When Harry Met Sally… Theatrical release poster Directed by Rob Reiner Produced by Rob Reiner Andrew Scheinman Nora Ephron Written by Nora Ephron Starring Billy Crystal Meg Ryan Carrie Fisher Bruno Kirby Music by Marc Shaiman Harry Connick Jr. Cinematography Barry Sonnenfeld Edited by Robert Leighton Production company Castle Rock Entertainment Nelson Entertainment Distributed by Columbia Pictures Release date July 21, 1989 Running time 96 minutes Country United States Language English Budget $16 million Box office $92. 8 million When Harry Met Sally... is a 1989 American romantic comedy film written by Nora Ephron and directed by Rob Reiner. It stars Billy Crystal as Harry and Meg Ryan as Sally. The story follows the title characters from the time they meet just before sharing a cross-country drive, through twelve years of chance encounters in New York City. The film raises the question "Can men and women ever just be friends? " and advances many ideas about relationships that became household concepts, such as "high-maintenance"  and the "transitional person".  The origins of the film were derived from Reiner's return to single life after a divorce. An interview Ephron conducted with Reiner provided the basis for Harry. Sally was based on Ephron and some of her friends. Crystal came on board and made his own contributions to the screenplay, making Harry funnier. Ephron supplied the structure of the film with much of the dialogue based on the real-life friendship between Reiner and Crystal. The soundtrack consists of standards performed by Harry Connick Jr., with a big band and orchestra arranged by Marc Shaiman. For his work on the soundtrack, Connick won his first Grammy Award for Best Jazz Male Vocal Performance. Columbia Pictures released When Harry Met Sally... in select cities, letting word of mouth generate interest, before gradually expanding distribution. The film grossed $92. 8 million in North America. Ephron received a British Academy Film Award, an Oscar nomination, and a Writers Guild of America Award nomination for her screenplay. The film is ranked 23rd on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Laughs list of the top comedy films in American cinema and number 60 on Bravo's "100 Funniest Movies". In early 2004, the film was adapted for the stage in a production starring Luke Perry and Alyson Hannigan. Plot [ edit] In 1977, Harry Burns and Sally Albright graduate from the University of Chicago and share the drive to New York City, where Sally is beginning journalism school and Harry is starting a career. Harry is dating Sally's friend Amanda. During the drive, Harry and Sally discuss their differing ideas about relationships; Sally disagrees with Harry's assertion that men and women cannot be friends as "the sex part gets in the way". At a diner, Harry tells Sally she is attractive, and she angrily accuses him of making a pass at her. They part in New York on unfriendly terms. Five years later, Harry and Sally find themselves on the same flight. Sally is dating Harry's neighbor Joe, and Harry is engaged to Helen, which surprises Sally. Harry suggests they become friends, forcing him to qualify his previous position about the impossibility of male-female friendships. They separate, concluding that they will not be friends. Harry and Sally run into each other again in a bookstore five years later. They have coffee and talk about their previous relationships; Sally and Joe broke up because she wanted a family and he did not want to marry, and Harry's wife Helen left him for another man. They take a walk and become friends. They have late-night phone conversations, go to dinner, and spend time together, discussing their love lives. During a New Year's Eve party, Harry and Sally find themselves attracted to each other. Even though they remain friends, they set each other up with their respective best friends, Marie and Jess. When the four go to a restaurant, Marie and Jess become fast friends and later become engaged. Over the phone, Sally tearfully tells Harry that her ex is getting married. He rushes to her apartment to comfort her, and they have sex; Harry leaves the next morning distressed. Their friendship cools until a heated argument at Jess and Marie's wedding dinner. Harry attempts to mend his friendship with Sally, but she feels that they cannot be friends. At a New Year's Eve party that year, Sally feels alone without Harry by her side. Harry spends New Year's alone, walking around the city. As Sally decides to leave the party early, Harry appears and declares his love for her. She argues that the only reason he is there is because he is lonely, but he lists the many things he realized he loves about her. They kiss and marry three months later, exactly 12 years and three months after their first meeting. The plot also contains several interlaced segments throughout the film where fictitious older married couples narrate to the camera their stories of how they met. The last couple that is interviewed before the closing credits is Harry and Sally. Cast [ edit] Billy Crystal as Harry Burns Meg Ryan as Sally Albright Carrie Fisher as Marie Fisher Bruno Kirby as Jess Fisher Steven Ford as Joe Lisa Jane Persky as Alice Michelle Nicastro as Amanda Reese Kevin Rooney as Ira Stone Harley Kozak as Helen Hillson Estelle Reiner as Female Customer Production [ edit] In 1984, director Rob Reiner, producer Andy Scheinman and writer Nora Ephron met over lunch at the Russian Tea Room in New York City to develop a project.  Reiner pitched an idea for a film that Ephron rejected.  The second meeting transformed into a long discussion about Reiner and Scheinman's lives as single men. Reiner remembers, "I was in the middle of my single life. I'd been divorced for a while. I'd been out a number of times, all these disastrous, confusing relationships one after another. "  The next time they all met, Reiner said that he had always wanted to do a film about two people who become friends and do not have sex because they know it will ruin their relationship but have sex anyway. Ephron liked the idea, and Reiner acquired a deal at a studio.  For materials, Ephron interviewed Reiner and Scheinman about their lives, creating the basis for Harry. Reiner was constantly depressed and pessimistic yet funny. Ephron also got bits of dialogue from these interviews.  She worked on several drafts over the years while Reiner made Stand By Me and The Princess Bride.  Billy Crystal "experienced vicariously" Reiner's (his best friend at the time) return to single life after divorcing comedian/filmmaker Penny Marshall and in the process was unconsciously doing research for the role of Harry.  During the screenwriting process when Ephron would not feel like writing, she would interview people who worked for the production company. Some of the interviews appeared in the film as the interludes between certain scenes featuring couples talking about how they met,  although the material was rewritten and reshot with actors.  For example, in the scene where Sally and Harry appear on a split-screen, talking on the telephone while watching their respective television sets, channel surfing, was something that Crystal and Reiner did every night.  Originally, Ephron wanted to call the film How They Met and went through several different titles. Reiner even started a contest with the crew during principal photography: whoever came up with the title won a case of champagne.  In order to get into the lonely mindset of Harry when he was divorced and single, Crystal stayed by himself in a separate room from the cast and crew while they were shooting in Manhattan.  The script initially ended with Harry and Sally remaining friends and not pursuing a romantic relationship because she felt that was "the true ending", as did Reiner.  Eventually, Ephron and Reiner realized that it would be a more appropriate ending for them to marry, though they admit that this is generally not a realistic outcome.  When posed the film's central question, can men and women just be friends, Ryan replied, "Yes, men and women can just be friends. I have a lot of platonic (male) friends, and sex doesn't get in the way. " Crystal said, "I'm a little more optimistic than Harry. But I think it is difficult. Men basically act like stray dogs in front of a supermarket. I do have platonic (women) friends, but not best, best, best friends. "  Rob Reiner initially envisioned actress Susan Dey for the role of Sally Albright. [ citation needed] When she declined, he later considered Elizabeth Perkins. [ citation needed] He also considered casting Elizabeth McGovern. [ citation needed] Molly Ringwald was almost cast, but Meg Ryan convinced Reiner to give her the role. [ citation needed] Reiner's mother Estelle and daughter Tracy both played roles in the film. Katz's Delicatessen scene [ edit] Film still from the famous restaurant scene Katz's Deli still hangs this sign above the table. In a scene featuring the two title characters having lunch at Katz's Delicatessen in Manhattan, the couple are arguing about a man's ability to recognize when a woman is faking an orgasm. Sally claims that men cannot tell the difference, and to prove her point, she vividly (fully clothed) fakes one as other diners watch. The scene ends with Sally casually returning to her meal as a nearby patron (played by Reiner's mother) places her order: "I'll have what she's having. " When Estelle Reiner died at age 94 in 2008, The New York Times referred to her as the woman "who delivered one of the most memorably funny lines in movie history".  This scene was shot again and again, and Ryan demonstrated her fake orgasms for hours.  Katz's Deli still hangs a sign above the table that says, "Where Harry met Sally... hope you have what she had! "   This classic scene was born when the film started to focus too much on Harry. Crystal remembers saying, "'We need something for Sally to talk about, ' and Nora said, 'Well, faking orgasm is a great one, ' and right away we said, 'Well, the subject is good, ' and then Meg came on board and we talked with her about the nature of the idea and she said, 'Well, why don't I just fake one, just do one? '"  Ryan suggested that the scene take place in a restaurant,  and it was Crystal who came up with the scene's classic punchline – "I'll have what she's having. "  In 2005, the quote was listed 33rd on the AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes list of memorable movie lines. Reiner recalls that at a test screening, all of the women in the audience were laughing while all of the men were silent.  In late 2013, Improv Everywhere, the New York City initiative behind the annual No Pants Day in the subways and various flash-mob stunts, convened and filmed a re-enactment in Katz's Delicatessen. While a look-alike couple performed the scene, 30 others joined as if it was contagious. Surprised staff and customers responded in appreciation. The film and follow-up interviews are public.  In October of the same year, Katz's invited Baron Von Fancy to display his ten-foot-high mural quoting the famous line in its pop-up gallery next door, The Space.  Soundtrack [ edit] The When Harry Met Sally... soundtrack album features American singer and pianist Harry Connick Jr. Bobby Colomby, the drummer for Blood, Sweat & Tears, was a friend of Reiner's and recommended Harry Connick Jr., giving the director a tape of the musician's music. [ citation needed] Reiner was struck by Connick's voice and how he sounded like a young Frank Sinatra. The movie's soundtrack album was released by Columbia Records in July 1989. The soundtrack consists of standards performed by Harry Connick Jr. with a big band and orchestra arranged by Marc Shaiman. Connick won his first Grammy for Best Jazz Male Vocal Performance.  Arrangements and orchestrations on " It Had to Be You ", " Where or When ", "I Could Write a Book", and "But Not for Me" are by Connick and Shaiman. Other songs were performed as piano / vocal solos, or with Connick's trio featuring Benjamin Jonah Wolfe on bass and Jeff "Tain" Watts on drums. Also appearing on the album are tenor saxophonist Frank Wess and guitarist Joy Berliner. The soundtrack went to #1 on the Billboard Traditional Jazz Chart and was within the top 50 on the Billboard 200.  Connick also toured North America in support of this album.  It went on to reach double-platinum status.  The music in the film is performed by various artists, such as Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Bing Crosby, and Harry Connick Jr. Reception [ edit] Box office [ edit] Columbia Pictures released the film using the "platform" technique which involved opening it in a few select cities letting positive word of mouth generate interest and then gradually expanding distribution over subsequent weeks. On its opening weekend, it grossed $1 million in 41 theaters.  Billy Crystal was worried that the film would flop at the box office because it was up against several summer blockbuster films, like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Batman.  The film went into wide release on July 21, 1989, and grossed $8. 8 million on its opening weekend in 775 theaters.  This was later expanded to 1, 174 theaters and the film grossed a total of $92. 8 million in North America, well above its $16 million budget.  Critical response [ edit] When Harry Met Sally... received a 90% approval rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes based on 70 reviews, with an average rating of 8. 03/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Rob Reiner's touching, funny film set a new standard for romantic comedies, and he was ably abetted by the sharp interplay between Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. "  On Metacritic, the film has a score of 76 out of 100, based on 17 critics.  CinemaScore reported that audiences gave the film a rare "A+" grade.  The film led Roger Ebert to call Reiner "one of Hollywood's very best directors of comedy", and said that it was "most conventional, in terms of structure and the way it fulfills our expectations. But what makes it special, apart from the Ephron screenplay, is the chemistry between Crystal and Ryan. "  In a review for The New York Times, Caryn James called When Harry Met Sally... an "often funny but amazingly hollow film" that "romanticized lives of intelligent, successful, neurotic New Yorkers"; James characterized it as "the sitcom version of a Woody Allen film, full of amusing lines and scenes, all infused with an uncomfortable sense of déjà vu ".  Rita Kempley of The Washington Post praised Meg Ryan as the "summer's Melanie Griffith – a honey-haired blonde who finally finds a showcase for her sheer exuberance. Neither naif nor vamp, she's a woman from a pen of a woman, not some Cinderella of a Working Girl. "  Mike Clark of USA Today gave the film three out of four stars, writing, "Crystal is funny enough to keep Ryan from all-out stealing the film. She, though, is smashing in an eye-opening performance, another tribute to Reiner's flair with actors. "  David Ansen provided one of the rare negative reviews of the film for Newsweek. He criticized the casting of Crystal, "Not surprisingly he handles the comedy superbly, but he's too cool and self-protective an actor to work as a romantic leading man", and felt that as a film, "of wonderful parts, it doesn't quite add up".

In addition, the film helped popularize many ideas about love that have become household concepts now, such as the " high-maintenance " girlfriend and the "transitional person".  ‘’You can find traces of ‘When Harry Met Sally’ DNA in virtually every romantic comedy that’s been made since, ” The A.

Romantic comedies are perhaps the most formulaic movies around. Some are better than others (such as While You Were Sleeping and Sleepless in Seattle) and some are weaker (such as License to Wed and others) but they all follow a rather familiar plot. Boy meets girl and after a series of improbable and funny situations, they ultimately fall in love. So how does "When Harry Met Sally" feel so original and fresh every time I watch it despite following this same basic premise? Two major reasons stand out which make this film a one of a kind: Firstly, the screenplay is undoubtedly one of the five funniest I've ever seen. It's similar to Juno (which people were divided on; I personally loved it) in terms of it's wittiness and while most people don't talk quite like this, it is a joy to hear the actors perfectly pull it off. Secondly, the actors are perfect. This is essentially a four person movie, and it is perfectly cast; Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan have the best chemistry that I've ever seen on screen and Bruno Kirby and Carrie Fisher have some of the funniest lines as the best friends of Harry and Sally ( you made a woman meow. Each scene is a little gem, from Harry and Sally's first conversation about sex on their way to New York to their chance encounter in an airport to Sally's famous fake orgasm in a restaurant. The movie is also peppered with hilarious tidbits from random couples about how they met and fell in love ( At that moment I knew. I knew the way you know about a good melon. I am not the kind of guy who hates all romantic comedies, branding them as chick flicks which bore me to tears. In general, they are not my favorite genre, but if done correctly, I enjoy them. "When Harry Met Sally" sets the bar for romantic comedies. It is sensational from start to finish and after over a dozen viewings of it, I love it more than ever. "When Harry Met Sally" is a perfect movie. 10/10.

A lot of men, I find - and this just doesn't seem to be true for most women - treat friendship as a means to an end with women they find attractive. Of course, I stay as far away from the word as possible when using it with potential partners but many men see being friends as the first start to a sexual relationship.

Great movie. When harry met sally. netflix. Thank you for posting this clip. It's a good conversation piece. Personally, the idea seems too binary and materialistic to me. It took me 26 years to realize that I fell in love at first sight with a beautiful young woman. Then my heart broke because I realized that it was an unrequited love. My heart broke very hard. I had arranged a meeting (my first date) in which she had said she had a boyfriend and I had decided not to interfere. So I did not fight for her. She never showed any interest in me after our meeting so I've never felt justified enough to pursue her or contact her in any way. She did not attempt to contact me or drop any apples for me as far as I know. I went on with my life in the ocean of love. I made a lot of dating mistakes in our meeting but for me, the time I spent in her presence conversing with her is a timeless moment of beauty that I treasure in my heart. She was extremely polite, extremely patient and extremely beautiful. I have no idea if the things she said to me were true or not but I have remembered much of what she said. I have learned some things about myself as well due to our meeting. She made the right choice. There does seem to be some form of attraction that is not wholly vulgar even if a man does have a desire to nail a woman too.

When Harry met Sally. is a story of two different people, told with a warm heart. The story starts from Chicago where both Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) meet for the first time, Harry hitching a ride to New York from Sally. They have an interesting discussion on the ride from Chicago to New York, but in NY their roads go to different directions.
After 5 years they meet again. Both have found their places in the Big Apple, Sally's got a boyfriend and Harry's getting married. It is a very brief encounter. It takes another five years until they meet again, this time in a totally different circumstances, which leads to making Harry and Sally finally friends.
When Harry met Sally. is a beautiful and warm movie of two totally different people who finally find true love in their lives. For a romantic comedy, it has some more "edge" more attitude than romantic comedies usually have.
This is Billy Crystal show. Crystal is just amazing as Harry. He is at the same time funny, but with a certain dark side. Once he is madly in love with his ex-wife, second later he is telling Sally how he was having sex with someone the other night.
I have never been a big Meg Ryan fan, but she is doing decent in this movie. She is funny, but does not match Crystal brilliant performance. Together they make the movie an enjoyment, something that makes you smile when the movie is over, something that makes you crawl to your boy/girlfriend's lap more tightly.
A wonderful sensitive movie, very glad I watched it. When harry met sally. 1989) trailer. When harry met sally. Carrie Fisher was my favorite in this movie. I met her a few years ago. You'll have to spend the rest of your life knowing that somebody else is married to your husband. AND He's never gonna leave her. Those 2 sentences define my existence. Carrie is like my wise old aunt. Wanting to have sex with someone doesn't change if you're friends with them or not. Ask most married couples who their best friend in the whole world is, and they'll probably say it's the person they're married to. By that logic, either no married couples would be friends or no married couples would be having sex (har har har but sex ends at marriage durrrrr. Guys are different. I'm friends with girls I'd have sex with, and some guys don't think that's possible.
