When Harry Met Sally
Starring: Billy Crystal Balls, Meg-on-Rye-bread (see what I did there?)
When Narry Borman met his ex-wife Zhang Xiyi, they got on like a pair of chopsticks. Alas, that all ended when the proverbial "chop sticks" dropped the proverbial "noodles" all over the "floor of destiny."
When Harry Met Sally has a much nicer ending, with Billy C and Meg R finally admitting their unending love for each other - whether being wed to either of them in unending matrimony is "nice" is debatable, however.
Harry is a likable and believable character. He possesses all the "twerks" (modern parlance for 'quirks') of a real chap. Sally is equally neurotic and quite sweet. Clearly, the target was to create a realistic love film. One that presented just a pair of folks finding love...
And it works well. There's some nice comedy in there, and an entertaining love story. Rob Reiner is behind the camera, so you know it's going to be well put together and the script is quite sharp.
It's like a watered down version of Annie Hall. Meh.
