When Harry Met Sally

When Harry Met Sally is quite simply the best Woody Allen film Woody Allen didn't make. I adore it. I can probably quote every line in it. My all-time favourite line in this and in fact, in any movie is: "You made a woman miaow?" Here it is:

Fantastic! This is a film where everybody is at the top of their game. Meg Ryan is yet to be annoying (although it didn't take long), Billy Crystal is always wonderful but I love him in this, Bruno Kirby (RIP) is great and Carrie Fisher is, well, who doesn't love Carrie Fisher? "Someone is staring at you in personal growth!"

Nora Ephron wrote the script. Rob Reiner directed it and Harry Connick sung his way through it. Perfection. Also, has New York ever looked better on screen? I never tire of watching it although I do think the orgasm scene is the least interesting scene in the film.

One of my favourite scenes is this one. Sally - thinks she's low maintenance but is really high maintenance as we can see here. Enjoy!


  1. I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

  2. Thin. Pretty. Big tits. Your basic nightmare.

  3. Harry, you're going to have to try and find a way of not expressing every feeling that you have, every moment that you have them.
