Somehow I never got around to watching this one before - weird since I've seen just about every other 80's and chick flick going.
The first thing that struck me was how attractive Meg Ryan looks here compared to her recent plastic surgery look. She plays the strong willed and neurotic Sally well in this movie which starts in the 70's when she meets Harry while car pooling, up to current day (late 80's).
The two initially irritate each other, but after a chance meeting years later, they become friends, sharing their disappointments over the years. It doesn't take a genius to see where this movie is going.
Not trying to be awful, but I couldn't really see what Sally saw in Harry. It's a nice story of friendship and I was glad for the happy ending, but it didn't feel all that convincing.
This is a very popular movie, though, so I am willing to conclude that that could just be my opinion. Glad I saw it finally, though. Enjoyable.
