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.

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.

I read this in under 2 hours, and some reviewers complained that that's not good value for the money. From my perspective, at $10 that's a dollar an outright laugh, plus several bonus chuckles and smiles, so it was well worth the price. My leisure time is very limited so I appreciate a little concentrated fun! Others complained that it's not written as a screenplay, but I just wanted an enjoyable book to read, plus I liked Nora Ephron's commentary on how she put the story together with Rob Reiner.

Reading the screenplay was almost as good as watching the movie. . .almost. I found myself saying the words to myself before I even read them; I have seen the movie countless times and never tire of watching it.

I was fascinated to learn the history of how the movie was conceptualized. This alone makes it well worth the price. It's a must have for fans of the movie.

Rest in peace, Nora Ephron. Your legacy will live on forever!When Harry Met Sally. . .

I have always loved the movie When Harry Met Sally and watch it about once a year. It's nice to have this book by the writer. The dialogue is clever, the characters are realistic and the humor is wonderful. We all know a Harry or Sally! It's a great romantic comedy by a talented writer. It is great to have the book to refer to if you want to look over a certain part from the movie in detail. It is short, but that's the whole story!

Of all movie genres I would have to say that Romantic Comedies are my favorite. And of all Romantic Comedies, WHEN HARRY MET SALLY is by far the best ever. Two people never hated each other more in the beginning. Then we soon learn that two people were never more right for each other. If you haven't seen it yet, you are in for a treat.

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.

Nora Ephron was an incredible writer. I enjoy reading her books because they are a fun way to relate to the many sides to being a woman.
When Harry Met Sally is a wonderful collaboration between Nora and Rob Reiner.
