Imagine this: You’ve had a long day — say, stressful job, restless kids, a global pandemic — and you just want to turn your brain off. So, what chill-out movie do you turn to? Mine is a no-brainer…
When Harry Met Sally. I always laugh throughout the 1989 romcom and can quote almost every line. The ending makes my heart swell, and suddenly everything feels all right.
Here are three fun facts:
— In the original ending, Harry and Sally didn’t end up together. (!)
— Two of the studio’s top choices for Harry were Tom Hanks and Michael Keaton, and Sally was almost played by Molly Ringwald.
— Screenwriter Nora Ephron’s title ideas included ‘How They Met,’ ‘Boy Meets Girl,’ ‘Just Friends,’ ‘Words of Love,’ and ‘Harry, This Is Sally.’
So, I’m curious: What’s your comfort movie? Please share below!
