Favourite movies - Stand By Me (1986)
"I just wish that I could go some place where nobody knows me."
“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

Holiday Movies (Happy New Year!) - When Harry Met Sally (1989)
This movie is so underrated. Michelle’s monologue at the end always gets me. She is so amazing.
carnationpromises SAID: When Harry Met Sally OR You've got Mail ?
I love both movies and have seen them over and over. Both deal with a theme I love which is not knowing that the right person is standing right in front of you and having a combative relationship with them before the love happens.
YGM is cuter and the side plot of Meg Ryan missing her mother and having to close the shop is devastating. WHMS is funnier. I just love the arguing between Harry and Sally, though the same thing happens in You’ve Got Mail, it doesn’t go as far. I love that WHMS spans so many years and they just go through so many different things before reaching the climax of Harry’s speech at the end, which basically turns me into a heap on the floor. I love it so much because it was so important for him to make that move at exactly that time cause I don’t think Sally would have forgiven him so easily had things been different.
I also think YGM is more culturally relevant (not that it really matters in this argument) because of the whole e-mailing and online dating thing. Though people were online dating years and years before then, it was kind of exploding at the time if I remember correctly.
I haven’t watched YGM in a while and I really need to (I actually found my DVD of it today so that’s weird…) before I make a final assessment on this. Actually, no, both films are wonderful and that is my answer!!! I’m obsessed. Ignore me.
What do you guys think?
When Harry Met Sally
It was alot of fun. We were like good buddies. I was like 11 years old then, they were all 15 and 16 and 14, so I was like their baby and they took care of me. - Jerry O’Connell
