What’s Your Comfort Movie? | A Cup of Jo

1

Imagine this: You’ve had a long day – say, stressful work, restless kids, a global pandemic – and you just want to turn your brain off. So, what chill-out movie do you turn to? Mine is a no-brainer…

When Harry Met Sally. I always laugh throughout the 1989 romcom and can quote almost every line. The ending makes my heart swell, and suddenly everything feels all right.

Here are three fun facts:

– In the original ending, Harry and Sally didn’t end up together. (!)

– Tow of the studio’s top choices for Harry were Tom Hanks and Michael Keaton, and Sally might have been played by Molly Ringwald.

– Screenwriter Nora Ephron ‘s title ideas included ‘How They Met,’ ‘Boy Meets Girl,’ ‘Just Friends,’ ‘Words of Love,’ and ‘Harry, This Is Sally.’

So, I’m curious: What’s your comfort movie? Please share below!
