In the film When Harry Met Sally, the question whether heterosexual men and women can maintain platonic friendships is raised. At the beginning of the film, Harry asserts that it is not possible because "the sex part gets in the way" and Sally disagrees.
This discussion is explored through the film's narrative which is centred around the two characters negotiating the terms of their relationship at different phases of their lives. It ends with the protagonists marrying one another. Harry appears to have won the argument with the film's Hollywoodesque happy ending.
