When Harry Met Sally...
1989
Nora Ephron's episodic screenplay introduces womanizing, neurotic Harry and ambitious, equally neurotic Sally as chums who resist sexual attraction to maintain their friendship, a relationship that's always teetering on the brink of love.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

The central premise of this movie has always been contradictory: "Can a man and woman be good friends without sex getting in the way?" The movie doesn't want them to be good friends, of course. It has warm fuzzies to deliver. All that a romantic comedy really needs are two appealing lead actors and a funny script that doesn't play stupid, and this one has become a favorite for two decades on that simple combination. It loves its characters, lets them be people instead of tools of the plot, and has jokes that still bring laughs a generation later.
