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.

Most people by now have seen 'When Harry met Sally' at least once so rather than critique the film this review pertains to the current Blu Ray release.

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.

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.
