Sally is special lightning-in-a-bottle stuff that every member of the production has spent precious years of their lives trying to recreate, but always failing miserably.

ike Harry and Sally, the movie is hardworking, spot on; it winepresses its conversation into epigrams.
April 1, 2008
This is Ephron at her best.
April 1, 2008
Director Rob Reiner has a killer instinct for setting up jokes and punchlines, and is vastly aided by the performances and chemistry of Crystal and Ryan, as well as crisp supporting work from Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby.

Fans of Billy Crystal's amphibian qualities may be amused, but the rest of us have to contend with a slavish Woody Allen imitation.
April 1, 2008
Rob Reiner directs with deftness and sincerity, making the material seem more engaging than it is, at least until the plot machanics begin to unwind and the film starts to seem shapeless.
January 16, 2008
Reiner's film breaks the romantic-comedy mold because it's not so much about Harry and Sally as it is about men and women.

Reiner clearly likes his characters, and elicits sturdy performances from a proficient cast (Kirby and Fisher are especially fine as friends and confidants to the pair).
November 18, 2005
What keeps the momentum going, despite the story's predictability, is the dialogue and the chemistry, which makes for a high-wire act.

October 19, 2003
Much valued in some corners, but found downright painful in this one.

May 20, 2003
What Harry and Sally do -- the true focus of this often funny but amazingly hollow film -- is saunter through the romanticized lives of intelligent, successful, neurotic New Yorkers.

September 1, 2002
Provides plenty of material for a private seminar on the education of your sentiments about love, friendship, and sexuality.
May 12, 2001
A ravishing, romantic lark brimming over with style, intelligence and flashing wit.
April 17, 2001
The writing and direction plays with the [romantic comedy] form and your expectations alike throughout, and with such good performances the film makes for a deliciously prickly ride with laugh-out-loud moments and scenes that resonate through the story.
