Perhaps it is merely the fact that I don't believe there is much chemistry between Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. Both of them can be great actors on their own, but when you try and have them kiss romantically it feels so off. I feel as awkward as Harry does after they've slept together. I'm not sure why, but I just don't feel that connection.
When Harry Met Sally - Wikipedia
The slow development of their relationship from enemies to friends is totally believable and I am always loving the film through the first two acts. Then in the final act I start to get agitated and want to stop watching. Perhaps where I continually find myself getting frustrated with this movie is the fact that Harry posits that a guy and a girl cannot be just friends.
It's a difficult argument to swallow, but he makes it quite compelling. Then over the course of the film we start to see that perhaps Harry is wrong and it can be done. They have an amazing relationship as friends, and it is so much fun to watch them connecting on that level.
