Song From the OST
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.
