Editorial Reviews

Nora Ephron's novel, based on her stormy marriage to reporter Carl Bernstein, is brought to the screen by director Mike Nichols. Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson star as the ill-fated lovers, struggling with new responsibilities (home, family) and old problems (infidelity). Jeff Daniels, Stockard Channing, Catherine O'Hara, Milos Forman also star; look for Kevin Spacey (his film debut) as a subway hood. 109 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English. NOTE: This Title is Out Of Print; Limit One Per Customer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than I Expected October 2, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I avoided this movie when it was released because I couldn't imagine that a film based on the marital breakup of Nora Ephron and Carl Bernstein would interest me. Although I am an admirer of both these folks for their talents as writers, I had always agreed with Richard Burton when he said, when asked if he would be writing about his marriage and breakup with Elizabeth Taylor, that even though love might be dead, that it wasn't for sale. Be that as it may, this movie is certainly worth seeing. Although the plot is a little thin, there are some very funny moments. (Whether some of the events actually happened in the Bernstein/Ephron saga doesn't matter.) Any film directed by Mike Nichols, starring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson, with cinematography by Nestor Amendros is well worth seeing.

Both Ms. Ephron and the viewer have the last laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really, my all-time favorite. March 31, 2005
Format:DVD
My husbands laughs when I say a movie is my favorite(I have many favorites), but this one really is. I also love to read and what sets this adaptation apart is the way the two complement eachother,truly brilliant. The movie adds elements that the book didn't dwell on and the book covers all the details that movies just can't. Some movies can touch your heart in such a way that they leave you a bit raw. For me, this is one of those movies. No, it may not be a cinematic event for all, but for those who have loved with their whole heart and have been (or even risked) being hurt, you will find a good laugh and a few tears here. Only Nora Ephron herself could have wrote a screenplay that complemented her novel so well, and thankfully Mike Nichols brought it to life in such a way. Meryl Streep really is at her best here and the whole cast is excellent. I really do love this movie, it always amazes me that it is so underrated. Give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Thrash! October 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is one of the most phenomenal pitures I have ever seen! It is highly ignored and often looked over, which I have never understood. My confusion is due mostly in part to genius performances by both Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep. The writing and acting are superb.
Heartburn must come out on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Streep Movie December 4, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this movie. I agree with the other reviewer - WHY is this not on DVD? I am waiting for it to come out on dvd so I can purchase it. This is one movie you don't want to miss. It is funny and sad at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Streep and Nicholson are great in this film December 5, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I never read the book, so my point of view is purely on the film. And I loved it long ago and still love it. There's an intesity Streep delivers that pains you to observe her character in this situation. The last 30 minutes is so good... and to add Carly Simon's Itsy Bitsy Spider rendition of Coming Around Again just did it for me. Best metaphore. Fabulous ending.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shallow and cliched. August 22, 2012
By Riley
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
We rush through inane scenes of characters who just gossip and complain and snipe at each other, just so we can hurriedly get to the central conflict between two immature adults.

Blegh.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tragic - NOT Comedy July 18, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is not a comedy. It's not actually even a good script. It's well-written but the whole basis of the script: marriage, affair, pathetic and sad.

It is saved by the phenomenal acting of two of the greatest actors of the century. But the script says, "Hollywood is desperate for decent scripts."

This movie is one of Meryl's best performances. Jack is funny and such a good actor. I saw this movie years ago and wanted to buy it. Just a good movie.

This movie is ok if you like the actors in it. But overall it's a pretty depressing movie. It just shows how horrible people can be sometimes.

Read it over and over. Disappointed that it did not match up to the movie. It had several differences with the characters. But it was very well written.
