Sally (Meg Ryan) needs a ride back from college to New York so grabs a lift with cantankerous Harry (Billy Crystal). En route the two argue about whether men and women can ever truly be friends, or does sex always intervene? Arriving in town, they seem happy never to see each other again, but as time passes, they find themselves thrown together, in and out of love affairs with other people, slowly worming their way into each other’s hearts.
Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail) set a new template for romantic comedies with this classic of the genre. Frank, hilarious and making the most of its two adorable leads, it’s witty beyond compare and with the lightest of touches. I’ll have what she’s having!
