July 30, 2013
By the end, when everyone should be rooting for Crystal and Ryan to get together, the whole enterprise has long since soured.
April 1, 2008
Fans of Billy Crystal's amphibian qualities may be amused, but the rest of us have to contend with a slavish Woody Allen imitation.
April 1, 2008
Rob Reiner directs with deftness and sincerity, making the material seem more engaging than it is, at least until the plot machanics begin to unwind and the film starts to seem shapeless.
September 10, 2004
Overrated nonsense about two people who would never date in real life.
| Original Score: 2/5
October 19, 2003
Much valued in some corners, but found downright painful in this one.
| Original Score: 2/5

Reiner and his stars, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, are better at displaying the foibles of human natures than exploring them.
July 30, 2013
During the slow passages, I wondered to what extent the film's creators are aware of its Woodyisms, and to what degree they feel guilty about ripping Allen off.

The title informs audiences they will hear about the circumstances surrounding the meeting of Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan)... but the ellipsis suggests it is not the meeting itself that is the story. It is all about what happens after.

The movie's brush strokes are bright, the finished canvas is pleasing but uninspired.
June 28, 2019
Very, very funny.

April 1, 2008
This is Ephron at her best.
July 18, 2018
When Harry Met Sally is a beautiful, brainy, touching and lilting romantic comedy that should touch the heartstrings of lovers and those yearning to be in love everywhere.
January 8, 2019
When Harry Met Sally... remains the gold standard some thirty years later when it comes to the romantic comedy genre.
January 17, 2017
Just as fresh, witty and warm as it was in 1989.

It has aged perfectly. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 28, 2015
This film is your Christmas treat, and unless you die of a seasonal surfeit it will take you into the New Year laughing out loud.
July 30, 2013
The fake-orgasm-in-a-deli set piece propelled Ryan into stratospheric stardom, but there are numerous other pleasures to be found in Nora Ephron's Oscar-nominated screenplay and Rob Reiner's astute direction.

July 30, 2013
As played winningly by Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, there is a quirky chemistry created in their offbeat pairing.
December 11, 2015
Cynically lovely and a whip smart archetype for the modern rom-com.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 1, 2015
Quite possibly the greatest romantic comedy since Some Like It Hot.
