An autobiographical look at the breakup of Ephron's marriage to Carl "All the President's Men" Bernstein that was also a best-selling novel. The Ephron character, Rachel is a food writer at a New York magazine who meets Washington columnist Mark at a wedding and ends up falling in love with him despite her reservations about marriage. They buy a house, have a daughter, and Rachel thinks they are living happily ever after until she discovers that Mark is having an affair while she is waddling around with a second pregnancy.

The film doesn't make this explicit, but in real-life, Nora Ephron had been so upset by her husband's infidelity that she went into labor prematurely. See more »
When Rachel begins a tape recording of her life with the baby, she identifies herself as "Rachel Samstat". There is no reason for her to use her maiden name, and in the rest of the movie she uses her married name. See more »
I love many things about this movie - first of all the cast is complete perfection (so many Oscar winners!); the comedy is funny without being stupid; and the end is not sugarcoated in the least. I love anything Streep does, and Nicholson really doesn't register that much. I think he replaced another actor, but he certainly didn't take this part and run with it. He doesn't even get to grin. I also have to mention Catherine O'Hara, who is hysterical, and Anna Maria Horsford.
