Throwback Thursday-When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Can men and women ever truly be friends? Can they enjoy each other’s company without getting involved with each other either romantically or sexually?

This is the question that When Harry Met Sally (1989) asked.

Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) and Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) have been around each other for years. Their relationship is strictly platonic. That is the way they both like it. They have their own lives, their own relationships, nothing could ever change their friendship. But fate has something else in mind for Harry and Sally.

This movie is rom com gold. A standard bearer for the genre for a quarter century, it both sticks to the script and steps out of the traditional narrative of a romantic comedy.

I absolutely recommend it.

And P.S. Just for fun, here is Meg Ryan faking an orgasm like the best of them while eating at Katz’s Deli, one of the best restaurants in NYC.
