When Harry Met SallyClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Rob Reiner's romantic comedy documents a very unusual couple. There's never been a friendship quite like Harry and Sally's. From faking an orgasm at the corner deli, to debating the odds of having great sex with a guy named "Sheldon", there's nothing Harry and Sally don't do together. Well, almost nothing…. At the start, they are two recent college graduates who meet while sharing a ride together from Chicago to New York. They decide that it is impossible for men and women to be "just friends," and when they reach The Big Apple, they go their separate ways. Several years later they happen to be seated next to each other on an airplane, and Harry tells Sally about his recent marriage…and several years later, in another random meeting, he relays his divorce…when they become close friends…so close that their respective best friends fall in love. At a climactic New Years Eve party, they finally must confront and embrace their true feelings for each other.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: What Harry and Sally do -- the true focus of this often funny but amazingly hollow film -- is saunter through the romanticized lives of intelligent, successful, neurotic New Yorkers.
Fresh: A ravishing, romantic lark brimming over with style, intelligence and flashing wit.
Fresh: ike Harry and Sally, the movie is hardworking, spot on; it winepresses its conversation into epigrams.
Fresh: The summer's uncorseted, unqualified delight.
Love this movie, but...
I've always loved this movie, ever since it was released. So imagine my delight when I found it on iTunes, and my utter disappointment when I watched it and realized that they had messed with the soundtrack. The fabulous song that really makes the most pivotal scene in the movie, is no longer there! What a shame. I had to take a star off my rating of the movie just for that. If you're watching it for the first time, DON'T watch it on iTunes. And if you've seen it before, you've been warned....
NOT THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK
The title spoke. My favorite Billy Crystal movie. I'm gonna have to buy it again on bluray when it comes out. If it's going to be your first time watching it, DO NOT see this on itunes. Ask any professional actor or anyone in the entertainment bussiness; they'll let you kno that soundtrack is super important for a hit movie. "Gladiator" or "Dirty Dancing" would be polar opposite, yet supporting, examples. Fall in love with the movie by watching the original. :)
This movie is amazing and Billy Crystal is hilarious, so is everyone else though. I thought it was just a little romance movie, but it turned out to be really funny and really good.
