Rob Reiner's "When Harry Met Sally" is for me,after Woody Allen's "Hanna and Her Sisters" and Bogart's "Casablanca" one of the films that I simply need to watch over and over.These three films have, for me,such an absolute "presence" about them that is difficult to explain. As for this film it is simply is the "standard" for which other romantic comedies should be judged! Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal have such real, honest chemistry between them (which is obviously imperative in a film such as this) that when on screen together they literally jump out at you. Plus, the supporting characters, especially Carrie Fisher, playing Sally's best friend,is a joy to watch...but than again, they all are! Including Bruno Kirby,as Harry's best friend. In fact the dialogue between Billy Crystal and Bruno Kirby at the Giant's football game ranks as one of the strongest scene's in the film....if not one of the most honest!
Also, kudo's should go to the cinematography which, showing New York, in all four seasons,especially fall, is visually stunning. An absolutely beautiful film to watch! The dialogue is extremely funny, not too clever(thank-you), and above all,at times, insightful in what it has to say about relationships and how we go about this sometimes horrible ritual called dating.Read more ›
IN a word, it is 'Spectacular' ! I had high hopes for one of my all time favorites when the Blu Ray release was announced and I couldn't be more happier with it. A waver free stable image, an immaculate print, lush and rich colors and no overt signs of the dreaded DNR or annoying banding. With only a few softer shots here and there (hardly any really) this catalog title is a cut above the rest and I would say on a scale of One to Five, I would have to give it a solid 4 to 4+ at times considering the films age. It really is a revelation and easily blows away all other released versions including the newest 1080i transfer being shown on pay cable.
The film and extras are contained in a 50gb dual layer disc with an average bit rate of 32mbps.
Motion is always natural and colors can become quite beautiful, especially the scene where Harry and Sally walk in the park discussing Sally's underwear dreams. While the film IS 22 years old and doesn't have the full visual wow factor of a newer release, it is truly a surprising revelation to see it at this level and on my calibrated display it equals the theatrical presentation I remember. All in all, a splendid rendering of a true classic. MGM, 20th Century Fox and Castle Rock have a product they can be proud of here.
And if the picture quality wasn't enough, let's move on to the glorious DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack. Dialogue is, as they say, crisp and clear, the music shines throughout the film and there are more than adequate smatterings of surround activity , usually for ambiance.Read more ›

The characters were interesting but from the beginning it's just people doing what they want and only finding misery. Read morePublished 2 hours ago by Amazon Customer
I'm actually not a huge fan of Meg Ryan OR Billy Crystal, but this movie was adorable and totally charming. Not an overly fluffy or unrealistic chick flick at all. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
