Classic Romantic Comedy Back on the Big Screen

The first movie I ever saw about adult relationships was Sleepless in Seattle. I remember my mother dragging me with her to a random movie theater in the western suburbs to see some movie with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan that in my mind was for "old people." I was 13 years old and hadn't even heard of When Harry Met Sally. I remember by the end of Sleepless in Seattle, I felt like it was one of t… (more)

Possibly one of the most inane films of all time. Meg Ryan is a pathetic actress and her supposedly famous scene is cringe-inducing. Billy Crystal is wasted here. Ugh in spades.

This is is awful !
...when I got this NYPL disc home and put this movie in the DVD player...and the screen says: "NOT FORMATTED FOR THIS REGION" !!?? ( Even though it states "Region #1", on the DVD jacket !!?)

I have watched a thousand other New York Public Library DVDs on my Panasonic Region 1 DVD Player,.. but this one makes it 32 TIMES that a film has have come up as "NOT FORMATTED..." etc. !

I was really hoping to see this classic film again after all these years.
Having this happen is so VERY DISAPPOINTING !!
I really wanted to see this movie. And I know that ALL the NYPL copies of it will have this same problem !!
WHY is the New York Public Library buying DVD's that are "NOT FORMATTED.." to be viewed in this region ?
Has this ever happened to anyone else out there ??

This dated film definitely has many punch lines and funny moments. My problem is the two main characters started out to be fairly unlikeable characters. By the end of the film, I still don't like them that much.

A wonderful movie about a man and a woman straddling the line between friendship and attraction, gradually falling in love. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan are perfectly cast in the lead roles, with terrific supporting backup from Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby. It's a smart, very funny film, with tremendously likeable performances, and very human characters. It also has great timing, and some of the best lines in films from the 80s. One of director Rob Reiner's best.

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

Love!

Harry Burns: Had my dream again where I'm making love, and the Olympic judges are watching. I'd nailed the compulsories, so this is it, the finals. I got a 9.8 from the Canadians, a perfect 10 from the Americans, and my mother, disguised as an East German judge, gave me a 5.6. Must have been the dismount.

Harry Burns: 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. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

Harry and Sally have known each other for years, and are very good friends, but they fear sex would ruin the friendship.
