To remember Nora Ephron, which movie of hers would you revisit and why?

Asked by mazingerz88 (19001points) June 27th, 2012

Nora Ephron passed away due to leukemia. I think I’ll be watching Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally, two of the greatest modern romantic comedy movies, to commemorate her terrific writing.

Julie and Julia

Heartburn and when Harry Met Sally. Both had some really great lines, and good all around.

Silkwood was great, but difficult for me to watch.

She wrote Heartburn following her divorce from Carl Bernstein (of Watergate scandal fame) and one of her memorable quotes is when she speaks about how great it is to have yourself played by Meryl Streep in the movie. Helps to take away the sting of the whole experience :)

There aren’t a whole lot of movies I would watch a second time but I’be watched When Harry Met Sally more times than I can count.

EDIT: Heres the Streep quote verbatim

“I highly recommend having Meryl Streep play you. If your husband is cheating on you with a carhop, get Meryl to play you. You will feel much better.”

Priceless :)

Sleepless in Seattle is one of my favorite films. That would be my go-to Ephron.
I enjoy When Harry Met Sally, but every time I see it, I can’t help but notice how it is just a bunch of Woody Allen movies cut together.
