When Harry Met Sally (1989)
Harry and Sally first meet and share a drive. They keep meeting over many years, staying friends but in the end they get together. Pass the sick bag please. This one is worse than Sheepless in Sea Cattle.
Reason for bleaklisting?
Orgasms at a dinner table. Must have been one hell of a salad!
Harry and Sally first meet when leaving university. They share a drive where Harry wields a gun and shoots at mailboxes along the way. One of his shots ricochets off one mailbox and hits Sally in the forehead. Harry was firing blanks but Sally has one hell of a bruise on her head the next day. Over the years Harry and Sally keep meeting and each time Harry keeps firing his gun and every time a bullet bounces off something and hits Sally. Over time Sally is hit on the ear, shoulder, buttocks, mouth and even up the nose (through one nostril and out the other.) In the end they meet at a shooting range which has helped Harry focus his aim a little but Sally arrives wearing a suit of plate armour and a helm with a visor. They declare their undying love for one another and when they get married, Harry fires his gun again but this time the bullet ricochets into the air and takes out a space shuttle which leads to an elaborate firework display for Sally. Beautiful.
When Harry Shot Sally.
Can men and women be friends or does a gun always get in the way.
Who should direct?
Who should star?
Elijah Wood and Jennifer Lawrence.
Mr B compares the stories
Rob Reiner’s romantic comedy is a classic with Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan at their best. Offended by the simple friendship and then romance, Charlie has spiced things up a bit by turning Harry and Sally into a somewhat comical Bonnie and Clyde. Sally certainly sounds patient in the respect that every time she meets Harry he shoots her. Very strange. Frodo Baggins and Katniss Everdeen for the starring roles in this one? It’s not beyond the realms of possibility but unlikely at the moment as Elijah Wood and Jennifer Lawrence both have careers that are doing well.
