Hey guys! Enter the Movies is here to keep you company on this lovely Christmas day with a quick review of When Harry Met Sally...! I'm keeping the tradition going of reviewing movies that you don't necessarily associate with Christmas (like Die Hard from last year) but are very connected to the holiday, as the final act of this movie takes place on Christmas day and New Years day. So how is the movie? It is fantastic. I feel like 2014 thus far hasn't been the strongest of years for movies (of what I've seen so far) so it's really nice to sit down and watch a classic. And believe me, this movie is a classic in every sense of the word. Everything about it is perfect, from the story (written by Nora Ephron) to the direction of Rob Reiner. This is honestly one of the best movies of the 80s, and is the perfect beginning to what would become the golden age of romantic movies.
A romantic movie is only as good as its leads, and to say Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal are great together is something of an understatement. Their chemistry is undeniable from the first moment they get in a car on a cross-country trip all the way through the conclusion of the 96 minute rom-com. From the highs of the plot to the lows, I was with these characters and cared about them from start to finish. And yes, this movie is a comedy and one of the best I've seen in a long time. I cannot emphasize enough how much fun this movie is. Even in its saddest moments there was always a wonderful joke to bring you back up. This movie is a classic in the truest sense of the word, and a very fitting movie to watch on Christmas. Check it out!
Well it's a bit of a short review today and there is a ton more stuff I could talk about, but we all have things to do today. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and a Happy New Year to you as well! And don't forget to have what she's having when you're at the dinner table tonight.
The Critique: A rom-com at its best. Fantastic acting, a great story, and humorous subplots make this movie a classic to the fullest degree.
The Recommendation: I recommend this to anyone, regardless of whether you have a significant other or not. It is a must-see.
The Verdict: 10/10 Perfect
Thanks for spending some of your time here at Enter the Movies today! I love you all!
