July 30, 2013
Reiner wants to maintain the sitcom sense of comfort and familiarity; he creates types that we somehow already know, slightly out-of-focus images in which we can see ourselves and our friends.

When Harry Met Sally pleasantly affirms the institution of marriage while showing how difficult it is to achieve a lasting one.
