When Harry Met Sally…

When Harry Met Sally… is the first of the three popular rom-com movies written by Nora Ephron. I got to see them in reverse order, falling in love first with You’ve Got Mail, then Sleepless in Seattle and finally saw WHMS a few years ago. When they first meet, Sally (Meg Ryan) thinks Harry (Billy Crystal) is a prick. But, over 12 years and through several unsucessful relationships they keep running into each other. They mature, mellow over to each other and finally fall in love.

To me, WHMS gets lovelier every time I see it. Meg Ryan looks absolutely gorgeous here, probably her best act ever. Billy Crystal is a total natural in his role, which is very funny. The movie is full of memorable dialogues and who can forget Sally’s fake orgasm at the deli! Much like You’ve Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally too remains one of the few movies which I would not mind watching over and over and over again.
