I'm sitting on the couch watching When Harry Met Sally. What is it about this movie that makes me sit up and watch it whenever it comes on? I also have it on DVD. I think I've seen this movie at least 30 times (that's not an exaggeration) and I still notice something new every time.
I think what I like most is the fact that the characters knew each other for so long. I like seeing their relationship evolve. They "meet" each other at pivotal moments in their lives. And learn from each other. I love the character of Harry. Sarcastic, with a skewered view of love and women. But he's hilarious. And some of his twisted thinking actually makes sense.
I couldn't help but like Sally. She was a romantic. Kind of looked at the world with rose colored glasses. Even when things bothered her, she pretended like it was no big deal. Harry loosened her up.
And who could forget the fake orgasm scene in the restaurant?
I guess some things are timeless. What about you? Seen any good movies lately? Old or new?
