This summer marks the 25th anniversary of “When Harry Met Sally,” which is obviously the most beloved film of all time (or at least, it is to me). The Etsy shop Seas and Peas clearly knows how to celebrate with this awesome card depicting one of the movie’s finer moments. It’s handmade out of recycled paper, so even the trees will thank you for it! In Sally’s honor, I vote for the creation of a “days of the week underpants” companion card. [Seas and Peas]
Mindy Kaling: Billy, this is truly the last question I have. … Do you think that Harry and Sally would still be together now?
Billy Crystal: Yes, well this is funny. This is what Meg and I talked about on stage, I said, “Well, where are they now? What do you think?” And Meg said, “I’m very optimistic about them.”
Mindy Kaling: Yes, perfect.
Billy Crystal: And the audience just laughed. I think they’re great. You have to believe in happily ever after. It does exist sometimes. And for them, I know that it’s true.
Noted romantic comedy enthusiast Mindy Kaling interviewed Billy Crystal for Entertainment Weekly, and their back-and-forth is jam packed with hilarious anecdotes, fascinating behind-the-scenes stories, and sweet thoughts on love and movies. I just finished reading it, and now my mouth physically hurts from smiling. It’s THAT adorable. My favorite exchange is the one above, in which Billy confirms what we all already knew: Harry & Sally made it. Sigh. After the jump, read Billy’s account of how that famous orgasm scene, ahem, came about… Keep reading »
It would be unfair to list off Nora Ephron’s greatest movie moments as merely a collection of scenes from “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless In Seattle”. Two important films, no doubt, but Ephron’s magic is sprinkled across all her work: from the Instant Messages written in “You’ve Got Mail” to Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep’s rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in “Heartburn.” Grab a pen and take note while we run down some of our favorite Ephronisms–you might surprise yourself as you grab “Michael” at your local surviving Blockbuster later today.

Good morning! Let’s get this week off to a pleasurable start, shall we? Here’s an awesome supercut of Meg Ryan’s fake orgasm scene in “When Harry Met Sally” spliced with other sighs, moans, oohs and ahhs from movies. It is vaguely NSFW so use headphones. [via Vimeo]
There are few more famous snippets of film dialogue than this exchange from the 1989 Blly Crystal and Meg Ryan classic, “When Harry Met Sally”:
Harry: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sally: Why not?
Harry: What I’m saying is — and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form — is that men and women can’t be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.

Whoever thought of the premise for Katherine Heigl‘s orgasm in The Ugly Truth (her awful-looking upcoming flick with Gerard Butler) should be fired.
Hot blonde woman randomly receives a pair of remote control vibrating panties in a package at her front door, puts them on for a date, which somehow turns into a business meeting, and then starts orgasming in front of all her business colleagues when a little boy stumbles upon the remote control. Um, what? Bish, please! Like we said, pink slip.
Show them how it’s done, Meg Ryan. We compiled the best orgasms we could find on the YouTubes. Keep reading »
Women love movies. Dudes love movies too. Unfortunately, women and men don’t always love the same movies — that’s why we once vetoed a dude because he couldn’t see the cinematic power of Fear. When you’ve got a boyfriend or even when you’re just going on a date with someone new, going to the cinema necessitates negotiation. You want emotions and romance and hot guys, he wants explosions, and blood, and protruding limbs. You want Reese Witherspoon, he wants Bruce Willis. 27 Dresses sounds awesome, 28 Days Later not so much.
Now be honest, how many times have you been talked into seeing a movie that ends with an epic battle where the hero’s head comes flying off at the sharp edge of a masculine sword? If the answer to that question is anything other than “zero,” you need our help in choosing chick flicks he’ll actually like.
Lucky for you, we’ve assembled an amazing list of compromises: 10 chick flicks your dude will totally like. We understand all the elements that make up a great movie: a compelling story, some humor, and a hot person or, you know, five. But before that, start off with Ask Men’s Top Ten Guy Movies Women Will Like. You can opt for one of their’s next movie night, or you could skip the blood and guts fest and give HIM a lesson in film appreciation with these chick flicks he’ll have a hard-on for, after the jump… Keep reading »
What if your Big O was shifted into overdrive? Sometimes getting lucky isn’t lucky at all claim four women recently interviewed by ABC News. They all suffer from Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS), a disorder that was diagnosed only six years ago but has been affecting some women since birth. Like the Greek Myth about Sisyphus, the king forced to push a rock uphill for all eternity, these women feel the same burden from a constant “throbbing, pulsing, or tingling without the persons sexual desire,” as Dr. Irwin Goldstein describes it. Worst of all, even after they climax, there is no relief. “It works at the moment, but as soon as you stop, it’s right back there again,” one woman said. Since PSAS has only been recently identified, treatments are still being explored. Some women use an anti-depressant, some women fill a condom with ice, and some even go for electro-shock. While there is no cure yet, there is help through the PSAS Support Group. Keep reading »
