Storyline

In his final year in the Political Science program at college in Chicago, Sam Basilli is still recovering from the breakup with his last boyfriend, Malcolm, that breakup which resulted in him not only losing his lover but his best friend. Sam, not the type for one night stands, still vows never to date a friend to avoid such double blows. With regard to relationships, Sam's best female friend since first year, Stasia Cooper, conversely never considers herself to have a boyfriend regardless of what the outside world sees in she not believing in commitment.

A Gay "When Harry Met Sally"
17 February 2020 | by initiator92See all my reviews

At it's heart, The "Thing About Harry" is a remake of the classic movie "When Harry Met Sally" but with two gay men. That's not a bad thing, but it's very similar to the original film in many ways. The "will they or won't they" dynamic was played out way too long for my taste and some of the character development lacked. Otherwise, it was a sweet movie with a terrific message. I mean we're allowed to have somewhat unbelievable rom-coms too,right? I enjoyed watching this movie and recommend it to others. Kudos to Freeform for making this movie. Let's hope more follow.
