When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Rob Reiner directs one of the best scripts by Nora Ephron that examines whether men and women can have a friendship without sex and romance. Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) in superb, nuanced comic performances, meet just after graduating from college in Chicago when Sally offers Harry a ride to New York. Over the ensuing months they explore their friendship while each simultaneously looks for “the right one” amongst other partners. In a memorable restaurant scene, Harry says he doesn’t believe women can fake orgasms, whereupon Sally proceeds to demonstrate one while eating a pastrami on rye sandwich. The famous line that follows her climax was delivered by none other than director Rob Reiner’s mom, Estelle Reiner: “I’ll have what she’s having.”
