Editorial Reviews

Review

"A winner, a lavishly romantic lark, brimming over with style, intelligence and flashing wit." -- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"[When Harry Met Sally ...] will go down as the classic of 1989. One of the most endearing, enjoyable films ever -- I couldn't recommend it more highly." -- Marilyn Beck

"A comic valentine to love..." -- Time

"A buoyant comedy! It contains what may be the year's single most uproarious scene." -- Gene Shalit, Today, NBC-TV

"Deliciously funny ... You'll love it. I dare you to resist it."

-- Judith Crist

From the Inside Flap

Rob Reiner's enormously funny and moving When Harry Met Sally ... -- a romantic comedy about the difficult, frustrating, awful, funny search for happiness in an American city, where the primary emotion is unrequited love -- is delighting audiences everywhere. Now, the complete screenplay is published. Written by Nora Ephron -- author of screenplays for Silkwood and Heartburn (from her own best-selling novel) -- When Harry Met Sally...is as hilarious on the page as it is on the screen. The book includes an introduction by the author.

More About the Author

Nora Ephron has received Academy Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay for When Harry Met Sally, Silkwood, and Sleepless in Seattle, which she also directed. She lives in New York City with her husband, writer Nicholas Pileggi.

Format: Paperback
Screwball comedy is dead. At least it was after motion pictures became colored, and more and more expensive, filled with action and meaningless special effects.
"When Harry Met Sally...", however, marks the rebirth of that genre long forgotten. And just like Rob Reiner's 1989 film, Nora Ephron's screenplay transports the charm, the wit and likeability of characters that are not heroic stereotypes or unreal personalities, but everyday people with everyday problems, striving for a not so everyday happy-ending.
Featuring the hilarious fake-orgasm scene that easily found its place in movie history, and one of the most touching declarations of love ever written, "When Harry Met Sally..." is a modern classic, a must-read for future screenwriters and playwrights, just as well as for everyone with a sense of humor and a romantic core.

This is her novelized version of the screenplay that she and Rob Reiner wrote. She explains what they were thinking and how they decided on the course of the story. I loved reading it and wished it were longer.

The script is well written but the format is not that of the conventional screenplay and so that was a little weird. There's a lot of talking and not a lot of action and so the format ended up not being too much of a problem.

Both Harry and Sally are so typical when they talk to each other. Watch the movie for manymany times and still laugh out.
