Product Description

"Brimming over with style, intelligence and flashing wit" (Rolling Stone), this "splendid and irresistible" (Los Angeles Times) film from director Rob Reiner(American President is one of the best-loved romantic comedies of all time. Featuring dazzling performances from Meg Ryan, Billy Crystal, Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby, exceptional music from Harry Connick Jr., and an OscarÂ(r)-nominated* screenplay by Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally is an "explosively funny" commentary on friendship, courtships - and other hardships - of the modern age (Newsweek)! Will sex ruin a perfect relationship between a man and a woman? that's what Harry (Crystal) and Sally (Ryan) debate during their travels from Chicago to New York. And eleven years and later, they're still no closer to finding the answer. Will these two best friends ever accept that they're meant for each other...or will they continue to deny the attraction that's existed since the first moment When Harry Met Sally? *1989

Additional Features

With the proliferation of so many lackluster deleted scenes on DVDs, it's nice to see something on this DVD that's worth watching. The seven scenes gathered here all have good laughs and could have easily been included in the film. Highlights of the 35-minute documentary (produced in 2000) include the genesis of the film (director Reiner's return to dating after years of marriage) and the deconstruction of many of the movie's best moments. New and old interviews are included, with Reiner, writer Nora Ephron, and Billy Crystal taking center stage. Lifelong friends Crystal and Reiner should have done the commentary together--Reiner's monotone delivery doesn't work against the lively comedy. Besides, the juiciest facts have been covered in the documentary. Also, Barry Sonnefeld's cinematography is a real treat to view in the widescreen format. --Doug Thomas

Something has always bothered me about romantic comedies, i.e. you rarely actually get to see the couple fall in love, you know, actually witness the growth of the bond between them. They just fall in love, but you don't really get to be there. Except when you're watching 'When Harry Met Sally'. Rob Riener made a better film from a Nora Ephron script than she ever could. No offence to her, she's just a better writer than she is director. And Meg Ryan is so much better with Billy Crystal than Tom Hanks, although I have nothing but respect for Mr.Hanks. The thing is that its not just a genuinely and consistently funny movie, it's also terribly romantic. It spans about twleve years in the lives of both Harry and Sally, from their first meeting at college. They grow and change, they like and dislike each other, they become romantically involved and then they don't. The whole thing is very engrossing and witty but never seems far fetched or fantastical. I rate this movie as a contender for cinema's best romantic comedy. Enjoy the dialogue, the charm, the music, the drama and melodrama and give praise to Rob Riener and his magnificant team who made a wonderful film. The stars have not reunited since and it is possibly for the best as it would be an extremely difficult task to repeat this kind of quality. Chemistry and genuine emtion are hard to come by in this genre, enjoy it while you can. Its available on video and DVD and is rarely edited for T.V.

As a rule I generally do not review films...if only because after attempting this before I find I'm totally inadequate! I know nothing of camera angles, dialogue or for that matter what to even look for in any given movie! I suspect I would have flunked out of Film 101! Obviously music reviews are my "forte" but since this film ranks as one of my absolute favorites than it's worthy of another attempt. Wish me luck!
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.

This is one of the few movies I can watch over and over and never tire of seeing it. It is so true to life about relaionships betwen men and women. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan are the perfect actors to play Harry Burns and Sally Albright, the completely opposite and mismatched couple who are actually the perfect match for each other. Billy Crystal's unique humor shines through, and Meg Ryan is the only actress who could play Sally. Bruno Kirby and Carrie Fisher are great as Harry and Sally's best friends. The dialauge between Harry and Sally is wonderfull throughout the fillm. And the diner scene is one of the funniest I've ever seen in a movie. It all but steals the entire picture. This is ,hands-down, a modern romantic comedy classic that everyone should see.

As a die-hard Woody Allen fan, particularly one who admires the work this controversial filmmaker produced from 1975 to 1989, there is no question that Rob Reiner's "Allenesque" riff in 1989 about romance in New York -- at first rubbed me the wrong way -- since so much of its atmosphere and dialogue reminded me of Annie Hall (1977), Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), both nominees for Best Picture, with the former winning the big prize in 1978.

But the film really felt most like Allen's 1979 masterpiece, "Manhattan." The stories are different, but the dialogue, music and wit are essentially the same.

Having gotten that out of the way, what I really admire about "When Harry Met Sally" is its successful effort at taking a Woody Allen "riff" and making it mainstream enough to keep it from being cast as a snobby "art house" picture -- injecting a commercially pleasing structure without dumbing down the materal and -- perhaps the best improvement of all -- the inclusion of the snippets of dialogue from long-married real life couples (or so I think).

This takes "When Harry Met Sally" momentarily out of the realm of romantic fantasy and into the realm of reality, juxtaposing interviews between a story of two people covering several years and watching them draw closer to each other -- inescapably falling in love -- which, while predictable (you can see it coming a mile away), is what the audience WANTS, without being overly manipulated.

The "journey" is what counts, even if we know where the story is going, unlike Woody Allen's films, where you are guessing until the credits how everything is going to end.

My biggest gripe continues to be the same I've brought up over and over with friends.
