When Harry Met Sally

This is one of the best romantic comedies ever made. The film starts out with these two very different people meeting, with a series of chance occurrences and fate these two become friends. This film takes you through their entire friendship and almost their entire lives. This is the closest any film has come to repeating the greatness of "Annie Hall." Rob Reiner, who I have always thought to be just a good director, takes advantage of a very clever script and two great actors. The movie shows a real relationship from both perspectives of each person. We see the the thoughts and feelings that the other may not. We identify with these people and learn something about ourselves and identify our own feelings. This movie is absolutely hilarious and will have you laughing throughout. You leave it with a sense of happiness and a feeling that this can really happen. All of the supporting characters are good in their roles and the script is the huge standout for greatness. It is impossible to forget the great scene with Meg Ryan at the diner that will have men second guessing themselves for years. Can a man and a woman be friends without sex getting in the way? I think this movie answers that question. This film has earned a very worthy spot on my Top 100 Films of All Time. The movie will touch your heart.

5 out of 5 Stars
