 17 July 2005
Difficult as it may be to write a review for such a classic, I will do my best. By all means get this DVD, even if you are not a romantic comedies' fan (and just for the record, neither am I). Though some of it may seem cheesy and repetitive do bear in mind that this was among the first films in the genre and the source of many later film plots.
In my opinion this film is a masterpiece, for reasons that would exceed the amount of space at my disposal. Marvellous acting, original characters, plot that spans more than a decade and portrays how the characters change as they mature and come to terms with life and love, just to name a few. If you are among the very few people who still have not seen it do get the DVD, and if you have seen it than you know what I am talking about.
Additional features are not exquisite but still enable you to get a glimpse of this world that I had shelved. Though it is easy to see why the deleted scenes had been removed in the first place, they still give you additional insight into the world of Harry and Sally.
To sum up, good value for your hard earned pay, excellent film for when you are feeling blue. What are you waiting for?
