Classic Movie Review III

Now here is a cracker.  This film is not shown very often on TV, which is a shame, because when it was released (can you believe, 20 years ago) When Harry Met Sally was a hit.


Famous for the 'I'll have what she's having' scene in the diner, the following clip shows Harry and Sally on an airport walkway, as he tries to amend the rule that men and women cannot be friends.





Here are some facts about the film:
The orgasm scene was filmed at Katz's Deli, an actual restaurant on New York's E. Houston Street. The table at which the scene was filmed now has a plaque on it that reads, "Congratulations! You're sitting where Harry met Sally.


In the 1990 Academy Awards, the film was nominated for Best Writing, Screenplay written directly for the screen, for Nora Ephron.
Also, in 1990, Billy Crystal won the American Comedy Award for Funniest Actor in a Motion Picture (leading man).  Meg Ryan also won for Funniest Actress.


You could class this as a 'chick flick'; but to be honest, it's an all-round feel-good film.  With the Christmas and New Year theme, it's a great film to watch at this time of year.


I'm sure you've seen it, but if you haven't, take a look; you'll enjoy it.
