Trivia

  • In the museum scene, Billy Crystal (Harry) ad-libbed, “But, I would be proud to partake of your pecan pie.” Meg Ryan (Sally) laughed and looked to her right where director Rob Reiner silently prompted her to go with it.
  • The film is based on director Rob Reiner’s experiences post-divorce and as a single man. Coincidentally, Reiner met his current wife during the making of this film.
  • Tom Hanks turned down the role of Harry, as he thought the film was “too lightweight”. Michael Keaton was also considered.
  • The “Win, Lose or Draw” scene was entirely improvised.
  • Meg Ryan had to go through her fake orgasm repeatedly as the scene was shot over and over.
