Friday Night Film - When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Meg Ryan, the queen of romantic comedies, stars in this super cute movie about falling head over heels for someone you can't stand.  The story begins in 1977, when Sally Albright, a slightly uptight journalism student agrees to ride to New York City with Harry Burns, the boyfriend of one of her close friends.  Along the way, they get into many discussions regarding men, women, and dating, and ultimately have opposite opinions.  Once they reach New York City, they part ways.
Five years later, they run into each other again on an airplane.  Sally is dating one of Harry's old friends, Joe, and Harry is engaged to a lady named Helen.  After getting into the same discussions about men, women, and relationships, they decide they cannot be friends.
They run into each other once more 5 years later in a bookstore.  They decide to go out for coffee, and they each learn that their respective relationships have ended.  They finally decide to be friends, and begin spending more time together.  After a few failed attempts at different relationships and run-ins with their exes, they realize that they were the ones in love all along.
In my opinion, this is one of the best romantic comedies ever made.  Billy Crystal is as hilarious as ever.  And honestly, who doesn't love Meg Ryan?  This is definitely a fun watch for a Friday night spent in. :)
