When Harry Met Sally was released in July 1989. Thirty years later, Nora Ephron’s script remains timeless, littered with zingy, quotable one-liners and heartfelt speeches. This is a film that set a precedent for a generation of subsequent rom-coms.
In one of the film’s most famous moments, Harry (Billy Crystal) lists everything he loves about Sally (Meg Ryan) in a climactic outpouring: “I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night…”
Well, almost everything – there’s five things in total. So, fittingly, here are five things I love about When Harry Met Sally.
