When Harry Met overrated film

Whew. I saw d film.

It was a tiring journey. I did not have subtitles at first. So i downloaded subtitles and ripped the movie to a divx file. Then i saw with the subtitles.Was all that worth it? Sadly no.

I kept on going to other things in between scenes. I could not concentrate on the movie, it did not have that power to keep me fixed. The story of two people, in between relationships and each other.

May be it is a girls movie. I knew HumTum was inspired from this one, i could see some of the scenes which came out of this. They trying to fix each other with their friends, and the friends getting hitched to each other, for eg. But i feel HumTum was a guys version of this movie, so i liked it.

Thinking back, i think i had a problem with all those 80's rom-coms. Sleepless in Seattle, You've got Mail.. Hmmm there is a pattern emerging here- Meg Ryan.

Only good part i liked was the ending, with the dialogue " 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."

I want to see HumTum again.


  1. This is why I am staying away from 1963's pink panther. Maybe I will watch this to see what you meant by girls movie :P

  2. well truth is...
    "When I realized I want to spend the rest of my life with somebody, I wanted to do the things that will never be approved later".

  3. :D tht was a very honest comment from joise...but i liked the movie You have got mail. Dont remember seeing Harry met Sally
