When Harry Met Sally...

Director: Rob Reiner
Year Released: 1989
Rating: 3.0

Romantic story saved from the dreaded curse of sugary excess, single-handedly, by Billy Crystal, who goes through the screenplay's motions of falling for Meg Ryan, though in his face you can read a whole lot of pessimism. The Orgasm-in-a-Diner scene has to be one of the worst 'famous' sequence in movies - oh come on people - but if you tear that out what you have is a half-decent Woody Allen film not starring Woody Allen and without the Pushkin references and self-loathing. Nice and stomach-able, though nothing to rave over.
