When Harry Met Sally

There are some comedies that use cheap humor to make easy jokes. And then, there’s ‘When Harry Met Sally.’ This film is brilliantly written and carried out, with many effective and witty jokes done in unique ways. (Days of the week underwear? That’s great!) And it’s all centered around Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. Crystal is as funny as ever, and Meg Ryan, well, she’s Meg Ryan, adorable in pretty much every role, and she’s at her best here. And I have to say it’s an interesting spin on the romantic comedy genre. We know from the start of the film that they’re destined to be together, but they don’t. In fact, they hate each other the first time they meet. Watching the overly cheery Ryan interact with the morose Crystal is too much fun to watch.
