WHen Harry Met Sally
Twenty-five years ago today on July 14, 1989, “When Harry Met Sally” went into limited release (MGM carefully platformed the film, something of a rarity for a major summer studio release even then). It became a giant hit, grossing $92 million in the U.S.—about the equivalent of double that when adjusted for inflation. Rob Reiner’s film, made from Nora Ephron’s script, and following the titular mismatched pair (Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan) who set out to explore the question of whether a man and a woman can be friends without sex and/or love getting in the way (spoiler: no), left a permanent mark on pop culture, influencing countless romantic comedies that came after. But did it also break the genre?

Love, Rosie
Is "Love, Rosie" the sort of British answer to "Knocked Up"? Maybe on the surface. Both films involve pregnancies, relationships and the dramedic (yes, we just made up that word) repercussions that follow. If Judd Apatow's film ended after the birth, Christian Ditter's tale shows what happens long, long after.

Someone out there must have seen something that we, as yet, have not, but it looks like Hollywood is still trying to make Sam Claflin happen. The young British actor was virtually anonymous in “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” but that didn’t stop him lining up a key role in “The Hunger Games” franchise as Finnick Odair. Perhaps it’s that the films we’ve seen him in so far haven’t really harnessed his talents (and that’s perfectly feasible considering their respective quality), so we’ll hold out hopes that he’ll bring the goods in the future; perhaps in “Love, Rosie,” in which he’s just been cast alongside Lily Collins.
