Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson are wonderful together in this lighthearted look at modern romance headed for failure, based on Nora Ephron's best-selling novel. She's a magazine writer who gives up her career for love and family. He's a playboy newspaper columnist who can't quite give up his old tricks. And if that combination doesn't give a relationship Heartburn, nothing will!


  • Heartburn

    I loved everything about this movie. Having grown up in Washington, this movie captures the era perfectly and I love the scenes in DC. It' smart and engaging and real. I've seen this movie several times and will watch it again!

  • Great movie!

    Anything with Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson is worth seeing but, where the soundtrack? And Mike Nichols as the Director? What a great combination.

    Pointless and ugliest movie ever!!! … It's a trap!
  • Awesome movie for Ephron Fans

    By NerdAlert808
    I'm a huge fan of Nora Ephron's books. With the exception of When Harry Met Sally, her movies seem to lack some of the depth and texture of her written word. If you read 'I feel bad about my neck' you already know this story about her second marriage and how it ends. She is actually very sympathetic with Carl Bernstein's character and all the characters truly live and breathe. This movie has all the elements of her best work and was a very entertaining movie.
  • Has anyone actually seen this movie?

    Youd think it would be good with these two actors but it falls short of all expectations. It was just okay.
