I’ll Have What She’s Having

When Harry Met Sally… is perhaps my favorite romantic comedy that I’ve seen. I don’t know why, but I guess I just really connect with the story. It brings up many interesting questions about male/female relations. Growing up I always had many lady friends. Sometimes I was even the only guy in a group of girls and like the movie says, I’ve always considered them in a romantic way at some point. Billy Crystal plays Harry Burns and Meg Ryan plays Sally Albright. Harry is a Billy Crystal type and Sally’s funniest character trait is how she orders food. It’s probably Meg Ryan’s most well known romantic performance. When Harry Met Sally… is interlaced with short segments of older married couples describing how they fell in love. Followed by Harry and Sally meeting for the first time and driving to New York. They don’t really hit it off. Since Harry states that “men and women can never be friends, because the sex part always gets in the way.” Whether or not you support this claim is up to you. Many years pass where Harry and Sally bump into each other again and again. Eventually leading to an unlikely friendship. Most people only remember the movie for the diner scene (“I’ll have what she’s having”), but there’s so much more to the story then just that one hilarious scene. Made even funnier when you find out Rob Reiner’s mother is the one saying the iconic line. When Harry Met Sally… is funny, but also quite sweet. You’ll enjoy the characters whether they’re enemies, friends, or lovers. Let’s call the whole thing off.
