"I'll have what she's having."--When Harry Met Sally--Meg Ryan & Billy Crystal

"When Harry Met Sally" with Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal

"When Harry Met Sally" with Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal is a delightful little 1989 romantic comedy directed by Rob Reiner in the tradition of the clever dialog of Woody Allen's Annie Hall and .Manhattan. Nora Ephron wrote the screenplay.

Harry and Sally are University of Chicago graduates-- clever, successful, neurotic young New Yorkers who debate whether or not nonsexual friendship between men and women is possible. Harry always reads the last page of books in case he dies before he finishes it. Sally insists that Ingrid Bergman really wanted to leave Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca--"I don't want to spend the rest of my life in Casablanca with a guy who owns a bar!"

For her role in the movie Meg Ryan won the American Comedy Award Funniest Actress in a Motion Picture. The movie is best known for the Meg Ryan's performance in the famous delicatessen scene followed by a comment by a middle aged woman at the next table (played by Rob Reiner's mother) "I'll have what she's having." A video of this scene appears below. Enjoy!
