A comedy about the romantic travails of two neurotic New Yorkers who keep running into each other over a period of thirteen years and form a friendship that gradually evolves into a romance. But it's a rocky road to true love, with plenty of false starts and failed relationships on both sides, before the two of them realize they're made for each other after all.
Throughout 12 years of friendship Harry and Sally are convinced they are only friends. But after 12 years there may be no one else more qualified to be in love in this delightful, anecdotal romantic comedy. Academy Award Nominations: Best (Original) Screenplay.
