When Harry Met Sally...

"Can two friends sleep together and still love each other in the morning?"

The movie starts off in the late seventies with Harry and Sally sharing a ride to New York City. Harry dates Amanda, a friend of Sally's, and is going to start a career. Sally is starting journalism school at the University of Chicago. On the way to New York they argue because Harry doesn't believe men and women can be friends, because sex always gets in the way. Sally is upset because she believes men and women can be just friends. They leave each other in New York angry from their conversation.

Sally meets Harry five years later on a plane. They both are in relationships. Harry is engaged, and Sally is dating an old friend of Harry's. Harry would like to become friends, but his beliefs about sex keep them from a continual friendship.

In a New York bookstore the two meet again, five years later. They are both out of their previous relationships. A friendship blooms, and they begin to spend time together. They both compare dates with others and their different views on relationships.

Harry and Sally are unable to deny their attraction at a New Year's Eve party. They go out on a double date with friends of each other's. Though the date was meant to pair up Sally with Harry's friend, and vice versa, their friends wind up together. Harry goes to comfort Sally when she finds out her ex-boyfriend is getting married. They have sex, and it leaves the relationship in an uncomfortable state. Harry wants to make up with Sally, but they have a horrible argument at their friends' wedding.

The following New Year's Eve party shows Sally alone and missing Harry. She is preparing to leave the party when Harry shows up. He tells Sally of his love for her, and the couple reunite with a kiss.

In the end, clips are shown of other random couples in interview style. They discuss their different relationships.
