When Harry Met Sally Reviews

July 18, 2018
When Harry Met Sally is a beautiful, brainy, touching and lilting romantic comedy that should touch the heartstrings of lovers and those yearning to be in love everywhere.

Cynically lovely and a whip smart archetype for the modern rom-com.

Still a treat.

Quite possibly the greatest romantic comedy since Some Like It Hot.

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.

The summer's uncorseted, unqualified delight.

If you love vintage Woody Allen, you'll like the nouveau Rob Reiner.

During the slow passages, I wondered to what extent the film's creators are aware of its Woodyisms, and to what degree they feel guilty about ripping Allen off.

ike Harry and Sally, the movie is hardworking, spot on; it winepresses its conversation into epigrams.

Fans of Billy Crystal's amphibian qualities may be amused, but the rest of us have to contend with a slavish Woody Allen imitation.

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.

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).

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.
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.

When Harry Met Sally... is a sweet, embraceable comedy, a moonstruck Manhattan romance that, like a Gershwin tune, turns the sighs and glances, the spats and reconciliations, all the cliches of the heart into infectious melody.

What makes it special, apart from the Ephron screenplay, is the chemistry between Crystal and Ryan.
January 1, 2000
Offers an often humorous, occasionally poignant view of men, women, sex, love, and friendship.
