A smart, moving, and funny romantic comedy that ranks up there Woody Allen's "Annie Hall" for its brilliance.

Nice romantic comedy. Nothing wow, but there are some very funny and very memorable scenes in the movie that makes the movie better (in the diner f.ex.).. Easy and light, worth the watch :)

I have never really been a fan of romantic comedies, but Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal are great together. It is super funny, cute, and romatic. I like to watch it at least once a year, so I have seen it a few times and still enjoy it like as if it were the first time I was watching it.

One never grows tired with a movie like this despite several viewings. Harry and Sally encounter each other countless of times in different year and locations. Humor coupled with the on-screen chemistry of Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan were fantastic. Fisher and Kirby were solid supports as well. Screenplay of the film is its real strength With lines such as: Harry - "You know you just get to a certain point where you get tired of the whole thing." and Sally - "Besides, I will make love to somebody when it is making love. Not the way you do it like you're out for revenge or something.". Truly one of the greatest, natural, realistic romantic comedies that never goes out of date. When Harry Met Sally is classic in its own right since it is rewatchable, funny and authentic with regard to …

This is easily the best romantic comedy of the last 50 years. The performances by Ryan and Crystal are the best work they have ever done. Fantastically written by Nora Ephron, and brilliantly directed by Rob Reiner, this film is something that every man and every woman must see. It attacks an age old dilemma- Can friends become more than friends? Before marriage, most people have friends that they are secretly, or not so secretly, in love with. this movie explores the idea of friends taking a relationship to the next level. With supporting roles from Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby, and a soundtrack from Harry Connick, Jr. that could not be better, It is- all a once- a great comedy, a fantastic date movie, a terrific 'chick flick', a good movie to cry with and a great movie to laugh with. …
